I think I am confused by a slight ambiguity in what you are saying in your statement: ""Currently we do not have the ability in the framework to connect to an already opened browser. It is mandatory that it open a new browser in order to control it. This feature is currently available in Test Studio."
As I read it, it appears you are saying its not possible to to connect to an open browser, then in the next sentence you are saying it can be done because there is a feature in Test Studio to do it. Are you, in fact, talking about 2 different situations: Firstly, it is possible to work with in an open browser and repeatedly run some, or all the steps of a given test during the development/debugging of a test. Secondly, it is not possible to have a test open a browser and then have subsequent tests run in the same browser?
One question about the instructions in your last post, what do you mean by: must have recording toolbar attached? how do you attach a recording tool bar?
