unable to obtain stable firefox connection in 60 seconds (127.0.0.1:7055)

Getting the following error when running rspec tests



unable to obtain stable firefox connection in 60 seconds (127.0.0.1:7055) in rails



Using latest ruby (1.9.2) and firefox (6.0)

Using rspec-rails, capybara and several other gems, but they don't seem to be a problem. These tests run fine in another environment (linux).

Answer

[Update - this can (was for me) still be a fix for this issue in 2015 |mdurrant|]

I came across this problem lately.

You should upgrade to capybara v1.0.1 to have a correct selenium webdriver.

To be sure I added:

gem 'selenium-webdriver', '2.25.0'

in my Gemfile.

Important note:
The selenium-webdriver gem is updated, and a new version released, for every subsequent version of Firefox. Presently, version 2.25.0 is needed to support Firefox 15.
