I’m using brave browser on the operating system Pop!_OS Linux. I’ve seen multiple answer on the web suggesting to do it through adding an argument being the
--user-data-dir and assigning the path of the default browser folder to it. I’ve done this using line of code:
options was defined as and was used as the following:
options = webdriver.ChromeOptions() options.binary_location = '/opt/brave.com/brave/brave' options.add_argument(r"--user-data-dir=/home/sxvxge/.config/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/Default")
options was also used when defining the driver:
service = Service(self.chromedriver) # self.chromedriver is the path to the chromedriver driver : WebDriver = webdriver.Chrome(service=service, options=options)
However, when launching a browser instance with selenium, by using
driver.get(), the instance wouldn’t have the profile data loaded at all. I couldn’t find a solution to my problem no matter what I tried. What could I do to fix this issue?
Note: All paths used in the code are valid.
