I'm trying to click the delete button while reading a gmail email that is open.

I think it must be the way I locate this element. This element says style="-moz-user-select: none and I wonder is it this that makes it not selectable/clickable.

I tried using click, actions class, and javascriptexecutor, but selenium didn't click the element even though it took and processed the command without error.

It looks like you are "clicking" a div. Try a different selector, ideally for a input/button/link. Those usually have "event listeners" registered to them, whereas divs (typically) do not.

So a Selenium .click() would say "yeah I clicked" and not care what happens after (so long as the element can be found). A JSE .click() will do the same (.click doesn't have a return value in JavaScript).

  • Thanks. I fixed it by using a different way to delete the gmail email, but the test only passes on selenium 3.6 but fails on the latest selenium 3.11 version. I'm using the latest firefox browser for both test runs also. In selenium 3.11 (latest version) I see this error org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException: Unable to convert: {actions=[org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Sequence@5ae76500]} – seleniumappiumnewbie Apr 10 '18 at 21:59
