    "Unable to obtain stable firefox connection error" in Selenium WebDriver

    The error:

    unable to obtain stable firefox connection in 60 seconds (

    When I've received this error, it has been due to Firefox updating itself to a new version and Selenium WebDriver not having been updated to support this new version.

    The solution:

    gem update selenium-webdriver

    If you use Bundler, do:

    bundle update selenium-webdriver

    Still doesn't work? Check with your firefox/selenium-webdriver version combination to see if there are any updates about it.

    Meanwhile, you can get dev updates for the selenium-webdriver gem from:

    Last resort: downgrade Firefox.
