NAME

Firefox::Marionette::Capabilities - Represents Firefox Capabilities retrieved using the Marionette protocol

VERSION

Version 0.78

SYNOPSIS

    use Firefox::Marionette();
    use v5.10;

    my $firefox = Firefox::Marionette->new( capabilities => Firefox::Marionette::Capabilities->new( accept_insecure_certs => 0 ) );
    if ($firefox->capabilities->accept_insecure_certs() {
        say "Browser will now ignore certificate failures";
    }

DESCRIPTION

This module handles the implementation of Firefox Capabilities using the Marionette protocol

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

new

accepts a hash as a parameter. Allowed keys are below;

  • accept_insecure_certs - Indicates whether untrusted and self-signed TLS certificates are implicitly trusted on navigation for the duration of the session. Allowed values are 1 or 0. Default is 0.

  • page_load_strategy - defines the page load strategy to use for the duration of the session. Setting a page load strategy will cause navigation to be "eager", waiting for the interactive document ready state; "normal" (the default), waiting for the complete ready state; or "none", which will return immediately after starting navigation.

  • proxy - describes the proxy setup for the upcoming browser session.

  • timeouts - describes the timeouts imposed on certain session operations.

  • moz_webdriver_click - a boolean value to indicate which kind of interactability checks to run when performing a click or sending keys to an elements. For Firefoxen prior to version 58.0 some legacy code as imported from an older version of FirefoxDriver was in use.

    With Firefox 58 the interactability checks as required by the WebDriver specification are enabled by default. This means geckodriver will additionally check if an element is obscured by another when clicking, and if an element is focusable for sending keys.

    Because of this change in behaviour, we are aware that some extra errors could be returned. In most cases the test in question might have to be updated so it's conform with the new checks. But if the problem is located in geckodriver, then please raise an issue in the issue tracker.

    To temporarily disable the WebDriver conformant checks use 0 as value for this capability.

    Please note that this capability exists only temporarily, and that it will be removed once the interactability checks have been stabilized.

  • moz_accessibility_checks - run a11y checks when clicking elements. Allowed values are 1 or 0. Default is 0.

  • moz_headless - the browser should be started with the -headless option. moz_headless is only supported in Firefox 56+

  • moz_use_non_spec_compliant_pointer_origin - a boolean value to indicate how the pointer origin for an action command will be calculated.

    With Firefox 59 the calculation will be based on the requirements by the WebDriver specification. This means that the pointer origin is no longer computed based on the top and left position of the referenced element, but on the in-view center point.

    To temporarily disable the WebDriver conformant behavior use 0 as value for this capability.

    Please note that this capability exists only temporarily, and that it will be removed once all Selenium bindings can handle the new behavior.

  • strict_file_interactability - a boolean value to indicate if interactability checks will be applied to <input type=file>. Allowed values are 1 or 0. Default is 0.

  • unhandled_prompt_behavior - defines what firefox should do on encountering a user prompt. There are a range of allowed values, including "dismiss", "accept", "dismiss and notify", "accept and notify" and "ignore".

This method returns a new capabilities object.

enumerate

This method returns a list of strings describing the capabilities that this version of Firefox supports.

accept_insecure_certs

indicates whether untrusted and self-signed TLS certificates are implicitly trusted on navigation for the duration of the session.

page_load_strategy

returns the page load strategy to use for the duration of the session. Setting a page load strategy will cause navigation to be "eager", waiting for the interactive document ready state; "normal" (the default), waiting for the complete ready state; or "none", which will return immediately after starting navigation.

timeouts

returns the current timeouts object

proxy

returns the current proxy object

browser_version

returns the version of firefox

platform_name

returns the operating system name. For example 'linux', 'darwin' or 'windows_nt'.

rotatable

does this version of firefox have a rotatable screen such as Android Fennec.

platform_version

returns the operation system version. For example '4.14.11-300.fc27.x86_64', '17.3.0' or '10.0'

moz_profile

returns the directory that contains the browsers profile

moz_build_id

returns the Firefox BuildId

strict_file_interactability

returns the current value of strictFileInteractability

unhandled_prompt_behavior

returns the current value of unhandledPromptBehavior.

set_window_rect

returns true if Firefox fully supports setWindowRect, otherwise it returns false.

moz_shutdown_timeout

returns the value of moz:shutdownTimeout (aka the value of config toolkit.asyncshutdown.crash_timeout)

moz_webdriver_click

returns a boolean value to indicate which kind of interactability checks to run when performing a click or sending keys to an elements. For Firefoxen prior to version 58.0 some legacy code as imported from an older version of FirefoxDriver was in use.

With Firefox 58 the interactability checks as required by the WebDriver specification are enabled by default. This means geckodriver will additionally check if an element is obscured by another when clicking, and if an element is focusable for sending keys.

To temporarily disable the WebDriver conformant checks use 0 as value for this capability.

Please note that this capability exists only temporarily, and that it will be removed once the interactability checks have been stabilized.

moz_process_id

returns the process id belonging to the browser

browser_name

returns the browsers name. For example 'firefox'

moz_headless

returns whether the browser is running in headless mode

moz_accessibility_checks

returns the current accessibility (a11y) value

moz_use_non_spec_compliant_pointer_origin

returns a boolean value to indicate how the pointer origin for an action command will be calculated.

With Firefox 59 the calculation will be based on the requirements by the WebDriver specification. This means that the pointer origin is no longer computed based on the top and left position of the referenced element, but on the in-view center point.

To temporarily disable the WebDriver conformant behavior use 0 as value for this capability.
