What am I doing wrong here?

  • You have an escape character in your driver path. Try: ` "c:\\\\geckodriver-v0.24.0-win64\\geckodriver.exe"` instead. If this fixes the problem, I will make it into an answer. – Brian Feb 26 at 21:02
  • no, this did not help – Samantha Feb 26 at 21:05
  • Check the versions of both Firefox and Gecko. – Brian Feb 26 at 21:06
  • How do I do that? – Samantha Feb 26 at 21:06
  • Second post here. Also, if there is an exception being thrown, please add that to this post (the stack trace). – Brian Feb 26 at 21:08

Your code cannot work, you need to call

System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver","c:\\geckodriver-v0.24.0-win64\\geckodriver.exe");

Before

public WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();

Because the new FirefoxDriver creates a new instance and tries to find the geckodriver somewhere in your path, unless give it a specific path first. After this it will start the test code.

I would use the TestNG [setUp()][1] method to configure the driver before the test:

public class FirstTextNGFile {

 public WebDriver driver;

 @BeforeClass
 public void setUp() {
   System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver","c:\\geckodriver-v0.24.0-win64\\geckodriver.exe");
   driver = new FirefoxDriver()
 }

 @Test
 public void verifyHomepageTitle() {
   // test code
 }
}
