I installed Fiddler Everywhere on Fedora 31. Clicking "View full response" for any response opens a pop-up window which is reasonably sized, but the content of which is a scrollable area about one line high at the top of the window and there is no obvious way to expand it to see more than one line of the response. Screenshot attached.

I fire up Fiddler Everywhere on my Mac. Generally, it appears to do nothing.

In further detail, "Stream" and "Decode" can be toggled, but otherwise do nothing. The connections icon has a hover-over describing my host and states I have a network connection. The help icon goes to the very limited documentation via browser. The settings icon pops open the settings dialog, which does appear to save changes, but not impact the "nothing" being done by the application. The capture button and inspectors button appear to do nothing. The main viewing area states "No records available." The area to the right of the main area states "Please, select a single Web Session to inspect." And that is it.

Either I'm doing (or not doing) something dumb, or it just isn't working for me. Any help would be appreciated :)

Mac specs: High Sierra 10.13.6, 2.6GHz i7, 16 GB memory

When I try to trusst the fiddler root certifficate, I get the message "not successfull" and see a line like this in the logfile:

[2021-03-01 16:29:48:866] [Information] [Fiddler] Error when trying to check if certificate is trusted: '.', hexadecimal value 0x00, is an invalid character. Line 304, position 38.

I also tried to trust the certificate by hand via the keyring utility.

What can I try?

Scheduled for FiddlerCore Release

Hi there,

I've successfully setup fiddler-everywhere 0.4.0 and am able to sniff traffic to various websites on my linux (Ubuntu 18.04) laptop. However some https sites are not working - fiddler-everywhere severs the connection at the SSL handshake phase. These same sites work in the windows version of Fiddler (v 5.0.20192.25091 - built 04 June 2019) however.

What is the status of the SSL support in fiddler-everywhere vs windows Fiddler?

Example site that fails over https:

Describe the bug
When the location of the Windows Desktop is changed (e.g. like described here), the functionality for exporting the root certificate is not working.

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Change the location of the Desktop on Windows OS
  2. Run Fidder Everywhere, ensure that Setting -> HTTPS -> Decrypt HTTPS traffic is checked
  3. Press Settings -> HTTPS -> Decrypt HTTPS traffic -> Export root certificate to Desktop
  4. Error message is shown in a tooltip:

Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Users<username>\Desktop\FiddlerRootCertificate.crt'.

Expected behavior
The certificate is exported.

Desktop (please complete the following information):

  • OS: Windows 10

Fiddler can't connect to domains with 3 consecutive hyphens.

This error occurs:

fiddler.network.https> HTTPS handshake to r1---sn-ab5szn7e.googlevideo.com (for #793) failed. System.ArgumentException Decoded string is not a valid IDN name.
Parameter name: unicode


To reproduce:

Start Fiddler Everywhere (at least on Mac), make sure HTTPS decryption is enabled.

Go to www.youtube.com and try to watch a video.

The aforementioned error will occur in Fiddler.
