What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Run java -jar lib/JsTestDriver-1.3.1.jar --browser "/usr/bin/firefox"  --port 4224

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
It is expected that Firefox opens up, and captures the output.  Instead ... nothing happens.  In fact, I can give --browser yabbadabba, and get the exact same thing (and no, I don't have a yabbadabba browser, or any other app for that matter).

However, running this does start up the test server ... it just doesn't open/auto capture the browser.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
1.3.1 on Ubuntu Linux 9.10 (Karmic)

It turns out this is a documentation bug, not a real bug.

This page:
says that all you need to do is include a --browser argument, but it lies (lying to brand new users on the very first js-test-driver page they ever see ... classy ;-) ).

For anyone else with this problem, you also need to include a --captureConsole argument.

Actually, it is a regression. I just haven't had a moment to fix it.
