    Default Re: prevent selenium from loading plugins?

    for anyone with same issue the only solution i have found was to gointo firefox profile manager with cmd
    firefox -no-remote -ProfileManager
    --on linux system"might be different on micrapsoft
    and set up a new profile and kill all the extensions lan packs EVERYTHING! its a messy solution but it worked
