There is a mismatch in your need to call geckodriver.exe
More details in my answer below.

@letslearn, it seems like you have tried using chromedriver.exe for performing the test. Below line is what you have in your code.

// System.setProperty("",

// "C:\\Users\\everybody\\Desktop\\selenium\\library\\chromedriver.exe");

For some strange reason, you have commented out these two lines above. system.setProperty() function is highly essential line if you want to run your test and it is used to chose a particular browser on which the test will be performed...

Moreover, in your entire code, you have wanted to perform the test on Firefox (Gecko), but you've set property for chromedriver.exe as it is evident from above. 


Download geckodriver.exe from and provide the path to gecko driver in the above line of code..

Let me know if it works for you :) Happy learning :)

Try using this:

WebElement id = driver.findElement("identifierId"));
WebElement button = driver.findElement(By.className("CwaK9"));;
WebElement password = driver.findElement("password"));
WebElement button1 = driver.findElement(By.className("CwaK9"));;

This worked fine for me. Hope it helps you too!
