Firefox (GeckoDriver)

Before using Firefox with Geckodriver the Selenium folder containing the Geckodriver must be put into the PATH environment variable.

Internet Explorer

IE 11

For best results testing Selenium with IE 11 we recommend the following settings:

  • Enable Protected Mode for all Security zones
  • Ensure that Enhanced Protected Mode in Advanced Settings of Off (which is the IE default)

We have found that the Selenium support for IE11 has not been as reliable as for IE9 and IE10. Results may vary depending on the specific details of your test environment. See this Stackoverflow question for more background on some of the known issues with Selenium and IE.
