Setting a specific browser profile for the playback of Functional HTML tests

When you play back a Functional HTML test in a browser by using the Web UI method, the test is played back either in the temporary profile or the default profile of the browser. You can set a specific user profile, which includes the extensions and settings to use for the test, for the browser in HCL OneTest UI to play back the Functional HTML test.
