Beta release of Coded UI Test support for Mozilla Firefox!


Today we have released the Beta of “Visual Studio Test Package for Mozilla Firefox” which can be downloaded from here.

Test Package for Mozilla Firefox is a power tool for Visual Studio 2010 that extends the Coded UI Test and Action Recording features to Mozilla Firefox. It enables UI actions, that have been recorded on a website/web application via Windows Internet Explorer 7 and 8, to be played back on Mozilla Firefox web browser. Please note that recording UI actions on Mozilla Firefox is not supported. The current release is compatible with Mozilla Firefox 3.5 and 3.6. Please refer to the documentation available on the download site for details.

This package is compatible with and can be installed on top any SKUs (EN-US locale only) that are available as part Visual Studio 2010 RC and has Coded UI Test and Action Recording features in it.

    I am running coded UI scripts under Firefox browser.

    Script plays back fine.

    BUT the assertions fail. The assertion in IE stores the end of line character and Firefox doesn't. This means the actual and expected differ because the expected  inner text (recorded under Ie) has 4 lines  and the actual inner text only has 1.

    Is there a way around this?

    I don't really want to re-record all my assertions
