I am using the SeleniumBackedWebdriver API in my current project, which supports both Selenium RC and WebDriver APIs. The Advanced User Interactions API like mouseUp(), mouseDown(), runScript() are not working in IE8 and IE9: I get a Javascript error. It works well in Firefox and Google Chrome.

  1. Is the Advanced User Interactions API supposed to work in IE 8 and IE 9? and
  2. If so, how might I go about debugging the problems I see?

It might help to provide a code fragment and the specific Javascript error. – user246 Jun 1 '12 at 14:05
Some more information would be helpful. Which language bindings? Can you show us the code that is not working for you? – Ardesco Apr 22 '13 at 7:42

Try to use Selenium 2.14 server jar. I am facing the same issue and for me it worked when I used Selenium 2.14 server jar in compilation, building and execution.

-1 for suggesting the OP uses a drastically out of date version of Selenium that doesn't even use the IEDriverServer.exe. If you are still using 2.14 you really shouldn't be. – Ardesco Apr 22 '13 at 7:41
