SilkTest Question 40: Did you have any problem with FireFox and SilkTest 8.0?

This interview question is good to verify if candidate for automation QA Engineer position really worked with automation testing tool mention above. Not long ago Borland (BORL) has acknowledged the following defect in the SilkTest 8.0: the FireFox browser may suddenly crash during test script execution with the following mournful message "error loading C:\Program Files\Segue\SilkTest\nshlprfox.dll". It means if you examined web applications with 8.0 version of automated testing tool you definitely experienced capture issue with Firefox browser.

Unfortunately I do not have Silk Test 2006 installed right now and in my case I got a few times dll error with 8.0 and Firefox, but we use Silk only for IE testing.
