I have a problem with my tests in Selenium WebDriver. The Click event not always works when a program tries to click on button. In one test everything is ok, in others it is not.

Every test starts on one page. First, the user has to choose an option from a select component and after that, the user clicks on a button.

I want to know why one time everything is ok, and when I run tests a second time it is not?

Here is the source code of finding and clicking the button:

public void clickContinueBtn() {    

    webElement = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//div[@class='btn magenta_s']/a/span"));

    webElement.click(); 

}

Often it occurs mainly because of Browser compatibility (Mostly on firefox). So try to use "WebElement.sendKeys(Keys.ENTER);" code in place of "webElement.click(); "

Or, you can try using  Action Class:

WebElement element = driver.findElement("yourElement");

        Actions builder = new Actions(driver);

        builder.moveToElement(element).click(element);

        builder.perform();

Hope this helps!
