Problem

When performing a test on Microsoft Edge, it fails with the following timeout error: Session aborted after 5 minutes due to user inactivity.

Solution

Currently, a bug with Selenium Edge driver causes the Edge browser to never report a site as loaded. This bug affects the Selenium driver.get command.

The workaround is to use the driver.executeScript command instead of driver.get as, per follows:

driver.executeScript("window.open('"+ "https://your.website.url/" +"','_top');");
