Steps to reproduce
When attempting to ‘click’ a button that is mostly covered by the task bar, the driver fails the test and returns an 'element obscured’.
The driver, should (but does not) scroll down so the button is fully visible, and then click the button.
Behavior is normal for all buttons entirely off screen.
An example remote script, and html page can be downloaded here.
In the css file, this issue happens for all offset included in the range [-43.5, -43.9] at a screen resolution of 1920x1080 with the task bar across the bottom edge of the screen.
Attached is a picture of just how much the button has to be obscured before the driver fails.
OS build 10586.916
Comments and activity
There are two work arounds for this.
If you send a null char to the button, the driver will move to the proper view, and you can click.
