0 votes
from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.common.exceptions import TimeoutException
from selenium.webdriver.support.ui import WebDriverWait 

driver = webdriver.Firefox()
driver.get("http://www.google.com")

This opens a Firefox window but does not open the given URL. I am using the proxy server but the address bar does not show the URL and I have two Firefox profiles. I this the problem for not opening the URL?

It is a Selenium defect. Problem is in incorrect proxy processing. Default Ubuntu exclusions are located in a no_proxy environment variable:

no_proxy=localhost,127.0.0.0/8

But /8 mask doesn't work for selenium. In order to solve this problem we need to change no_proxy as follows:

no_proxy=localhost,127.0.0.1

You can also remove proxy settings before executing the python script:

http_proxy=python script.py
