Flow browser test: hover failure in IE in flow_logged_in test
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

features/flow_logged_in.feature has

When I hover over the author link
Then the talk to author link is visible

To my knowledge this has always failed in IE, e.g.

https://integration.wikimedia.org/ci/view/BrowserTests/job/browsertests-Flow-en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org-windows_8-internet_explorer-sauce/12/testReport/%28root%29/Create%20new%20topic%20logged%20in/Add_new_Flow_topic_and_show_author_and_block_links/

watching the screencast, "hover over the author link" doesn't reveal the ( Talk | Block ) links though it works fine if I drive IE myself.

It sounds like the hover issue is a known problem for IE, "[webdriver] Mouse Hover not working in IE when mouse pointer inside the window", possible workarounds in http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19662045/selenium-hover-elements-with-ie

In the interim, we should disable that one part of the feature test on IE.

Resetting bug status from PATCH_TO_REVIEW to NEW as workaround was merged.

The workaround just disables the test. It would be nice to fix, though. Do you know what version of IE this is?
