How do i specify which Firefox Profile to use thru perl based Selenium script?

Post by rishabhg on Wed Nov 20, 2013 7:58 pm

I am using the following lines in a perl script to open a browser using Selenium. :

    my $sel = Test::WWW::Selenium->new( host => "localhost",
                                    port => 4444,
                                    browser => "*firefox",
                                    browser_url => "https://$ARGV[0]/" );

Here in browser => "*firefox",  how do i specify a specific firefox Profile that should be opened. I've already tried :
    browser => "*firefox C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe -P \"Selenium\" "


    browser => " C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe -P \"Selenium\" ". 

I also tired creating a Firefox shortcut with its target as

    C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe -P "Selenium"

and then giving the path of this shortcut as the browser. I havent got anything to work so far.
Am i doing something wrong here. Or is there any other way to accomplish this?
