Web Recorder & Object Spy Not Recording

Hi, the Web Recorder and Object Spy are no longer working. I can’t remember the last time it worked, probably 2018 when I last used it on a previous version. I’ve tried it on a fresh project with latest Java installed, latest browsers and drivers. No errors popup, I’ve tried restarting my machine and project and nothing changes. I’ve also tried recording multiple websites with no difference.

Please let us know what you are using Katalon Studio for?
