Arguments Create Firefox Browser Instance node


Good morning!
@AnotherFraudUser, Please help me, I ran into a problem in the Create Firefox Browser Instance node. Unable to pass argument: options.add_argument(‘user-data-dir=C:\ChromeProfile’)

Will look into it :+1:
Maybe there is a preference alternative - else I will update the node to include the option to add arguments as well :slight_smile:

Hi @Nuke_Attokurov , based on what you are showing, it looks like all the parameters are passed with prefix --.

So may be it should be:
options.add_argument('--user-data-dir=C:\\ChromeProfile')
instead of
options.add_argument('user-data-dir=C:\\ChromeProfile')

It would also be helpful if you shared what the error message is

The argument is correct only. This argument applies to Selenium from python. This is an argument for the Chrome Driver. I want to pass the same argument to the “Create Firefox Browser Instance” node with KNIME.

Hi @Nuke_Attokurov,

I looked into the issue and with the current setup of the node that was not possible.
I added new types to the preferences tab so you can set arguments as well.
argument = one option arguments e.g. --sandbox

argument2 = two option argument e.g. -profile C:/folder/profile
(this should be the equivalent of what the chrome argument does)

For what arguments are available you will have to checkout what is supported by selenium gecko :+1:

which creates a new profile folder on start :slight_smile:

Added this too all versions from 4.4 to 4.6
(might take a bit until all updates are through jenkins)

Hope that is what you needed.
*sorry for the delay - took a bit until a had time to setup the change

Hope that is works out (Knime 4.6 the update should be avilable now - others still need a bit to show up)
