Solve problem computer is hang when starting Firefox

8 Jun

I had this problem after updating Firefox from last year, I tried many various ways such as scanning virus, removing and setup a new version of Firefox but everything is not successful.

Today I need to run Selenium IDE on Firefox, I am going to remove and setup Windows but just searching from Internet and saw a good solution from Firefox support. I am happy now because my Firefox can start well.

I use Windows XP, so this is solution I used

Configure Windows Firewall to allow Firefox access to the Internet

Windows provides a built-in firewall, which controls how programs access the Internet. If Windows Firewall doesn’t permit Firefox to make connections, Firefox generates a “Server not found” error when you try to browse to websites.

 Windows XP
Checking for Windows XP Firewall

To see if you’re running Windows Firewall:
1. Click on the Windows Start button, and select Control Panel. The Control panel window will appear.
2. Click on the Security Center link. The Security Center will appear.
3. If the Firewall header says ON, you are running Windows Firewall.
Configuring Windows XP Firewall

If you’re running Windows Firewall and having connection problems in Firefox:
1. Click on the Windows Start button, and select Control Panel. The Control panel window will appear.
2. Click on the Security Center link. The Security Center will appear.
3. If the Firewall header says ON, you are running Windows Firewall.
4. Ensure that Don’t allow exceptions is not selected.
5. Click to select the Exceptions tab.
6. Find Mozilla Firefox (or firefox.exe) in the list of programs. If it is there, click to select it. If not, skip the next step.
7. With Mozilla Firefox selected, click the Delete button. Confirm that you want to delete the entry.
8. Click the Add Program… button.
9. In the Add a Program window, click the Browse… button.
10. Navigate to the Firefox program directory (e.g. C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\) and double-click on firefox.exe.
11. Click the OK button to close the Add a Program window.
12. Click the OK button to close the Windows Firewall Settings window.


If you are using another version OS, please refer to this link

Have fun with your Firefox ^^

We will then see how our tests use element locators such as css, xpath, DOM to find elements on the page.

Once all the tests have been created we will have a look at how we can speed up the execution of our tests using Selenium Grid.

A beginner’s guide to writing Selenium tests using different aspects of the Framework to give you confidence in your web application

Test your web applications with multiple browsers using the Selenium Framework to ensure the quality of web applications
