I am not sure if this is the right place for asking this. Any time I start a selenium test I get two windows. One with the command which are right now been performed and the second one with the test itself. My problem is that in this second window I do not have any of my plugins. I would like to have firebug for example.

A second problem is that with the the google toolbar installed, in the first window I always get a dialog asking if I want it or not. Doesn't matter what I click this will appear again.

How can I avoid these two problems?

Thanks in advance.

Are you able to upgrade to selenium 2 webdriver? With webdriver you don't have multiple windows to worry about anymore.

You can use firebug by providing a firefoxprofile which has the plugin installed.
