Attaching WatiN to Firefox


Using WatiN, Im facing some issues with

FireFox FF = new FireFox ("http://www.google.com");,

FireFox always crashes at this point and VS report :


Unable to read data from the transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host


any idea why this is happening ?

Win7 32Bit - VS2008 - .NET 3.5 - Firefox 3.5 - WatiN-


The jssh that comes with Watin CTP has an issue with FireFox 3.5.

I downloaded <a href="http://ulti-swat.wikispaces.com/" rel="nofollow">Swat</a> (Simple Web Automation Toolkit - sourceforge project) and it came with a newer version of jssh which is for FF 3.5 and now Watin starts FF successfully..


Doesn't WatiN use COM Interop under the covers? You probably need to run your process as a 32 bit process (i.e. kick off 32 bit NUnit).
