Simple and Easy tool. Highly Appreciated.
But right-now, after the Firefox updated this add on is no more valid.
The person/team behind this app. Can you please update as I believe many people are using this.
Thanks in advance.
Been using it for the last two years. Fast and easy to use.
By any chance can I run it with FireFox 56.0b6 (64-bit)? I cannot see it anymore after the update.
This tool helps my productivity like no other. Thanks!
I'm running windows 10 FF37 and when I right mouse click on an element, I don't see this add-on in the menu? I restarted FF. Help!!
This is one of the most efficient and easiest one I have seen so far. Is there any plan for updating it to webextension so that it's compatible with newer firefox versions?
Thanks for this addon !
First let me Thank you for this Wonderful tool...
Secondly I am unable to Copy any Xpaths on Ubuntu 14.04 Lts OS for FF-48.0 Version. Please check onto it and if rectified would be of Greater help for most of the Ppl in QA UI Auotmation Industry including myself.
Hoping for the Solution at the Earliest. Thanks Once Again.
I'm afraid I'm limited to checking using Saucelabs' range of OS, which doesn't cover Ubuntu/FF48. With that said, on all OS/FF versions tested I've been unable to reproduce the problem. The only times I've seen this problem, its been caused by an issue with other addons or the Firefox profile in use. The easiest way to test this is to try and reproduce it using a newly created/temporary Firefox profile.
Very handy tool but i can not copy code. Pls help me ASAP
The locator copy function is tested and confirmed working on every (non dev/beta) release I've tried. If it isn't working on your browser install, it's likely being prevented by another addon.
Hi i am getting locators but i am unable to copy the content from the window.
If way is there please let me know
Must have .. practice should be done by seeing generated webdrivers xpath.I have tested most of xpath are accurately generated.
Very handy tool , must have for any selenium developer
Simply great addon 5 star
It works perfect, thank you man! it's really helps me with my automation tests, it find element locator of element which was not vievable for other tools , very cool! 5 stars
This add on is very helpful to locate correct element. Reduce time taken to find or write Xpath locator
If the web element is duplicated it will show in not preferred Xpath list
Hi, this is a very good add-on and like one of the reviewers said, it worked for a while and then suddenly stopped showing up in the menu.
That's a shame because it's the best I've found so far and it was really great while it showed up.
I've tried different versions of Firefox (currently on version 46.0), resetting my extensions, removing and re-enabling my extensions but I can't use get the add-on to even show up in my menu.
It'd be really great if you could help and many thanks for building this in the first place. Much appreciated.
Hi, This add on was working fine for me, but when I updated firefox to the latest version which is 46.0, it doesn't work. I've uninstalled 46.0 and installed version 35 but still no luck. any known issues?
this makes webdriver testing much easier and more pleasant.
This is by far the quickest and most useful tool for any selenium developer. This application has saved me so much time and has made my tests way cleaner.
I have ran across a reoccurring issue though. For some reason, even after reinstalling, I cannot get the tool to show up in my menu navigation. Maybe its an issue with FF 40.0.3. Though Id expect this to fixed by today's update(Sept17). Maybe its clashing with selenium, firebug, or firepath plugins.
Even with this horrible bug :( Im still giving this add-on a 5. Though it has a lot of room to improve as others have mentioned, its still very useful and will make a big efficiency improvement in writing tests.
Outstanding how you did made this so helpful for all different languages that can be used with selenium. Thank you for making it and keeping it updated!
The effort is really great, But the major problem is most of the time it deals with id or class, now if id is dynamic /auto generated or multiple web elements have same class name it will be major issue.I think it won't work.If it found any id attribute in webelement it tries to work with that id only.
...but please do use the addon before reviewing it.
"the major problem is most of the time it deals with id or class"
This is not how the addon works. The logic is agnostic to the types of node attributes available (as it can't guess which one is most suitable for your webapp), so it has no bias toward id or class.
"If it found any id attribute in webelement it tries to work with that id only"
This is not how the addon works. For example, if you try it on the mozilla addons search bar, it will find the id attribute with value 'search-q' and present it as an option. However, it will also offer locators based on type, name, class, placeholder, etc.
"if id is dynamic /auto generated or multiple web elements have same class name it will be major issue.I think it won't work"
This is not how the addon works. When it offers you locators, it will automatically check their uniqueness for you. If a class value is shared between multiple elements, it will allow you to select it but it will mark it with a red exclamation so you know it's a non-unique (and risky) locator to use.
If the id is auto-generated, like id=form_div_span_txtName, the addon will present you with a contains() locator based on the final and significant part of the id.
If an id is truly non-deterministic then, naturally, you won't find a non-dynamic locator to work based on the id attribute. This is also true of manual location. In which case, I'd politely ask your dev team to implement data-id attributes for your testable elements.
just awesome, mind blowing..it helps me a lot and saves my time as well
Great stuff Andrew... It simply eases our work... Good Job...
Thanks a lot. This add-on is simply great. For non experienced guys it will help 1000 % and most beautiful thing is XPATH locator, all xpath which i was designed manually now its giving automatically on single click.
