I need to find a combination of Python, Selenium and Browser version that works best on Windows 7.  I have tried Python 3.5.2, Selenium 2.53.6 and various versions of Firefox but none of them will do what I need done.

I just need to select all of a page in front of me that is a cms page so it isn't showing the html tags or body tags.  The source code isn't a solution either because it is a cms page it leaves out just the content in the window that selenium navigates to. I have tried xpath and that is why I am thinking I need to make sure they all 3 work together well because it shows the following error.

(ff2-32) C:\Users\Randal J. Watkins\ff2>python expertsbrazil_clean.py
