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.

currently I am running 2.53.6 Selenium, Python 3.5.2 32 bit and FF 48.

Please make recommendations based on experience not just something you have read.

Went to Selenium Google Groups and came up with FireFox 43.0.1, Webdriver 2.53.6 and Python 3.5.2 and I am running it all on Windows 7.
