Xpaths working on Chrome but not on Edge(Salesforce Lightening)

We are trying to automate Salesforce Lightening application using Selenium Webdriver. We have to click a span (Coming in autofill lookup). Code is working fine on Chrome but failing on Edge (Not able to find the element).

We have tried with following 4 xpaths. All are working on Chrome


  1. .//span[@class,’itemLabel slds-truncate slds-show–inline-block slds-m-left–xx-small’]
  2. .//lightning-icon[@class,’itemIcon slds-icon slds-icon–x-small slds-m-left–x-small slds-icon-text-default slds-button__icon slds-icon-utility-search slds-icon_container forceIcon’]
  3. .//div[@class,’searchButton itemContainer slds-lookup__item-action–label slds-text-link–reset slds-grid slds-grid–vertical-align-center slds-truncate forceSearchInputLookupDesktopActionItem lookup__header highlighted’]
  4. .//div[@data-aura-class,’forceSearchInputLookupDesktopActionItem’]

Anyone faced similar issue or has the solution for this, please help here.

    can you try using thread.sleep(5000);

    or any other wait for EDGE and then give a try.

    Thanks Saket

    But adding wait didn’t resolve the issue.
