FF8 doesn't work

FF8 doesn't work

I've setup WPT-Server, version 2.5, with some agents running IE 8, Chrome and Firefox. IE and Chrome worked out of the box. Firefox 8 gets the work, the browser opens but in adress line I just see "Go To Web Site" and nothing happens (blank page) til timeout. WPT-Server shows "The test completed but there were no successful results." as test-result.

Firefox 7 works in the same scenario. Any ideas?

One other question:
Do I need the fourth line in wptdriver.ini ("browser=Chrome,Firefox")? It was in wptdriver.ini.sample of version 2.5 but I don't really understand its purpose.



  label='Agent 1'

  label='Internet Explorer 8'




exe=""C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe""
options='--load-extension="%WPTDIR%\extension" --user-data-dir="%PROFILE%" --new-window --no-proxy-server --no-first-run --no-default-browser-check --enable-experimental-extension-apis'

exe="C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
options='-profile "%PROFILE%" -no-remote'

RE: FF8 doesn't work
We just fixed Firefox 8 support and I'll see if I can get a release out. The Mozilla team made it so users have to manually accept all of the extensions when the browser is upgraded (or first launched) so out extension stopped loading.

The Chrome,Firefox should have been in locations.ini, not wptdriver.ini (if it was in the sample it was a mistake that I'll fix). The browser=X line in wptdriver.ini is used to specify the default browser to use if one isn't specified from the server (in the case where only a single browser is configured). If you have multiple browsers in locations.ini (browser=Chrome,Firefox) then it will never get invoked because the server will specify it explicitly.

RE: FF8 doesn't work

thanks for the quick answer.

In wptdriver.ini.sample is just the line "browser=chrome" so I thought I have to list all the browsers my agent/wptdriver suports here like in locations.ini. So the indication of a default-browser makes sense, thanks for clarification.
