Hey @Savan, 

Have you tried with setting up page load strategy in your selenium capabilities?

You can stop a page from loading by setting the pageLoadStrategy capability to none

Hope this helps!

Hi Savan,

Setting the pageLoadStrategy capability to none. Then wait for an element to be present and call window.stop to stop the loading:

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.desired_capabilities import DesiredCapabilities
from selenium.webdriver.support.ui import WebDriverWait
from selenium.webdriver.support import expected_conditions as EC
from selenium.webdriver.common.by import By

capa = DesiredCapabilities.CHROME
capa["pageLoadStrategy"] = "none"

driver = webdriver.Chrome(desired_capabilities=capa)
wait = WebDriverWait(driver, 20)

driver.get('http://xyz.com/')

wait.until(EC.presence_of_element_located((By.CSS_SELECTOR, '#h-top-questions')))

driver.execute_script("window.stop();")


Thanks,hope my answer will help .
