2. Launch Firefox

3. Start mozrepl in Firefox by going to the menu: "Tools" -> "MozRepl" -> "Start" You may want to tick the "Activate on startup" item.

If tests still fail, especially t/50-click.t and 51-mech-submit.t , this might be because you use the NoScript Mozilla extension and have it blocking Javascript for file:// URLs. While this is good, the tests need Javascript enabled.
