After upgrading my VS 2012 Update 1 environment with Update 2 CTP4 - I am no longer able to run Coded UI test in Firefox browser. As part of my automation test execution, it launches the browser, but never goto specified URL. Exception shows in VS's Test Console as:
Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITest.Extension.UITestException: Failed to start up socket within 45000

Note: Prior to installing Update 2 CTP4, same test was working in Firefox.

An installer for “Selenium components for Coded UI cross browser testing” installs the selenium driver version 2.29.1 that had issue as described in this post.

Install the newer version of Selenium driver, I tried 2.31.1 -- and that resolved this issue.

In Win 7 64 environment, I had to copy Selenium driver component under:
