An internal error occurred while running the Google Chrome browser

On running the script, an error is thrown as the attached image. SmartBear extension is installed and enabled also. Each time on closing the browser and reopening, the extension is disabled. How can this be solved?


And also, if the extension is enabled and run the script without closing the browser, no objects are recognized!!

Hi Alex,

Yes, it was working previously! I dint open the tool for a week, and when I tried to run the existing script this is the error I got on launching chrome. 


Wasn't Chrome updated recently?

Ans: Chrome was not updated!




Hi Alex,

Could you please help me to find if the chrome version "Version 78.0.3904.87" is supported? If it is not supported, what is the procedure to update?


Thanks in advance,

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.
