Selenium WebDriver.get(url) does not open the URL

0

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.common.exceptions import TimeoutException
from selenium.webdriver.support.ui import WebDriverWait # available since 2.4.0
import time
# Create a new instance of the Firefox driver
driver
= webdriver.Firefox()
# go to the google home page
driver
.get("http://www.google.com")

This opens a Firefox window but does not open a url.

  1. I have a proxy server(but the address bar does not show the passed url)
  2. I have two Firefox profiles.

Can 1 or 2 be an issue? if yes, then how can I resolve it?

It is a defect of Selenium.

I have the same problem in Ubuntu 12.04 behind the proxy.

Problem is in incorrect processing proxy exclusions. Default Ubuntu exclusions are located in no_proxy environment variable:

no_proxy=localhost,127.0.0.0/8

But it seems that /8 mask doesn’t work for selenium. To workaround the problem it is enough to change no_proxy to the following:

no_proxy=localhost,127.0.0.1

Removing proxy settings before running python script also helps:

http_proxy= python script.py
