Im using WebDriver and Python to automate a website. I have a suite of tests and sometimes running into the following problem.
Test no.1 = Login to home page, navigate to Account page, perform some activity, Logout Test no.2 = Login to home page, navigate to Deposit page, perform some activity, Logout
Problem: If Test no.1 has a catastrophic failure in Account page, then when Test no.2 kicks off, it logins to the account page instead of the home page.
Question: How do I make sure that every test starts with a clean session, i.e. login always goes to the home page?
Clearing the browser cookies and cache doesn't help. I have in my Test Teardown, the Close All Browsers keyword which clears the browser cache and closes the browsers.
