In Selenium 3.0 beta version they have added some changes i.e Firefox browser will work only using Mozilla's Gecko driver which is downloads from GitHub.
download geckodriver from github

Let's write the script to run test scripts in Firefox Browser using Gecko drives

How to Di it?

1)Download Gecko driver from GitHub and add it to System.setProperty().
System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver", "E:/Selenium_tutorials/geckodriver.exe");
2)Same driver like driver=new FireffoxDriver();


package com.keyword.driverscript;

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import org.testng.annotations.BeforeTest;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;

public class ScrollBar {
 public static WebDriver driver;
 public static String baseUrl;
 public void setup(){
  System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver", "F:\\Java_Applications\\Zip Files\\geckodriver.exe");
  driver = new FirefoxDriver();

 public void pageScroll(){
  driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
  driver.findElement(By.linkText("Selenium Tutorials")).click();

Once you run the script Right click on Script and Run as - TestNG Test then it will open Firefox browser and execute the script using gecko driver ,Like this we can open Firefox browser using Gecko drives like for Chrome,IE browsers.
