I am going through the Selenium tutorials on www.guru99.com. See: https://www.guru99.com/locators-in-selenium-ide.html
There is one thing which I am not understanding. I am not sure if it is due to me not following the instruction correctly or if something is wrong with the tutorial itself. The instruction in the webpage above, Step 2 says the following: Launch Selenium IDE and enter "id=email" in the Target box. Click the Find button and notice that the "Email or Phone" text box becomes highlighted with yellow and bordered with green, meaning, Selenium IDE was able to locate that element correctly.
When I launched Selenium IDE whilst running this page in Firefox Developer Edition, it asked me to create a new project which I did. Then I started the recording. Whilst in recording mode I then entered "id=email" in the Target box and clicked Find. Nothing happened. The text box is not highlighted whatsoever with yellow and bordered with green.
Is the instruction above outdated or wrong? When I used the Inspector from Firefox Developer Edition to view the text box, it is just fine as I could see the 'id=email' in the Inspector. So I don't understand why I would need to launch IDE and look for "id=email" in the Target box. Just using the Inspector seems sufficient.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Kind regards, David
