Steps to reproduce

When navigating to a page, if an unexpected alert pops up, (ex. denying access to the page) Edge Driver will hang for a full minute. If you then use an OpenQA.Selenium.Support.UI.WebDriverWait (call it wait) and call wait.Until(ExpectedConditions.AlertIsPresent()), no matter what the setting on the wait object it will wait another full minute without detecting the alert before it times out.

    • Hi John,

      Do you also have an implicit wait defined as well?  Let me know if you are familiar with the information in the following URL:


      If this is not the issue, will you provide a simplified repro?

      Thank you,
