error log.txt (12.7 KB)

Note-I am able to execute test cases successfully with Firefox browser and facing issue with Chrome browser.


Hi @sshejwal

Can you look under the path specified within the error to see if there’s a manifest file ? If there is then please send it here. Also, please try to switch to a user folder (Download folder for example) to see if the problem is resolved.


Hi ThanhTo,

manifest file is not present at given location.


Hi @sshejwal

Where is your Katalon Studio located ? Can you try to move it to a different locationb ?


Is there any way to completely disable Smart Wait? Failing that, an option to disable the Smart Wait extension?

The browser extension is causing issues for us, even though it has been turned off by default in Project > Settings > Execution > Default Smart Wait.


Hi @tangr6

Why do you think the extension is causing the trouble even if it’s turned off ? What are the troubles ?


It causes our file upload applet to hang indefinitely. Our current workaround has been to disable the extension in the manifest for the Chrome driver.

We were just wondering if it was possible to disable it in a less messy way…



We have already done this. This turns off smart wait by default, but the extension is still there, which is the thing causing issues.


Does this feature - that it waits for element to be clickable before clicking, only start from 7.0.0 or was it also in 6.3.3 ?



It’s available from 7.0 onward.


We will add an option to start a browser without Smart Wait extension in the upcoming release.

Thank you !
