Unable to run script using Firefox - get error "Unable to find the object Sys.Browser("*)"

I have a script that runs the following (Python) code to open the browser and pass in a  valid URL:   

Browsers.Item[btFirefox].Run(Project.Variables.EMBEDDED_LINK_URL)

 

It fails on this line each time I run it, giving a "Unable to find the object Sys.Browser("*"). I am able to successfully run this same script if I try btIExplorer or btChrome. 

 

The version of Firefox I have installed is 100.0.2 (64-bit). I had a look at the Firefox patches page and it looks like the latest patch is for Firefox version 98.

The version of TestComplete I have currently is 15.30.355.7 x64. 

 

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Should I update my version of TestComplete to 15.40? Will this resolve the issue with Firefox?

Sorry, that won't help.  What that page is telling you is that there are no patches available for Firefox 99 or Firefox 100 yet.

The workaround right now is to use Firefox 98.

Thank you, I'll get FF rolled back to FF98. Is there a plan to create a patch for FF100?

Yes for the plans but I have not seen a timeline yet.
