Time for action – installing Selenium IDE - Selenium

Now that we understand what Selenium IDE is, it is a good time to install it. At the end of these steps, you will have successfully installed Selenium IDE on to your computer:

  1. Go to http://seleniumhq.org/download/.

  2. Click on the download link for Selenium IDE.
    You may see a message appear saying Firefox Prevented this site (seleniumhq.org) from asking you to install software on your computer. If you do, click the Allow button.

  3. A Firefox prompt will appear, as shown in the following screen shot:

  7. Once the countdown has finished on the Install button, it will become active; click it. This will now install Selenium IDE and formatters as Firefox Add-ons.

  8. Once the install process is complete it will ask you to restart Firefox. Click the Restart Now button. Firefox will close and then re-open. If you have anything open in another browser it might be worth saving your work, as Firefox will try to go back to its original state but this cannot be guaranteed.
