Selenium-ruby uses the it's own custom profile for firefox. Is there
any way to use the normal profile instead of Selenium-Ruby's custom
profile ?

Thanks in advance

Hi Punit,

Yes. We can able to set the predefined profile.

When start the Selenium RC --> mention ur profile details like this

>java -jar selenium-server.jar -firefoxProfileTemplate "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\
Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\4sdo3eff.default"


Thanks,

Hi Punit,

To know the current profile

run > %APPDATA%\Mozilla\

it gives the path of your current Firefox profile

Thanks
