How to handle the situation when the browser crashes while running the selenium code? | Selenium Forum
Sundaram Iyer Posted on 06/09/2021

While browsing through the products on amazon, the browser automatically closed(or crashed)... so how can we handle crash of a browser using selenium code?

web browser that the selenium automation code invokes crashes while selecting an item from the cart. so for example, we like a shirt and we select the size from the drop down and that's when the browser crashes...


I tried to catch "WebDriverException" but it did not do anything. So any idea in general what we can do in selenium if the browser crashes while performing automation?


Thanks again

You get NotConnected exception when browser crashes

Just check that exception first

You can catch that exception and report
