I am having trouble clicking or interacting with some page elements. They seem like normal DOM objects. just buttons here is the code for one

<div style="clear: both; text-align: right">

 <img id="nextstep" class="nextbtn" height="21" alt="" src="/edit/images/author/next.png">


After clicking a button as "Upload file" another pop-up window was opened. My task is to upload a file at the pop-up window and back to the original window. I'll try to explain

I start a webDriver for

www.test.com (<- made up name for example)

I logged in

Click upload a file button

After this click, our site redirects to www.foo.com instead of the above I am using the same driver created earlier and I try to interact with the buttons on the post upload page


It never finds these buttons but they are there in firebug and appear normal.

You may try to switch to the window again after the redirect. Save your window handle:

String myWindowHandle = driver.getWindowHandle();

redirect to the page you want and then call switchTo using the window handle:

driver.switchTo().window(myWindowHandle );

DIf your page contains any frame,It may be possible that you are not in the correct frame after the redirect.
