    Hi guys,

    I have been using iMacros for quite a while now and I love the way it works. It's smooth and consistent.

    The thing is that is a bit time (& energy) consuming to remember and executing every day the various macros that I use for different purposes.

    I have recently found that there's a Firefox Add-on: My Weekly Browser Schedule that allows you to visit any site at a specific time when you set it up. And reading a post at How to Geek, they said it is possible to schedule running macros automatically - you can read the post here: http://www.howtogeek.com/113789/how-to-automate-repetitive-web-browser-tasks-with-imacros/

    So I installed My Weekly Browser Schedule Add-on on Firefox and set it up with a bookmark extracted from iMacros but when I try to run it, it doesn't work - please have a look at the following picture.

    I tried running a website with the Add-on and it works smoothly, the problem is with the iMacros, which actually is the main reason why I installed My Weekly Browser Schedule.

    Have you experienced anything like this? Can you please help me out here?

    Thanks a lot for your time!

    Best regards,
    CT

    Combing these two addons is a pretty good idea! That said, it did not work for me, either :(

    It would be great if any senior member of the community add some input to the thread

    I didn't have a problem at all. Go to your bookmarks and hit copy on the imacro you saved. And in the scheduler make sure the link looks similar to this: "imacros://run/?m=%23Current.iim" Thanks for the idea by the way. Never thought of something so simple that will help much on my server!

    When in doubt hit

    CTRL + SHIFT + J

    To see the global browser console (not the per-page console, this one is browser global). If there are errors between imacros and the new addon they'll show up there.
