In the last month a problem has surfaced with FiddlerCap. When selecting Decrypt HTTPS, a warning regarding decrypting HTTPS traffic pops up. Saying OK to the message unchecks the Decrypt HTTPS box and than a message of "Sorry, unable to create root certificate" pops up.
Fiddler will install on those systems without an issue. However it is not ideal to request custoemr to run Fiddler instead of FiddlerCap.

default session save directory

When saving sessions to a file, the initial directory opened in the dialog box is \Documents\Fiddler2\Captures in the current user's home.

It would be helpful if this dialog would remember the last saved location and open that instead. This is the behavior within a Fiddler session (i.e saving for a second time). The suggestion is to extend this between sessions too (closing and opening fiddler).

Thank you!

Easier exclusion of hosts

At the moment it is very tedious to exclude certain hosts. For example I'd like to exclude Facebook, Google, Twitter, and dozens others that my normal browser usage generates. I cannot just enable the intranet filter because I need to inspect non-intranet traffic. Whitelisting does not work either because you might end up hiding important stuff without ever finding out.

Feature request: Add an exclusion menu item to the right click menu for a session in the session list. Assuming the host is "sub.domain.tld" add the following menu items:

Exclude "*.domain.tld"
Exclude "sub.domain.tld"
Exclude ""*.domain.tld;sub.domain.tld"

If multiple sessions are selected all hosts should be excluded in a single action.

This would be VERY handy. Users could build a meaningful filter list within a minute.

Enable launching IE specifically from FiddlerCap

I don't know a single person that uses IE for their default browser. As FiddlerCap only launches the default browser this means to get FiddlerCap to capture a session from IE, I have to change my default browser to IE.

In windows 8 this means I have to do the following:
1) Win+S to open Search and type: IE then press Enter
2) Click gear icon, click Internet Options.
3) Click Programs Tab.
4) Click Set Programs button.
5) Click Set your default programs link.
6) Select IE from the list of default programs.
7) Click the Set this program as default button.
8) Close Set Defaults window.
9) Close Internet Options window.

and as I don't run IE as my default browser, I have to do that everytime I use FiddlerCap to capture IE, which in support and testing happens often.

Very inconvenient... so my suggestion is to create a way to launch all the browsers that FiddlerCap supports specifically, regardless of what the OS default browser is.

fiddler for mono doesnt work with https

I've been using Fiddler for Mono Alpha. Then, I activated HTTPS support. Now I can't access any web page, HTTPS or not. I've had to disable proxy in my browser settings.

uninstall fiddler

How can I uninstall Fiddler Root - I think my son accidently downloaded it and now I am unable to access my work portal due to the certificate errors. I need help as soon as possible to try to get this off my system so I can access my work portal.
Any assistance is appreciated.

Can an edited page be reloaded without the changes be lost?

I use the great "AutoResponder" feature to replace a page with my own one, so that I perform changes on that page.

However, this process takes several steps. Create the autoresponder, create local page with the same content as the online page, then edit it, etc.

I see that you have the "F2" function: "Unlock for Editing".

However, when I reload the page, all changes are lost.

Can you just add a checkbox, like this: "[ ] Keep changes when reloading the page"

Or something like that?

Maybe a solution already exists?

WCAT postdata issue

When exporting to a WCAT script the "postdata" element for a request either needs to be written on the same line or in a separate file. What is produced now is multiline and the quotes are escaped but that doesn’t work with WCAT 6.3.
