Selenium IDE on Firefox 4 is Available for Testing! Now!

There have been a lot of questions about the support for Firefox 4 in Selenium IDE. We know that the current Selenium IDE v1.0.10 does not support Firefox 4. It is not a simple matter of bumping the maxversion to make it compatible. There are core technical changes that make the existing Selenium IDE incompatible. So, Selenium IDE v1.0.10 will never work on Firefox 4.

The good news is that we will release Selenium IDE v1.0.11 to work on Firefox 4 and we are working on it. We have already fixed several issues and yesterday I fixed the issue that prevented recording on Firefox 4. None of us use Selenium IDE a lot and we need your help to make it better.

    It would appear that either the latest directory has moved or there is a general problem with the xserve on openqa. Is there another place to retrieve this build?

    “Sometimes the Xserve server is not accessible.”

    Sounds not so professional to me.

    Aha! I was wondering about FF4 support. Great news seeing as how I upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 and can’t use selenium anymore. I’ll see if I can add anything to the dev effort.
