I struggled kind with the same problem yesterday. I don't know about your rails version but I'm on rails 5 and to fix this I had to delete the require 'rspec/autorun' from spec_helper.rb.
So the head of the file looks like this:
# This file is copied to spec/ when you run 'rails generate rspec:install' ENV["RAILS_ENV"] ||= 'test' require File.expand_path("../../config/environment", __FILE__) require 'rspec/rails' require 'capybara'
I also modified my gemfile and changed the requirements for rspec and capybara
group :development, :test do gem 'rspec-rails', '~> 3.5' end group :test do gem 'capybara', '~> 2.4' end
then run bundler again in your terminal
In the create_spec.rb file be aware of any typos! I had to fix also some typos I had to get this running. e.g. I had
click_button "Create Todo List"
click_button "Create Todo list"
I hope this can help

I'm using rails 5 too but there is no 'rspec/autorun' on spec_helper.rb
Did the >3.5 version changes and checked for typo indeed, after fixing the typos this works:
describe "Creating todo lists" do it "redirects to the todolist index page on success" do visit "/todo_lists" click_link "New Todo List" expect(page).to have_content("New Todo List")
fill_in "Title", with: "My todo list" fill_in "Description", with: "This is what I'm doing today." click_button "Create Todo list" expect(page).to have_content("My todo list") end
