During load mode replay of a script in TruClient Firefox, the step responsible for opening a PDF document in the browser fails.
This could result in a similar error:
t=00007192ms: Error -205177: ** 4: Activate browser window #2 ** failed - runtime error:
'Ordinal': The specified value (2) is invalid [MsgId: MERR-205177]
The display of a PDF document in the browser is handled differently in TruClient Firefox replay modes. In Interactive (Develop script) mode the content of the PDF document is displayed in the browser page. In Load mode replay the PDF content is not displayed. Instead a "Save as" dialog is shown.
The difference is caused by the different mimetypes.rdf file used in the interactive and load profiles for the script. The mimetypes.rdf used in load mode does not contain information about handling PDF files.
To handle the PDF files properly in load mode replay, TruClient must use the same mimeTypes.rdf as the one used during interactive replay.
To fix the issue:
- Copy the file mineTypes.rdf from the <script>\profiles\interactive folder
- Paste it into <LR installation directory>\bin\firefox\browser\defaults\profile\ - create the folder if it doesn't exist
