    The amount of times I am restarting fiddler and adding the same URLs or processes to filter out is getting a bit mundane. I have Outlook, Skype running which all clutter up the list.  Also IE is running.  I just want to focus on a single URL within a session.

    Is there a filter list where I can save the filters to and easily switch on switch off this?

    Hello,

    Normally Fiddler persists filters on restart. Is this not working for you? 

    Or is it that you are frequently switching between a number of different filters and want these saved?

    Hi Tsviatko,

    It doesn't seem to be persisting for me.

    I am adding filters using Right-Click then Filter Now context menu.  I don't really want to see anything to/from www.telerik.com for example.  The same with the Outlook process.  I have to readd these everytime.  Would be good if I didn't.  Unless there is a different way to do this.

    Regards

    Paul

    Hello,

    Sorry for the late response.

    By default Fiddler will try saving your filters in your MyDocuments\Fiddler2\Filters\LastSession.ffx . Is it possible that Fiddler does not have write access to this location?

    You can also save/load custom filter sets from the Actions button in the Filters tab. Does that work for you?

    Hi Tsviatko ,

    My LastSession.ffx has not been changed since 10th June 2016.  In that time I have ran fiddler many times. 

    Fiddler having write access?  Would that not be my user not having access?  I've tried running as administrator and my normal account.

    As for the Filters tab, I am not sure what is going on here.  I have the following Hide the following Hosts:

    www.telerik.com; nexus.officeapps.live.com; a.company-target.com;

    But yet it still shows them when I click on the Actions->Run Filterset now.

    Thanks

    Paul

    Hi,

    That's weird. Could you move the ffx file to a different location? Maybe another program locked it. Let's see whether Fiddler would be able to create it again.
