  3. Hi Rajkumar,

    Thanks for sharing such a wonderful article with us.

    I am using browser Firefox latest version(58) and observed that I am not able to install Firebug and Firepath software for latest firefox version.
    I googled the issue and found that Firebug is now inbuild in the browser itself and we do’t need to install it but there is no update for firepath.

    Could you please suggest an alternative of firepath software so that we can create new XPATH easily.

    Thanks
    Rakesh

    • Hi Rakesh,

      1. if you downgrade firefox 58 to 43.. you could use.
      2. Try plugin ‘Try Xpath’ – for Firefox 58
      3. Try ‘chropath’ plugin – for Chrome
      4. Its always good to learn to find XPath and CSS manually without any tool.
      here are the links to learn…
