I am using Selenium Webdriver with Firefox (although the same behaviour occurs in IE and Chrome).

I have been using driver.navigate().to().(""); and it was working fine for me.

I am passing in other URLs using driver.navigate().to().("https://www.google.com");

The browser is loading the previously given URL not the one passed in.

There are two alternative methods of performing the task you require;




navigate().to() Navigate().GoToUrl and get() do exactly the same thing so it really comes down to which works for you and fits your coding preferences.
