For example, I have an application "", to access this site I have installed browsec VPN in firefox then I can see the application content - accessing the site without vpn I get an error of "Your IP Address has been blocked..bla bla" Now I want to test some UI of that site through Selenium Webdriver, but when I try to access the site via selenium webdriver I get same error of IP blocked since the vpn is already installed on firefox, but webdriver doesn't bother the VPN - that's my question how can I access the such applications through Selenium webdriver?

You have to load the extension using firefox profiles in WebDriver. The path to extension file is usually here C:\Users\administrator\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ew0u966b.default-1507268891903\extensions

WebDriver driver = null;

FirefoxProfile firefoxProfile = new FirefoxProfile();
File addonpath = new File("path of addon/extension (.xpi file)");

DesiredCapabilities capabilities = DesiredCapabilities.firefox();
capabilities.setCapability(FirefoxDriver.PROFILE, profile);

driver = new FirefoxDriver(capabilities);



For chrome see below link

To start the extension, the following should work.

Every extension will have a unique id which can be used to open the extension in the browser. When you install browsec plugin, you will get a url like this indicating the id. moz-extension://f1b30486-cd88-4319-bbb5-d5e387103414/congratulations.html I am not sure about how to obtain this id in any other way or whether it will be same for different installations. I have asked a question in SO for the same - Get add-on id of extensions in Firefox

Replacing congratulations.html with popup.html should open the extension in the browser. You can then treat this like a normal webpage and automate it using selenium WebDriver. After you start the extension in this way, you can then load the url of the application under test and continue.
