What to do if Selenium WebDriver won't load anything when you call .get(url)

  1. Rage.
  2. Search the internet for two days trying to find other people that have the same problem.
  3. Lament the fact that right now you have to work on a crippled Windows XP machine.
  4. Stumble on an old bug report that implies the problem might be with your proxy settings.
  5. Reflect on how problematic the corporate proxy which you're stuck behind has been.
  6. Rage a little more.
  7. Open IE.
  8. Go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections (tab) > LAN settings (button) > Advanced (button under Proxy Settings).
  9. Append* to the list of Exceptions.
  10. You're welcome.
