The Web recorder hangs when switching Actions on the toolbar during recording
Diagnosis: This occurs when the recorder needs the context from a previous Action in order to determine what to record. By default, "Reset Context for each action" in the Recording options is enabled. This option resets the HTML context, so that a contextless function is always recorded in the beginning of the Action. It also clears the cache and resets the user-names and passwords (enabled by default).
Clear the "Reset Context for each action" option
Clear the "Reset Context for each action" option in the Recording options -> Internet Protocol:Advanced section.
