Resolve issue when device stops accepting commands
Sometimes when running a long test Chrome the cache fills up and causes some commands not to work properly.
You need to start the test with a clean cache, and if necessary also clear the cache midway into the test.
Clearing the Cache Manually
In some devices you can clear chrome browser cache through the device settings:
- Go to Settings -> Application Manager
- Go to Chrome -> under Cache click the “Clear cache" button
- Click on “Force Stop"
In some devices you can clear chrome browser cache through the chrome browser itself:
- From the Chrome browser click on the Menu
- Go to Settings
- Go to Privacy & Security
- Click on Clear browsing data
Use the Browser Clean Command to Clear the Cache
You can use also the browser clean command which will re-install the latest Chrome on the device, providing a brand new browser.
However, when run for the first time, the browser gives an "accept terms" pop-up that needs to be clicked. This can be done manually or as part of your test.
