WDIO Firefox Profile Service
You want to run your Firefox browser with a specific extension or need to set couple preferences? Selenium allows you to use a profile for the Firefox browser by passing this profile as base64 string to the firefox_profile property in your desired capabilities. This requires to build that profile and convert it into base64. This service for the wdio testrunner takes the work of compiling the profile out of your hand and let's you define your desired options comfortable from the wdio.conf.js file.
To find all possible options just open about:config in your Firefox browser or go to mozillaZine website to find the whole documentation about each setting. In Addition to that you can define compiled (as *.xpi) Firefox extensions that should get installed before the test starts.

Installation

The easiest way is to keep @wdio/firefox-profile-service as a devDependency in your package.json, via:
npm install @wdio/firefox-profile-service --save-dev

Instructions on how to install WebdriverIO can be found here.

Configuration

Setup your profile by adding the firefox-profile service to your service list. Then define your settings in the firefoxProfile property like this:
// wdio.conf.js
exports.config
    // ...
    services: [
        ['firefox-profile', {
            extensions: [
                '/path/to/extensionA.xpi', // path to .xpi file
                '/path/to/extensionB' // or path to unpacked Firefox extension
            ],
            'xpinstall.signatures.required': false,
            'browser.startup.homepage': 'https://webdriver.io',
            legacy: true // only use for firefox <= 55
        }]
    ],
    // ...
};

If you have built a custom Firefox extension that you want to install in the browser make sure to set 'xpinstall.signatures.required': false as profile flag since Firefox extensions are required to be signed by Mozilla.
To use custom unsigned extensions you will also need to use Firefox Developer Edition since the regular Firefox 48 and newer do not allow this.

Options

    ],
    // ...
};
```
  • Manual HTTP Proxy:
```js
// wdio.conf.js
exports.config
    // ...
    services: [
        ['firefox-profile', {
            proxy: {
                proxyType: 'manual',
                httpProxy: '127.0.0.1:8080'
