Steps to reproduce

Simplifying the repro steps for this issue. What it boils down to is this:
If you click ".submit()" on the form element itself, we fail to submit due to an elementnotfound exception. All other drivers work in this case.

This code will repro:

            _driver.FindElementById(“inputelement”).Submit(); // does not fail
            _driver.FindElementById(“formelement”).Submit(); // fails

(the html of the page is simply this:
<form id="formelement">
    <input id="inputelement" type="text">

    • Hi,

      Can you provide a repro for this?  For example, the website you tested against and your webDriver code?

      From the exception logs it is showing that there is a problem locating the requested element:

      Have you tried selecting the form button and then using the click() method?  Both submit() on a form element and click() on a form button should work:
