WebDriver conformance (Marionette)

  • We've removed preliminary support for WebDriver:SwitchToShadowRoot, which hasn't been added to the WebDriver specification yet (Firefox bug 1662468).
  • We fixed a bug in WebDriver:Back and WebDriver:Forward that caused Marionette to hang when the navigation was triggered from within an <iframe> that gets removed (Firefox bug 1672758).
