This test was introduced in to fix  issue#1777  (background:  issue#1777  started failing on Chrome v58+ due to culprit CL ).

Bisecting to see what caused it to fail again on Chrome 60+ .

Performed bisect and found the culprit CL :

Looks like support for "--force-fieldtrials=SiteIsolationExtensions/Control" Chrome command line switch has been removed in this culprit CL. And hence, the fix no longer works for v60+.

From the logs, I see two differences :

1) DEVTOOLS EVENT Page.frameDetached is triggered.

2) DEVTOOLS EVENT DOM.setChildNodes doesn't have "frameId".

Attaching the verbose logs of fail run on v60 and pass run on v58.

some time no update. When it can be solved?

Google is now pushing version 61 (this is going on since 59) and we still don't have a solution to this problem. Is there any update? It's very quickly becoming a significant roadblock.

John, can you update us about the progress? 
Can we have an update please? We can't update chrome until this is corrected. We can still only run against chrome 59 and they are now at 62. A fix, hack, work-around, anything would be appreciated.
We are also stuck using Chrome 59 for our testing. A workaround would be greatly appreciated, there has been no update on this issue for 46 days.
+1 I'm also stuck using Chrome 59.
How often should we be expecting updates? If I'm reading correctly, it looks like it has been 60+ days since we've gotten an update.
Progress update please?

Still looking for a way to fix this issue. Unfortunately we don't have an ETA due to the complexity of the issue.
 Issue 2209  has been merged into this issue.
+1 - We're also affected by this inability to run our automation tests on the latest chrome browsers - any new news? 
+1 Please let us know workaround. This "--force-fieldtrials=SiteIsolationExtensions/Control" is not working.
Hi - Is it possible for someone to indicate if there is a plan to fix this issue at some point or not? It would be very helpful to our automation planning to know if we shouldn't rely on this issue being resolved. Thx!

We expect the fix in ChromeDriver to be release in a few weeks. The fix will require some changes in Chrome, which is expected in upcoming v66.

Thank you for getting this in. I presume this release will be connected to the Chrome browser version 66. Is that correct?
