I’m trying to be hyperbolic today.
So I’ve been spinning my wheels trying to get Firefox 3 to work with Selenium. But why not use Selenium with IE or a custom browser or Firefox with a custom profile?
And Selenium doesn’t work with *custom. Not Selenium 1.0.1, not on Vista. Sadly, there’s nothing in the trace about what’s going on.
Granted, it’s an open source project, and jhuggins is sick of working on it, and nobody has stepped up. But things like popup blockers and ssl-cert blockers are a real issue. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. But the way might have to be to use COM. Which means WATI*.
It looks like the IE8 issue is because Vista needs you to run as adminstrator.
