    Good evening all, I'm writing a Selenium script this evening and ran into a snag that I am hoping someone can help me with. I have this element on the page: <li class="text-right">
    <input type="submit" value="Log in" class="btn btn-default js-ajax-api-track-form-submit" data-tracking-token="$lookup;table=login;event=site">

    I was able to find the element by using find_element_by_class_name (i think) but when I call .click() on it nothing seems to happen. Is this the correct way to interact with this type of element? I have the script checked in here http://ow.ly/zcV1U if anyone has time to take a look. Thank you for your time. ./Chris

      Well, that was short lived. 5-10 minutes of intense rain, couldn't see anything outside. I unplugged everything, and then it cleared up.
