Recording is not working for specific web app

When recording a custom web application in Chrome, Firefox or Edge, no steps are added after the navigate step. There are elements listed in the DOM tree, but no steps can be added for these from the Advanced Recording tools. Highlighting is also not working. 

If recording the actions in IE these are captured and listed in the test. This recorded test can be executed against the other browsers.

During the investigation we established that the application under test uses a very outdated version of the JavaScript library "Prototype.js": released in September 2008. This version of the library provides non-standard implementation of native JavaScript APIs which overrides the implementation already built-in in all modern browsers. The latest version of "Prototype.js" is 1.7.3 which was released in September 2015 fixes most of the non-standard implementations but could still be considered as an outdated library. The problems in our extension are mainly caused by the custom non-standard implementation of the toJSON method of Date, Array, Object and String which is used internally by JSON.stringify.
