I am getting a cannot focus element error when running my test in chrome and edge in FF it works fine. I have tried posted resolutions but to no avail. I am not sure what to do about this. Hoping someone out there can help. Thanks in advance.

driver.findElement(By.linkText("Add")).click();
List <WebElement> groups = new Select(driver.findElement(By.xpath("/html/body/div[1]/section/div/article/form/fieldset/div[3]/div[2]/div/div/div[1]/select"))).getOptions();
groups
.get(3).click();
JavascriptExecutor js = (JavascriptExecutor)driver;
WebElement groupRole = driver.findElement(By.xpath("/html/body/div[1]/section/div/article/form/fieldset/div[3]/div[2]/div/div/div[2]/label[2]"));
js
.executeScript("arguments[0].click();", groupRole);
driver
.findElement(By.xpath("/html/body/div[1]/section/div/article/form/fieldset/div[3]/div[2]/div/div/div[2]/label[2]")).sendKeys(" ");
// Check to see if the user should be made active and set active checkbox to on if value in file is "active"
if (activeFlag.equals("active"))
{
driver
.findElement(By.xpath("/html/body/div[1]/section/div/article/form/fieldset/div[3]/div[1]/div[1]/div/div/input")).sendKeys(" ");
}
// If the user role is to be admin then set the Site role to Administrator
if (userLevel.equals("admin"))
{
List <WebElement> roles = new Select(driver.findElement(By.name("community_role"))).getOptions();
roles
.get(1).click();
}

Here is another stack trace. I am actually getting the error when trying to click the submit button not the active flag. I had already done the actions steps which I will also provide.

Code:

        Actions actions = new Actions(driver);
actions
.moveToElement(driver.findElement(By.xpath("/html/body/div[1]/section/div/article/form/input[2]")));
actions
.click();
// actions.sendKeys(" ");
actions
.build().perform();

sendkeys method is the problem as per the stack trace.

at org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebElement.sendKeys(RemoteWebElement.java:121)

Please try Actions class to first focus on the element then send required keys.

Actions actions = new Actions(driver);
actions
.moveToElement(element);
actions
.click();
actions
.sendKeys("SOME DATA");
actions
.build().perform();
