I have installed the Firefox extension imacros, but how do I get it to work?


I have Firefox 17.0.1 installed on Windows XP. I have installed the Firefox extension imacros and can find it in my list of extensions (Tools/addons/extensions). I have read through the forum and tutorials on http://www.iopus.com/imacros/support/. All the demo's show the imacros window with an embedded webpage, it shows how to record simple macros, etc, but I can not figure how to get the imacros window open in the first place. Can some one tell me how to get this extension to work? Help me get the window open please.

Thanks in advance

Looks that you need to open an iMacros sidebar.
