Hi all, This test works in headed mode, but do not work in headless mode. Never.

Any tips?

await page.getByText('Imprimir').click()

const pagePromise = context.waitForEvent('page'); await page.getByRole('link', { name: 'Guia de Reparação' }).click();

const newPage = await pagePromise; await newPage.waitForLoadState(); await expect(newPage).toHaveURL(/guia/,url);


Error: page.waitForLoadState: Test timeout of 200000ms exceeded. at tests\MM\CriarGuiaMM.spec.js:21:17

Execution log

"networkidle" event fired

This thread is trying to answer question "Why does the toHaveURL validation test work in headed mode but not in headless mode, and how can this issue be resolved?"

Hi, have you tried recording a trace and viewing it with the trace viewer? https://playwright.dev/docs/trace-viewer-intro


Yes I did. I used all the tools in order to find it but no joy. It simply doesn’t load the new page.


Btw, on the trace was everything as expected, clicking on the right locators.

Then the only thing I can suggest is to create an issue for this at GitHub.
