Cannot identify element with open Chrome console

Post by boris0dev » Mon Oct 19, 2020 7:18 am

Good morning,
I encountered an issue.
In our testsuite we have around 180 tests. All of them open at the beginning Google Chrome (at the time of writing version 86), activate the developer console, open a website and do various tests.
Since around 2 weeks ago there were no issues.
But now there are 2 single buttons that are not any longer clickable.
To be more specific: They _are_ clickable. They are found by Ranorex, are enabled but the click goes to another location on the screen.
I compared the snapshots of the test when the console is activated and closed.
When it is closed the button is displayed in the snapshot. But when it is open not any longer:
fail with console.png
Is this a bug in Ranorex? In Chrome? I spoke to the developers of the AUT and they ensured that the didn't change anything...

Thanks for any help
