Problem automating getting correct first input delay on mobile phones
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I've been trying to automate to get the same problem as in T358380: The user is on a mobile phone, switch to desktop, click on the TOC and get high first input delays.

If I connect my phone to my desktop computer and inspect using devtools, I get the high "Input delay" on my interactions. I put a trace here:

However when I try to automate the same, doing the exact same steps and clicking on the TOC, I get the interactions but not the same Input delay. Using automation that is only 6 ms and not 100+. I tried clicking on different elements to make sure I mimic it correctly but no luck. Let me add trace with some clicks:

I want to be able to reproduce it so we in the future could have performance regressions tests to find regressions.

I guess this is because of the extra delay added on single clicks if the viewport is set to a specific size and using Chromedriver the browser "knows" that its a single click.
