How to handle the Firefox 48 security popup message "You are about to log in to the site ..." with selenium webdriver
Often in test automation you have to test a website that has a proxy protection. Mostly this authentication is worked around by adding the credentials in the URL as following:
In FireFox 48 they have added an extra protection layer to warn the user that they are logging in to a protected URL:
You are about to log in to the site "(...)" with the username "(...)"
This new warning message will break all automation going to a protected domain.
Silencing the error message in Firefox
In Firefox you have have to manually add the following configuration
network.http.phishy-userpass-length. You can add it by going to the URL
about:config, right click the page and select "add" > "Integer". Fill in the above configuration with value
However, in test automation, a new clean browser is opened without any of your configurations to the browser. So these settings need to be defined before the browser starts.
Add the following code to your
LapisLazuli.Start do # If BROWSER is NIL, Lapis Lazuli will default to Firefox if !ENV['BROWSER'] || ENV['BROWSER'] == 'firefox' # Get Selenium to create a profile object require 'selenium-webdriver' profile = Selenium::WebDriver::Firefox::Profile.new profile['network.http.phishy-userpass-length'] = 255 browser :firefox, :profile => profile end end
require 'selenium-webdriver' profile = Selenium::WebDriver::Firefox::Profile.new profile['network.http.phishy-userpass-length'] = 255 WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(profile);
