comment How to fix intermittent typing problems with send_keys?
It's still failing with my new method of clicking outside the find area instead of sending an ESCAPE or TAB. It failed differently this time. Instead of repeating part of the word, it just stopped typing. See: i.imgur.com/0GA3u.png -- the text should have been 'Hashcode:9AA5F1085C9E8E8FBCB3D4B9E7A6E47F'. It's still quite intermittent: 1 in 1,150 searches.

Sam, that's a good idea. I will put that on my to do list. Do you know if there's some kind of debug logging I could enable to get more info when it happens?

It's always that same textbox. There is auto-complete in that box, but it should only be popping up when there's a pause in typing, which there isn't for send_keys. And it's odd that the other 113 searches are fine. If it were autocomplete interfering, I'd expect it to happen a lot more.

Sam, that's a good thought, but unfortunately it isn't possible. I have it running inside a dedicated VM, and kick off my Python test manager + nose + Selenium framework from Scheduled Tasks, so there's literally only the Firefox windows open. I guess it's possible that it's a Windows Update popup? But those only show in the tray; I don't think they steal focus.

Looks awesome, but I can't afford the $9900 license. :-)

Second question: I see I can record navigation through an HTTP proxy. Would that let me record textarea input for my search? Or does JMeter only do simple static content loading?

I have heard about Jmeter but not tried it yet. Can it do operations that are behind a login? Our product is an HTTPS site that users have to login to.
