Firefox browser driver issue. Not loading. I'm getting the below Error: typeError: addon is null

0 votes

Below is my code.

public class firstTest {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver", "E:\\SOFTWARE\\drivers\\geckodriver.exe");
        WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
        driver.get("http://www.google.com");
    }
}

While executing above code I am getting following error :

The error is pretty straight forward. Its because of the below outdated applications:

Build info: version: '2.48.2', revision: '41bccdd', time: '2015-10-09 19:59:12'
System info: host: 'xxx', ip: '192.168.43.34', os.name: 'Windows 8.1', os.arch: 'amd64', os.version: '6.3', java.version: '1.8.0_40'
Driver info: driver.version: FirefoxDriver

Upgrade the following:

  • JDK version
  • Selenium JARS
  • Download the latest Gecko Driver
  • Upgrade your Firefox browser version to the latest

It should work fine once these are done. Let me know what happens.
