  1. Whenever you are ready to record, click the Replay extension icon in the browser toolbar, then select “Record this website.” Note: The Replay Browser must be installed before recording. You can also install the browser from the extension.
  2. The first time you record a new site, the browser will prompt you to allow opening the browser. Select the checkbox to prevent this step next time, then click “Open Replay”.
