Which version of Firefox is compatible with Selenium?
I'm trying to run automated Python tests from the cmd prompt. Every time I try, I get an error message stating "Failed to start new browser session: Error while launching browser." I've updated everything - Java version 1.7.0_25, selenium library 2.9.1... I've installed older versions of Firefox back to 14.0, and nothing works. I need some help, and I don't understand any of the solutions I find online. I don't write the tests myself - we outsource to a programmer who writes everything to Github, I pull the files and run the tests.
I got a new computer - went from Windows XP to 7. Everything worked on the old computer, but I couldn't upgrade from Firefox 3.6 without the tests failing. Nothing works on the new computer, and I don't believe I should have to revert back to version 3.6 to get the tests to run.
Any help would be appreciated.
I already have the Selenium web driver installed, and the most recent version of java. I had to go back to 3.6, and worked my way up from there. Version 12.0 is the most recent version that works for me.Read this answer in context 👍 0

Either try updating your Java libraries or add the web driver for selenium
