How do I export test cases in the latest version of Selenium IDE? There is no export option in the file menu.

  • What Firefox version do you use? Selenium IDE does not work anymore in newer versions of Firefox.

  • @Patrick, Selenium IDE's making a comeback and is now supported by Firefox and Chrome (though I haven't tried it yet) - OP seems to be using the Chrome version.

This feature is not available in Selenium IDE new version. Try Katalon Recorder if you really need that function. Among Selenium-IDE alike tools, at this moment it is the only one with code export.

Chrome extension

Firefox extension

The following languages and frameworks are supported:

  • C# (MSTest and NUnit)
  • Java (TestNG and JUnit)
  • Ruby (RSpec)
  • Python (unittest)
  • AppDynamics
  • Groovy (Katalon Studio)
  • Robot Framework
  • XML

The new selenium IDE does not have code export yet.

The solution is to use the Katalon (3rd party, closed source) Selenium IDE. As of today, it is the only new IDE with code export, see the Selenium IDE comparison here.


The new Selenium IDE opens within a browser window, so the dropdown you're looking at is just a Chrome browser dropdown. From what I can see - there is no way of exporting tests from this version.

I'd suggest that you download Firefox ESR (Extended Support Release) and install the old Selenium IDE plug-in. Open your tests there and then export them like the good ol' days.
