Unreachable browser exception comes when the session is closed or browser is not launched but web-driver is trying to access the browser or some elements on it.

Let's make it simple.

  1. Set web driver property first.

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "C:\\chromedriver\\chromedriver.exe"); driver = new ChromeDriver();

  1. Make sure you have the latest or compatible (Chrome, Gecko or IE)driver.exe file.

  2. If the issue remains the same then, re start Eclipse or any IDE you are using. Update project and re run the test.

This has been asked in the Stack Overflow community as well. See

The answer posted by user albciff, adding a ProxySelector, worked for me.

The reason why this happens,

When the test does not get executed within 3 minutes(Default timing), then it will throw the exception of browser startup failure.

Solution:- Change the way to create RemoteWebDriver.

    ClientConfig config = ClientConfig.defaultConfig().connectionTimeout(Duration.ofMinutes(20))
.readTimeout(Duration.ofMinutes(20)); // I change this 3 minute(Default) to 20 minutes.

WebDriver remoteWebDriver = RemoteWebDriver.builder().oneOf(caps).address(gridUrl).config(config).build(); // now you can use this remoteWebDriver.
