How to 'allow' silverlight plugin?

on Wed Sep 24, 2014 6:07 pm
I get this toolbar popup appearing at the start of my tests which requires human interaction to click the 'allow' / 'remember' button (although it never remembers it when using webdriver).



But, how do I avoid such a message appearing each time?
I am currently using Firefox.

My thoughts are:
I should create a preference somehow to enable/allow silverlight to run (??but what is the command?)
Code:
profile  = webdriver.FirefoxProfile()
profile.set_preference("  ---SOMETHING HERE MAYBE?? --- ")
driver = webdriver.Firefox(firefox_profile=profile)

I have also been looking in the about:config in Firefox to look for clues (maybe one is set to False when it should be true) but nothing with the name of 'silverlight' shows up there.

Hi, I also struggled with the Silverlight plugin in Firefox.

I ended up creating a new Firefox profile (naming it silverlightProfile). I'm unable to post a link for the instructions I followed on how to create a Firefox profile, but I followed the instructions on the 1st google search result for "toolsqa custom firefox profile".

I then launched Firefox with this new profile and set the Silverlight plugin to "Always Activate."

In my test, I called the silverlightProfile:

ProfilesIni profile = new ProfilesIni();
FirefoxProfile myprofile = profile.getProfile("silverlightProfile");
driver = new FirefoxDriver(myprofile);

When the test ran, I no longer got the silverlight popup asking if I wanted to allow.

I hope that helps.
