IE11 starts with about:blank

IE11 starts with about:blank
When IE11 starts on the test agent just fine (wptdriver ver 291) but it doesn't use the URL to be tested. It always starts with about:blank. The command that appears in the wptdriver display is:

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" about:blank

And the server then reports the test timed out waiting for the browser to start. The tests run fine for Chrome and Firefox. Thanks.

RE: IE11 starts with about:blank
My guess is that it is a 64-bit version of Windows and the path is pointing to the 64-bit IE. It needs to point to the 32-bit one in Program Files x86

RE: IE11 starts with about:blank
I'm now getting the same timeout behavior from Firefox as from IE11. Chrome works fine. The wptdriver window on the test agent shows that the URL being used is about:blank.html, or using the webpagetest API, http://127.0.0.1:8888/blank.html. I don't think wptdriver.exe is picking up the URL under test for some reason. Perhaps my wptdriver.ini and/or location.ini files (below) are in error. Thanks for your help.

location.ini:
-----------

[locations]
1=Test_loc
2=Public_Dulles
default=Test_loc

;
; These are the top-level locations that are listed in the location dropdown
; Each one points to one or more browser configurations
;

[Test_loc]
1=webpagetestserver
label=Akamai Tester
group=Desktop

[Public_Dulles]
1=WPT_Dulles_IE9
2=WPT_Dulles_IE10
label="WebPagetest.org - Dulles, VA"
group=Public

;
; Tese are the browser-specific configurations that match the configurations
; defined in the top-level locations. Each one of these MUST match the location
; name configured on the test agent (urlblast.ini or wptdriver.ini)
;

[webpagetestserver]
browser=Chrome,Firefox,IE11
latency=0
label="Akamai Tester"
connectivity=LAN

[IE11]
browser=IE 11
latency=0
label="Akamai Tester - IE 11"

;
; For a wptdriver configuration (chrome, firefox), the browser labels here
; MUST match the labels used in wptdriver.ini
;

[Chrome]
browser=Chrome
label="Akamai Tester - Chrome"

[Firefox]
browser=Firefox
label="Akamai Tester - Firefox"
;
; This is an example of a "remote" configuration where tests can be proxied to a remote
; webpagetest instance. The test will be run by the remote server but the results
; will be downloaded to the local server and deleted from the remote agent
;
; Each location that you want to use from the remote server needs to be configured
; individually on the local configuration (location names do not need to match)
;
; To use the public webpagetest.org instance you will need an API key
;

[WPT_Dulles_IE9]
browser=IE 9
label="WebPagetest.org Dulles, VA - IE9"
relayServer="http://www.webpagetest.org/"
relayKey=<key>
relayLocation=Dulles_IE9

; KTT - Added to test
[WPT_Dulles_IE10]
browser=IE 10
label="WebPagetest.org Dulles, VA - IE10"
relayServer="http://www.webpagetest.org/"
relayKey=<key>
relayLocation=Dulles_IE10

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

wptdriver.ini:
------------

[WebPagetest]
url=<server_address>
location=webpagetestserver
Time Limit=120
;Automatically install and update support software (Flash, Silverlight, etc)

RE: IE11 starts with about:blank
What version of wptdriver and what version of Firefox? Firefox 48 just rolled out and requires extensions to be signed so you need to be running wptdriver 297 or later: https://www.webpagetest.org/forums/showt...?tid=14436

RE: IE11 starts with about:blank
Just installed ver. 299 of wptdriver. Chrome and Firefox are now working fine. But testing on IE11, 32-bit, still times out on the about:blank page. Thanks for the update.

RE: IE11 starts with about:blank
Try launching IE manually and go to tools->manage add-ons and make sure the WebPageTest plugin is enabled.
