switch to new window not working in IE11 windows 7 in selenium

Q: switch to new window not working in IE11 windows 7 in selenium

Hi

when I am manually clicking on a link it opens a new tab but while I am doing automation its opening as a new window but in console its showing that it has not switched to the new window and is not able to perform any other operation on the new window
And according to the script it should click on a link, switch the new window and perform operations on the new window.
IE VERSION IS IE-11 Windows7. Here is my code,

Set<String> handles = driver.getWindowHandles();
System.out.println(handles);
Iterator<String> itr = handles.iterator();
Object firstHandle = itr.next();
Object lastHandle = firstHandle;
while (itr.hasNext()) {
lastHandle = itr.next();
}
driver.switchTo().window(lastHandle.toString());
I am not able to switch to the new window .

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Issue in IE11:

when parent window had a alert triggered, that makes the child window lose focus and go behind

Scenerio:

There is a button in parent page (domain A) and on click of the button Popup window (Domain B) will open and child window will communicate back to parent window. when parent window had a alert triggered, that makes the child window lose focus and go behind
only in IE11 browser.

IE edge and other browsers we can see the popup window on top of the parent window. 


is there any fix to retain popup window on top of parent window until user closes the popup(child) window.

Not sure if this question belong in this part of the forum.
So recently our company has just installed a mandatory update that broke Internet Explorer in many ways and Selenium WebDriver is one of them. For more info, I'm using Selenium in C# and we are NOT allowed to roll back any mandatory update (only adjust parts
of GPL but we have to have compelling evidence). The last time we installed any update was on 04/22/2019, Last Windows 10 Security update that we got was KB4493478 and KB4493441)
So after the update happens, Selenium Sendkeys runs extremely slow on the website (1 letter per 1-2 seconds). Before that, we ran the same exact code on the same exact website and it ran fine. I tried looking up some additional help but to no avail at this
point. Any idea may help!
Thanks a lot!

1. I have two JSP files like "one.jsp" and "two.jsp" 
2. I have two muti select boxes like ACCOUNTS and FUCNTIONS In one.jsp. These two multi select boxes are getting loaded from two.jsp by using the frame like below.
var lsCombo = parent.MainFrame.document.dataframe.accountSelectBoxName.options;
lsCombo[0] = new Option("key","value");
lsCombo[1] = new Option("key","value");

var lsCombo = parent.MainFrame.document.dataframe.fucntionSelectBoxName.options;

lsCombo[1] = new Option("key","value");

3. Now those two box values are loaded. 
4. I am trying to retreive the option values using javascript like below,

fucntionSelectBoxName.options[0].value - Now I am able to retreive the value
accountSelectBoxName.options[0].value - Now I can't retreive the value and getting error like permission denied.

5. Here, I understood that, only lastly loaded frame is an active mode and which is pointing to respective parent frame.
But first loaded frames are not in an active mode and which are not pointing to respective parent frame.

I loaded IE11 preview a few days ago and it has worked flawlessly. Today I ran Windows Update and after this IE11 would not open - I just got an error message saying IE could not operate. It took a number of closing of the error dialogue box to get the error boxes tto stop appearing. I have gone back to IE10 and have no problems again. I tried reinstalling 11 and it worked fine again - until I ran Windows Update again same problem happened. I am sure there is some conflict with an update or more - KB2879017 looks a likely culprit.

Grateful for any advice on how to get IE11 to co-exist with Windows Update. Thanks.

I'm running W7 Professional 64bit. Entirely stable system - no problems.

Hi all,
I have a deployment of IE11 that I'm pushing out in one of our Task Sequences. Everything goes smoothly, but I've noticed some very odd behaviour on certain computers which have had this build.
When clicking a link that's set to open in a new tab, IE11 simply opens a blank page. The URL shows as blank, and the page never loads in. Additionally, functionality is completely lost on web front-end systems. This mainly impacts "buttons" on
the site, which would ordinarily open a new window/tab.
Having researched the problem I'm not sure if this is currently solvable, though any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Dusty.

Hi

Joined forums specifically for help on a friend's Toshiba laptop on which I am typing this post. It has Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit installed and Internet Explorer 11.

The problem began after installing the latest cumulative update for IE11 but I have found by going back to previous cumulative updates that the problem first presents itself after installing KB3175443.

(My friend neglected updates for some time. Along the way to find root of the problem I've uninstalled/reinstalled IE11 and then installed earlier cumulative updates to find the culprit)

The problem is that when IE11 is opened all looks ok, homepage loads fine, but then another window opens which is blank except for Internet Explorer 11 at the top (no X to close or anything). Moving the cursor over the blank window, the cursor changes to a pointing finger in places, but being blank I have no idea what is being offered to click on. Because this window is active, sitting on top of the normal IE11 window, I can do nothing with IE11. The only way out is to open Task Manager and use end task to close IE11.

I'm fairly certain it is virtually the exact same problem as was posted here except that in my case the window that pops up is blank.

(Am I right that the linked thread is marked as solved despite receiving no replies? Does that mean that member solved it but never posted the solution, or am I missing something?)

I completely removed IE11 from my computer...no reason except I want to use Firefox and want the clutter removed.

