Selenium and Firefox 3

Those of you who've tried to run the selenium test suite using Firefox 3 as the browser have probably found that Firefox hangs trying to create the temporary profile. You could do some tedious mucking about with selenium.browser="*custom /usr/lib/firefox/firefox -no-remote -P selenium", manually configure the proxy, etc. However, it turns out there's a simpler solution.

Please note this is nothing to do with Selenium IDE, if you're having problems with that in conjunction with Firefox 3 this won't help.
