Hi william@nutt.io,

Great news ! The problem you encountered previously is now fixed in our latest version of Bardeen - 2.45.

Please try updating your version of Bardeen and let me know if you’re still facing the same issue.

Here’s how you can update your version of Bardeen:

  1. Open the Google Chrome browser.
  2. Navigate to your extensions page by either:
    ◦ Opening a new tab and typing chrome://extensions into the address bar.
    ◦ Clicking on the three-dot icon at the top right corner of the browser, selecting “More tools,” and then “Extensions”.
  3. Enable “Developer mode” by toggling the switch in the top-right corner of the extensions page.
  4. Once Developer mode is enabled, additional options will appear on the page. Look for the Bardeen extension, Click Details and click the “Update” button.
    This will force Chrome to download and install any available updates for Bardeen.

Amazing, thank you. However, the update seems to have come with a new bug: For some automation triggered by right-click, they appear to complete all actions, but they show as endlessly running in Bardeen. If I remove the right-click trigger, the issue goes away. Let me know if you need a recording.

Best,

No problem. In this recording you’ll see the automation continue running after all actions complete.

  • Here’s the automation.
  • Removing the right-click trigger resolves the issue.

Thanks so much,