This appears to be the only unwanted result of having removed IE11.

Apparently there was a setting stored in the IE11 software that held the information to make Win Explorer open each request to open a new tab do so in the same window.

I believe there has to be a key in the registry that can be set to enable opening tabs in the same window but obviously I don't know what it is so I am in hopes that someone here can identify the appropriate key and tell me what its value needs to be to enable this function. I have no problem with editing the registry.

I have already tried to set the "open in same window option" in the control panel folder options applet but no joy.

Thanks very much if you can help me with this issue.

Hello. Some time ago, the "Switch between windows" icon on the taskbar went missing, so I looked up on Google on how to bring it back. The thing is, ALL the solutions I found (including the ones in this forum) are for the 3D function of switching between windows... Something that doesn't work on Vista Home Basic, which I happen to have. So now I have a useless icon that doesn't work since I'm not pointing it to the proper address.

The answers I found point the icon to "C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe dwmapi #105", which is to activate 3D flipping; again, I have Vista Home Basic so this doesn't work. The question is: What is the proper address/dwmapi function/shell command to call Switch Between Windows in my Vista version?

Thanks in advance.

Open Windows Explorer, then go to the following location:

(In the folder titled Quick Launch, there should be a shortcut that reads "switch between Windows"

Right click the shortcut

Choose Copy.

Next, paste the file in the EXACT same location in your USER folder.

*In addition you can paste the file onto the desktop and then drag it onto the Quick Launch Toolbar.*

The problem with this were that he had a asus P5W DH Deluxe motherboard and we could not find the button to call up the windows boot menu.

Hi all,

I'm getting issue in starting selenium. Actually my thread class has selenium.start() in run() method. So when I'm using below lines of code,

//some another class
class someclass{

ScrapeThread nidleThread = new ScrapeThread("nidleThread");
Thread scraper = new Thread(niidleThread);
scraper.start()
}

as thread.start() method internally calls run() method, so in run() method of thread class only first two three lines of code are getting executed and when it executes comes to selenium.start() and executes, then selenium is giving issue in starting means I can see only two commands getting executed in command history of selenium remote and then getting struck there.

But when i m using below code and directly calling the run() method of my thread class

//some another class
class someclass{
ScrapeThread nidleThread = new ScrapeThread("nidleThread");
nidleThread.run();
}
here it's working properly and I'm getting proper output as I want.

What could be the issue in starting selenium when I'm executing the thread in normal way i.e. by calling scrapper.start() method?

//in thread class
run(){
selenium = new DefaultSelenium(config.getHost(), Integer.parseInt(config.getPort()), config.getBrowser(), config.getUrl());

I auto hide my taskbar
I have a window that I size from the top of my window to the bottom.
I use "switch user"
When I return to my user the window size has reduced in height from the bottom of the screen the width of an un hid taskbar.

the attached pic is showing the monitor from top to bottom. As one can see the window is not full height but shortened the size of the taskbar.



Sorry if this is an exsisting thread.

I have the latest updates. I've run SFC, Chkdsk, Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, & Hitman Pro. They all found some unwanted stuff but after re-running all of them again, they come up clean. I'm thinking something is corrupt somewhere.

Followed all of Franks steps in the pinned post at top of page re fresh install and updating of Win7 SP1. Updated no worries but now IE11 will open home page but then instantly "stops working".

I'm not sure when this started exactly because it seemed to affect only certain sites, then it got progressively worse from there. I have Firefox installed and it is working fine. I first noticed the problem in IE when watching a video on liveleak.com. There's a button at the bottom of the video pages. Clicking on it loads comments. It uses javascript. That stopped working.

About a week later videos on break.com stopped working. They just show up as a black box. At this point I started noticing all the functionality I was missing on other sites, comparing how they worked in Firefox. In fact, registering here was impossible in IE because the reCaptcha didn't show up.

I've checked all settings in IE and everything is correct. I'm the only one that uses this computer. It WAS working and it just stopped. I didn't change anything. I disabled antivirus and firewall. That didn't help.

I tried regsvr32 jscript.dll and regsvr32 jscript9.dll, which returned correct responses. Didn't help.

I ran sfc /scannow, which did find and correct errors. Didn't help.

I reinstalled IE11, flash, Java, cleared cache, temp files, java cache, everything else I could find that people suggested. No luck

Lacking anything else to try I uninstalled IE11 and every windows update back to July. I know it was working back then. That brought be back to IE8. JavaScript worked fine. I then updated to IE9 with no other windows updates. Again, JavaScript worked fine.

The 'Computer' window (the one that shows the hard drives on the system etc.) always loads on startup on my Windows 7 PC. I've tried switching off various startup, programs in System Configuration to see if this solves the problem but with no luck so far. Any advice would be appreciated!

Install CodeStuff Starter.
Run it then click on All Sections.

Hi all,

Whenever I have two seperate apps in the windows 7 taskbar and decide to close one of them, the focus doesnt automatically switch to the one remaining window, instead I have to physically click on it to bring the focus to it. Its really annoying and was wondering if there was a workaround?

Thanks

Interesting. Does the problem occur even after a restart?

There may be a program grabbing the attention away.

When did this start happening?

Have you changed anything in your system lately?
