Insights and outlooks on software development


On Selenium and Safari on Mac

Monday, April 13, 2009 by Thomas L

I'm playing somewhat with Selenium today, but I had a problem running the tests on the Safari (3.2.1) browser on my Mac (10.5.6). For some reason, the browser hanged in the beginning of the script when I tried to start a new browser session, see the screen shot below.

Selenium Remote Control v1.0-beta-2 [2571], with Core v1.0-beta-2 [2330]

The solution is as simple as it is annoying. If you uncheck "Block Pop-Up Windows" in the Safari menu, things will start working.

nice post... big help for me. other recommendations were to run the selenium server as sudo. works, but a kludge. This is much better.
