Microsoft appears to have moved their web developer documentation from MSDN to MDN, making searches from Fiddler's toolbar return useless results. Please consider making the Search Cue text and Search URL configurable via a preference and set the defaults to "Search MDN" with a URL of https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/search?q=$SEARCHTERMHERE&topic=apps&topic=html&topic=css&topic=js&topic=api&topic=canvas&topic=svg&topic=webgl&topic=mobile&topic=webdev&topic=http&topic=webext&topic=standards
The last few Fiddler updates, through the auto update feature, resulted in a pop up saying that the update was not properly signed by Telerik. I, of course, immediately cancelled the install. I ended up going to the Fiddler website to do a full reinstall. This works, but it defeats the purpose of the auto update.
I'm a software tester. I often use composer to test HTTP requests.But composer needs to fill in the standard head, which is troublesome.Fiddler may enhance composer and add the standard HTTP header selection box. The history module adds some columns, such as name, URL, method, etc.I hope Fiddler is getting stronger and stronger.
I want to search (find) items in the request and response XML views. Currently it is painful. I have to copy the text out from Fiddler and then paste it into another application and do a search there.
We have filter to "Show only Internet Explore traffic" Like wise need filters for other browsers as well
Managing Composer history is pretty minimal LIFO. The ability to "rename" is somewhat hidden (right-click > Comment), but after doing so it would be nice to alphabetize it (or manually sort them). I thought about exporting and reimporting, but renumbering the .raz files is tedious.
When Telerik first acquired Fiddler, the community was afraid that Fiddler would become a paying tool. Telerik made an important statement: "Further, we have learned from the mistakes of others who have acquired free tools only to turn the tables on the developer community and monetize them at a later date." (source: https://www.telerik.com/about/press-releases/2012/09/10/telerik-announces-the-acquisition-of-fiddler). Recently, Telerik asked Chocolatey, a widely used Windows package management platform (https://chocolatey.org/) to remove Fiddler from the packages list. Whatever the reasons are, as a Chocolatey and Fiddler user, I am disappointed by that move. I am managing multiple machines, and Chocolatey helps me synchronize and accelerate new setups. Telerik just asked me to force manual installation of Fiddler, as well as manual upgrade (no, I don't want/need as many auto-update software as I have installed software). I see no value in doing so, except maybe forcing user registration (which is monetizing and breaks their promise) or for some legal reason. I would kindly ask Telerik to take a stance on what was communicated to the community, and allow Chocolatey to provide an easier way to get your tools installed on more machines. I'm filing this as a bug, since it was working, and it now is broken for me. Source: https://chocolatey.org/packages/fiddler4
Fiddler is perhaps the single most versatile piece of software I've ever had the pleasure of working with, and as such it would make life and work easier for countless testers and developers (and those of us combining these jobs). The idea is to be able to sniff packets going through a remote machine—passively. Doing it with wireshark requires me to ssh over into the machine and start tcpdump writing to stdin, from which wireshark then reads: ssh email@example.com "/usr/sbin/tcpdump -i eth0 port 80 and http -s 0 -w -" | "/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Wireshark/Wireshark.exe -k -i -" It starts a wireshark session and lets me see the captured packets in real time, which infinitely more convenient than any mucking about with remote saves with tcpdump, etc. But I don't have access to the convenience of Fiddler UI, and I would kill for it. In fact, even if I save the remote wireshark capture, Fiddler would claim that there is no IPv4 or IPv6 traffic in the pcap-ng (or pcap, or tcpdump...) capture, even though Wireshark clearly shows all the relevant http requests from which to glean the information. My current (and actually nicely working) solution is to use iptables to route all outgoing traffic from port 80 on the remote host to Fiddler's port 8888 in remote capture mode. It has its benefits in that I get full control over the sessions, but it is not always a viable solution, and to be able to passively monitor with Fiddler in real time would give it yet another level of versatility and omnipower! :)
Your software correctly throws up a big yellow warning message about when the system proxy has changed. But after that it seems not to realize when it's changed ....yet again ... back to being "checked" under the Windows "Lan Settings" dialog boxes. So, not a big deal but if you can make the message go away by monitoring that setting it would be cool. Or maybe even change the message to "green" when the checkbox gets ticked again and let the user dismiss it that way just so they know the current state. So, bounce between green and yellow colors depending on the "current live" setting. That would be fun! :) Or just take it away and put back up as the user playfully ticks and unticks the box to see if your software is paying attention. More fun!!!
Related to forum thread: https://www.telerik.com/forums/fiddler-no-longer-capturing-web-service-requests-in-net We found that .NET Core projects use WinHTTP instead of WinINET. As Fiddler registers itself only as a proxy for WinINET, traffic from these projects do not show up in Fiddler. While a manual workaround exits, it would be good if there was at least an option to register Fiddler as a proxy for WinHTTP as well. On a side note: We've seen that even node.js traffic does not show in Fiddler as well. We've not researched the cause as it wasn't critical to us at that time. But, it could also be due to the same reasons.

You should delete the routes from IE connection settings and any mods your application makes to the registry when the user clicks on the X in Fiddler. It seems like when you exit using File > Exit it does a "clean" exit. Please make this consistent.
When checking for updates I noticed that when I have 'offer upgrade to Beta versions' enabled, the response shows the latest version as 4.6.20171.14978 [03/22/2017]. I disabled checking for beta versions and it returned the latest released version ( 5.0.20181.14850 [03/20/2018] ). Not sure if this is intentional or a bug. Just thought I'd point it out.
Today, we can only choose one font and stick to it globally on app. Would be nice if the menus, lists, trees, etc. kept the Windows default font and only the inspectors, etc. have a custom font. In other words: I would like to use a cool monospaced font for input/output, inspection, etc. but a normal font for lists, menus, labels, etc.
Once I got Fiddler on the mac to run, I kept seeing the message in the Terminal that it couldn't find settings.txt file, once I created the settings.txt file I did get another message which I will include in another idea Here is the exact bash message: /Fiddler/settings.txt: No such file or directory iPhone Not sure if the iPhone piece is relevant or not.
The Fiddler 4 installer thinks there's something still installed in c:\Program Files (x86)\Fiddler2, but that folder no longer exists and the old version of Fiddler is no longer listed in "Programs and Features". Error message when I run the new version: "Machine-wide Progress Telerik Fiddler installation has been found at C:\Program Files (x86)\Fiddler2\ . Please, use that one or uninstall it before starting the per user Fiddler installation." The offending folder does not now exist. "c:\Program Files (x86)\Entity Framework Tools" exists. "c:\Program Files (x86)\Google" exists. There is nothing between them. They are adjacent in the directory listing. Resolution: 1. I uninstalled Fiddler 4. 2. I installed Fiddler2 (installer file version 126.96.36.199) from an old installer that, by luck, I happen not to have deleted. 3. I uninstalled Filddler2 manually. 4. I installed Fiddler 4 again. Now Filddler 4 runs. But if I hadn't still had the old installer lingering in my downloads folder, I would have been out of luck. Please fix.
