getCurrentUrl() Failed on WebDriver Java API for Edge


Why getCurrentUrl() method is not returning the correct URL with Edge WebDriver?



If you are using the Edge WebDriver MicrosoftWebDriver.exe, you may notice that the getCurrentUrl() method fails to return the correct URL after a Web form is submitted by calling sendKeys() as shown below:

1. Run the same test program,, as shown in the last tutorial with Edge WebDriver:

C:\fyicenter> java -classpath .;\fyicenter\selenium\java\client-combined-3.141.59.jar;\
   \fyicenter\selenium\java\libs\commons-exec-1.3.jar \
   FormSubmit Edge
[13:46:14.744] - Listening on http://localhost:19714/
1:46:16 PM org.openqa.selenium.remote.ProtocolHandshake createSession
INFO: Detected dialect: OSS
Test Case - Submit a search:
   Actual Value:
   Expected Value: ..Q=selenium...
   Test Result: Failed

Notice that the getCurrentUrl() did not return the correct URL that contains the query string after calling sendKeys().

2. Look at the Edge browser window, you see the correct URL,
