We are running Selenium regression tests against our existing code base, and certain screens in our web app use pop-ups for intermediate steps.
Currently we use the commands in the test:
// force new window to open at this point - so we can select it later
...which works most of the time. Occasionally the test will fail on the waitForPopUp() line with
com.thoughtworks.selenium.SeleniumException: Permission denied
Can anyone suggest a better, more reliable method? Also, we primarily run these tests on IE6 and 7.
