comment Click() command in Webdriver API not working
Which Browser? If IE it could be because the physical mouse pointer is over the browser when the test is running (There are issues with IE picking up the physical mouse pointer location and using that instead of the pointer location set by selenium). Is it really a clickable button? Can you show us some HTML, that would help diagnose the issue. Are you expecting a JavaScript event to be fired on click? Possible the event isn't firing when a click occurs. Basically we need more info.

comment When to start testing a solo project
Adding tests after bugs have occured is the same as shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted... You should be adding tests before you write your code, google TDD it's a ball ache at first but the benefits far outweigh the negatives! You will end up with much more stable software and you will waste much less time trying to diagnose hard to find issues later on in the project. TDD results in a slower start, but means you fly along in the middle and at the end whilst others are bogged down trying to work out wtf is going on. TDD = better design!

comment Cannot locate button with changing ID in Selenium
You need to provide the full page HTML if you want somebody to give you an accurate XPATH. Without knowing the structure of the full page and which id's are static and which are dynamic it is very hard to give an accurate answer. Generally speaking work your way up the dom to a static ID and start your XPATH there.

comment What is Selenium's default timeout for page loading?
A default timeout of 30 Seconds is the Selenium RC API, not the WebDriver one.

comment What is the sense of having a monkey tester execute your test script?
I disagree, I am talking about the way the vast majority of companies are structured. Testers and support staff have very different skill sets that are not necessarily interchangeable. It sounds like you have deeper ingrained problems than the ones you have shared so far...

comment Is the source code required when using Selenium-RC with Grails?
You cannot do whitebox testing with Selenium. Selenium drives a browser to interact with a web page, is has no concept of the code layer behind the website (e.g. PHP, ASP, Ruby, etc).

comment moveToElement function not working on IE when browser is minimized or not active using Selenium Webdriver
Not sure what the question is here... Yes your assertion is correct WebDriver doesn't work properly when the browser is minimised. This is because it uses native events to click on the browser rather than just emulating clicks with JavaScript so if it isn't there to click on the clicks don't work.
