Trouble with creating an FirefoxDriver object.

on Tue Aug 23, 2011 11:13 pm
When I try to make a new FirefoxDriver object ( WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(); ) I get this Message:


Exception in thread "main" org.openqa.selenium.UnsupportedCommandException: Bad request

Build info: version: '2.4.0', revision: '13337', time: '2011-08-12 09:58:05'
System info: os.name: 'Windows XP', os.arch: 'amd64', os.version: '5.2', java.version: '1.6.0_21'

hi,

use this

For Firefox : // Instantiate the Firefox browser with profile.
FirefoxProfile firefoxProfile = new FirefoxProfile();
WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(firefoxProfile);


Best of luck

Fixed the Problem with setting the localhost to 127.0.0.1 in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts.

Changing the etc host file works

Was getting error: "Exception in thread "main" org.openqa.selenium.UnsupportedCommandException: Bad request" While trying to setup webdriver.

Using the below code was not required to solve this problem:
FirefoxProfile firefoxProfile = new FirefoxProfile();

WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(firefoxProfile);

Changing the host file at: "C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\" solved the problem.
