Firefox - Modal dialog present - Website timesout after clicking ok Button RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having a problem with Firefox.  Whenever there's a popup alert window, I keep getting the error "OpenQA.Selenium.UnhandledAlertException: Modal dialog present". 

    The workaround I found to prevent from getting this error is the following.  The popup message appears after clicking the "Save" Button on a page, instead of declaring that save button as a "HtmlInputButton", I declare it as a "WinControl" and that stops the Exception from happening.

    The problem I'm having now is that, after clicking the OK Button on the Modal Dialog popup, the website just hangs and the script timesout because it's waiting for the site that never stops loading.  If I stop my script, then the websites loads right away.

    Anyone else have this problem?  Know of a workaround?
