Behat/Sahi and Firefox 5 on Mac OS X

I had problems getting Sahi to work properly with Firefox 5 when using it with Behat to perform in-browser testing on Mac OS X.

Moving the Firefox 5 .app to a subfolder in the /Applications directory, and installing Firefox 3 at the root level of /Applications still led to Sahi firing up Firefox 5.

If you have this problem, the solution is to edit the SAHI_ROOT/userdata/config/browser_types.xml file, and put the FULL path to the browser in thedirective – eg:

open -n -a /Applications/Firefox3/ have moved my Firefox 3 to a subfolder, and returned 5 to the root of Applications).

This works beautifully.
