Is it possible to open Firefox browser so it is NOT under remote control?

I am trying to use Katalon Studio to run a test on a website that uses PIV-I authentication. I can manually open the browser, log in, put in my credentials and access the page; in fact, I am even able to use Katalon Recorder to access the website. However, when I kick off a script with Katalon Studio it opens the browser under remote control. I wouldn’t think this would be a problem except this version of the Firefox browser does not save the security device information needed to use the PIV-I driver therefore preventing me from accessing the site. Is there a setting in either Katalon Studio or Firefox that can change this? I haven’t been able to find anything yet. I also have a similar thread on Firefox’s support site as well to see if there is something with Firefox I can change.

I am using Firefox v58 and Katalon Studio 5.3.1 on Windows 7

Thank you in advance for any support on this issue.

No, but you can run script on Firefox by creating a separate profile.
Create a new profile:

  1. Open Run (windows key + R) and type firefox.exe –p and click OK
  2. Give a suitable name and click OK.

Then place this code in the script, before navigating to the URL
import com.kms.katalon.core.webui.keyword.WebUiBuiltInKeywords as WebUI
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxOptions
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxProfile
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.internal.ProfilesIni
import com.kms.katalon.core.webui.driver.DriverFactory
import com.kms.katalon.core.webui.driver.WebUIDriverType

WebUIDriverType executedBrowser = DriverFactory.getExecutedBrowser()
switch(executedBrowser) {
case WebUIDriverType.FIREFOX_DRIVER: // “Firefox”
ProfilesIni profile = new ProfilesIni();
FirefoxProfile FF = profile.getProfile(“Automation_Profile”);
FirefoxOptions options = new FirefoxOptions().setProfile(FF);
System.setProperty(‘webdriver.gecko.driver’, DriverFactory.getGeckoDriverPath());
WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(options);
// let Katalon Studio to use the WebDriver created here

Hope this will help :slight_smile:
