Early this week, I installed a new gem called capybara-firebug. This is a very useful gems. I have been wanting to enable firebug when running the test. Previously, I can pause my web test but I cannot inspect the web element as firebug is not enable. This capybara-firebug gems solve my problem and is very helpful to debug my web test.

2. require 'capybara/firebug' in env.rb
