Originally reported on Google Code with ID 7642

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Save the below sample script to a file (Say, demo.rb) and run the sample script.

require "selenium-webdriver"
driver = Selenium::WebDriver.for :firefox
driver.navigate.to "http://google.com"
element = driver.find_element(:name, 'q')
element.send_keys "Hello WebDriver!"
element.submit
puts driver.title
driver.quit

2. Observe the console/terminal/command prompt logs.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

*Expected output*
The FF browser instance should launch and after that it should hit the URL "http://google.com"

*Actual Result*
The FF browser instance is launching and it is not hitting the url due to which the
further execution of script is failing.

Selenium version: Selenium-Webdriver(2.42.0)
OS: Windows 8 (32 bit)
Browser: Firefox 
Browser version: 32.0

*Note*
Ruby Bersion : 2.0.0
Please provide any additional information below. A sample reduced test
case, or a public URL that demonstrates the problem will intrigue our merry
band of Open Source developers far more than nothing at all: they'll be far
more likely to look at your problem if you make it easy for them!

Is there any workaround for this issue until the next version of Selenium is updated?
I tried making the changes to install.rdf per this commit <https://code.google.com/p/selenium/source/detail?r=76358a4ddc82>
which enables the add-on but Firefox stops responding after launching.

My workaround was to install FirefoxPortable 31.0 and point to the binary using in Java:

desiredCapabilities.setCapability(FirefoxDriver.BINARY, "<your_binary_file_including_path>");

Works fine, despite I have to turn of all other Firefox 32.0 Instances while running
the selenium tests on my local machine ;-)

Please release the new version. Firefox 32 is now stable and that bug causes *a lot*
of failures on various CI systems.

I worked around this by putting firefox 30 back on the machines, instead of staying
blocked.

Hello All,

What I have observed about this problem is, whenever you are using the latest version
of Selenium Webdriver along with the latest version of Firefox, this issue is manifesting.

Let me know your observations. Here everyone who faced this issue, please observe the
version of Selenium Webdriver gem and firefox.
