Extension for Firefox

Note: You need to use at least Firefox version 52.0 to perform browser automations. Firefox versions 65.0 and lower require an extra add-on.

Install from UiPath Studio

  1. Open Studio.
  2. Navigate to Tools > UiPath Extensions.
  3. Select Firefox > Install. Choose one of the available methods from the drop-down:

    • Group Policy Offline
    • Current User
  4. Click the Add button, and then OK to confirm. The UiPath Extension for Firefox is now installed.

Install from the Studio Installer

  1. Run the UiPathStudio.msi installer.

  2. Select Advanced Settings > Extensions > UiPath extension for Firefox.
  3. Click Install. Studio setup continues while also installing the extension for Firefox.

Install from the Command Prompt

  1. Click the Windows Start button and type cmd in the search field.
  2. Open Command Prompt.
  3. Change the directory to the UiPath installation folder (cd C:\Program Files\UiPath\Studio\UiPath).
  4. Use the SetupExtensions /Firefox command to install the extension. Firefox opens up and a confirmation pop-up is displayed.

  5. Click the Add button, and then OK to confirm. The UiPath Extension for Firefox is now installed.

Install from Group Policy - Offline

You can also install the UiPath Extension for Firefox by using Group Policies. This method silently installs the extension and enables it, without requiring user confirmation.

To install the extension offline via policy, on the target machine, install the UiPath extension for Firefox with administrator privileges using the following command:

C:\Program Files\UiPath\Studio\UiPath\SetupExtensions.exe /firefox-policy-offline.


The UiPath Extension for Firefox installed via Group Policy, with the /Firefox-Policy-Offline parameter, can be uninstalled by running from an elevated command prompt:
&"C:\Program Files\UiPath\Studio\UiPath\SetupExtensions.exe" /Firefox-Policy-Offline /uninstall /silent&"C:\Program Files\UiPath\Studio\UiPath\SetupExtensions.exe" /Firefox-Policy-Offline /uninstall /silent
If the UiPath Extension for Firefox was installed for the current user with the /Firefox parameter, it can be uninstalled with the following command (that doesn't require an elevated command prompt):
&"C:\Program Files\UiPath\Studio\UiPath\SetupExtensions.exe" /Firefox /uninstall /silent&"C:\Program Files\UiPath\Studio\UiPath\SetupExtensions.exe" /Firefox /uninstall /silent

You can also uninstall by opening Studio, navigating to Tools > UiPath Extensions, and selecting Firefox > Uninstall. The extension will be uninstalled with the same method used for the installation. This method is displayed in the disabled drop-down next to the Uninstall button.
