How to handle "Time out receiving message from the renderer" in chrome driver?
I am new to selenium, I'm facing "Time out receiving message from the renderer" in chrome browser while running test with selenium 2.41 and chrome 2.9x. I have tried many tests to reproduce the issue, but it occurs inconsistently. Is there any specific reasons for this issue?.
It looks like this issue has been logged as a bug for Selenium but has not yet been fixed: Issue 402: webdriver hangs on page load and does not give control back for script execution
They are looking for a specific repro, maybe you could help them out by posting your specific repro?
One person reported that removing any driver timeout options from their code solved the problem:
//driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(2000, TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS); //driver.manage().timeouts().pageLoadTimeout(40, TimeUnit.SECONDS); //driver.manage().timeouts().setScriptTimeout(60, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
