While running automation in webdriver standalone server, i get this exception randomly. Once it comes, I killed all java process . So what is the solution for this exception ? Why it comes randomly ?

Unfortunately as far as i know, all have suggested to use latest version of selenium jar or come compatible firefox version depending on the selenium version or they have said to check if that port is on use (though it won't!) or reboot system.Few have suggested to uninstall firefox version and reinstall it. Any permanent solution or any idea why it comes?

You can resolve it with a simple machine reboot. I recommend you to this first before everything else.


OS Windows 7

selenium-server version : 2.35.0
