In Fiddler's Composer UI, please save the URL history between invocations, it would be a tremendous help. (Also saving all request header info. would be even better).

Fiddler is a great tool & Composer an excellent feature of it.  I frequently have to reboot my dev. PC  for various reasons (actually it crashes a lot) and loosing my Composer URL history is a painful consequence.  Could the URL history be retained between invocations?  I use a set of about a dozen different endpoints frequentl, so a history size of 12-20 would likely be enough.

It would be even better if the last used request header and/or body and/or type (POST/GET/..) and/or Protocol (HTTP/1.1 etc.) for each URL could also be saved but perhaps that is asking too much.

 Bless you for making this tool.

I was blind but now can see (it)! Praise the Lord!

I must have been blind, to miss that.  Sorry for bothering you. Thank you. Great tool :)

Fiddler's Composer preserves history if the Log Requests box is ticked. The requests are stored in %userprofile%\documents\fiddler2\captures\requests\ComposerHistory.raz

 

If that isn't working for you, you might try deleting that Fiddler without Fiddler running, then see if it's written properly after you start Fiddler, use the Composer, and then exit Fiddler.

Fiddler does not store that information between invocations of the Fiddler application currently, at least it doesn't for me.  I.e. the history appears to be stored in memory (e.g. RAM) rather than persistently (e.g. in the Registry or a file).  So I have my own files that I have to cut-and-paste data from.  Seems a pity as Fiddler already has a history, just not a persistent one.

It's not really clear what you're asking. Fiddler's Composer does store history, which can be seen in the History pane below the Execute button. When you click one of these entries, it stores everything about the request you've executed.
