Hello Arun,

I was trying to install IDE and Web Driver jars in my new pc but since FF is now upgraded & IDE is also upgraded to 2.9.1. Web driver download version available is also 3.6.0 which is confusing me while adding in eclipse. Can you pls provide steps or help in installing/doing the configuration plssss.

@Ritanjali - Install older version of Firefox 47.0.1 and install Selenium WebDriver version 2.53.1.
