I try to get started with selenium (downloaded the current version today) and copied their example which opens a browser and performs a google search.

However, the program hangs forever in the 1st line WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();.

I have Firefox 13 installed.

Thread dump:

Thread [main]

  Thread.sleep(long) line: not available [native method] [local variables unavailable]

  FirefoxBinary.sleep(long) line: 218

  FirefoxBinary.clean(FirefoxProfile, File) line: 234

  NewProfileExtensionConnection.start() line: 76

  FirefoxDriver.startClient() line: 200

  FirefoxDriver(RemoteWebDriver).(CommandExecutor, Capabilities) line: 94

  FirefoxDriver.(FirefoxBinary, FirefoxProfile) line: 147

  FirefoxDriver.() line: 85

  Test.main(String[]) line: 24

These cases occur usually when the Firefox browser & Selenium are incompatible with each other.

You should try either of the two things: 

update Selenium to the latest one and/or downgrade Firefox.

 

You can find the release notes for Selenium WebDriver which gives detail about what are the new features added and what bugs are found etc, in the release.  https://github.com/prabhpreetk/selenium.git
