Silverlight Applications Crash in Firefox When Recording or Running Scripts

Article ID: 811  |  Last updated: 20 Mar, 2015

Problem

When recording or running QA Wizard Pro scripts, Microsoft Silverlight applications running in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.4 or later crash when a message box is displayed.

Cause

Using the MessageBox.Show method to display Silverlight message boxes causes Firefox to become unresponsive or plugins running in Firefox to crash. This is a known Firefox issue.

Solution

Record and run scripts that test Silverlight message boxes in a supported version of Internet Explorer.

You can also replace the MessageBox.Show method with a custom ChildWindow class. Refer to the Silverlight help for more information.
