>                 Key: WTR-322
>                 URL: http://jira.openqa.org/browse/WTR-322
>             Project: Watir
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: FireWatir
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.2
>         Environment: Cygwin under Windows
>            Reporter: Tobias Haagen Michaelsen
>             Fix For: Soon
>         Attachments: firewatir_cygwin.patch
> When running Ruby under Cygwin, the firewatir gem can not open the Firefox browser because the RUBY_PLATFORM is not matched.
> Implementation:
> Since Cygwin is an environment inside Windows, the code for resolving the path to the binaries is essentially the same, but the resulting path can not be "run" since Cygwin expects a unix-style path, so we need to use the cygstart app to call it.
