How do we set the Firefox profile for WebDriverJS (Selenium for Node.js)?
If you have homebrew installed, you can run the following:
# install the browser $ brew cask install firefox # install the driver $ brew install geckodriver
Building your driver
Now you want to start building your driver. See how it’s done here.
Before instantiating the driver, you want to set the profile in the Firefox options:
const firefox = require('selenium-webdriver/firefox'); const options = new firefox.Options(); // replace `/path/to/profile` options.setProfile('/path/to/profile');
Now let’s update the builder so WebDriverJS launches Firefox based on the specified profile:
To confirm that the profile is correct, you can check the path if you go to
const driver = builder.build(); driver.get('about:support');
