New Relic is sometimes unable to locate an element and i keep getting an error messages similar to this---Error: no such element: Unable to locate element: {"method":"css selector","selector":"div.buttons-set-login > button.button"}

I made cssselector to css but still it doe's not work i tried locating the element by its xpath and still i get an error. Am i limited to locating elements because i am not using  JavaScript syntax?

var By = $driver.By;
var driver = $browser;
    
   
    driver.get("http://www.iccsafe.org");
    driver.findElement(By.css("div.buttons-set-login > button.button")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.id("eWebLoginControl_TextBoxPassword")).clear();
    driver.findElement(By.id("eWebLoginControl_TextBoxPassword")).sendKeys("sdsdsdsd");
    driver.findElement(By.id("eWebLoginControl_TextBoxLoginName")).clear();
    driver.findElement(By.id("eWebLoginControl_TextBoxLoginName")).sendKeys("sdsdsdsd@ddsdsd.com");
    driver.findElement(By.id("eWebLoginControl_LoginGoButton")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.css("button.button.btn-cart")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.id("qty_45646")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.id("qty_45646")).clear();
    driver.findElement(By.id("qty_45646")).sendKeys("1");
    driver.findElement(By.css("button.button.btn-cart")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.linkText("Remove item")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.xpath("(//button[@type='button'])[6]")).click();

Is it is possible your code is running before the page is ready?

Have you tried putting your code in a window onload function

jQuery
$(function() {
   initialise(); 
});
function initialise() {
var By = $driver.By;
var driver = $browser;
   
   
    driver.get("http://www.iccsafe.org");
    driver.findElement(By.css("div.buttons-set-login > button.button")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.id("eWebLoginControl_TextBoxPassword")).clear();
    driver.findElement(By.id("eWebLoginControl_TextBoxPassword")).sendKeys("sdsdsdsd");
    driver.findElement(By.id("eWebLoginControl_TextBoxLoginName")).clear();
    driver.findElement(By.id("eWebLoginControl_TextBoxLoginName")).sendKeys("sdsdsdsd@ddsdsd.com");
    driver.findElement(By.id("eWebLoginControl_LoginGoButton")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.css("button.button.btn-cart")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.id("qty_45646")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.id("qty_45646")).clear();
    driver.findElement(By.id("qty_45646")).sendKeys("1");
    driver.findElement(By.css("button.button.btn-cart")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.linkText("Remove item")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.xpath("(//button[@type='button'])[6]")).click(); 
}

Open in new window

JavaScript
Using window.onload has side effects - you can overwrite what was there before - the jQuery solution does not have the same risk.
windows.onload = start();

function start() 
{
   initialise();
   // put any other onload handlers here
}

function initialise() {
   ...
   // As above
}

I apologize i don't know what window onload is. The script I created is Java/Selenium my script works in eclipse but not in New Relic. I am not very knowledgeable in coding i can just create scripts in eclipse. My company has me starting New relic and i have been having trouble with it. Some scripts pass with no problems and others i get an error message displaying element cannot be found.

Replace
 driver.findElement(By.css("div.buttons-set-login > button.button")).click();

Open in new window

with
driver.findElement(By.linkText("Login")).click();

If you have the Selenium IDE installed you can select the particular line it recorded and click the drop down for "Target" to see alternate selectors it has detected. Eventually you will want to learn the basics of css and html so you can build your own selectors based on what should be most reliable. In the short term using the By.linkText locator will probably be easiest for you.
