Hi,

I tried to remote control firefox with the Selenium WebDriver and Java fio testing purposes. This ended in some instances of crashed or otherwise leftover running instances of the geckodriver.

I restarted my computer (Win 10) and started Firefox (no remote software started this time).

And now, whenever I start Firefox, it says it is remotely controlled (Robot icon / Orange bar).

How can I start Firefox in un-controlled mode again (so that ie: I can login into google again)?

(Addons = none) Thanks for help.

You can create a new profile as a quick test to see if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.
