Keyword ‘TestStringExist’ is very usefully to check if a web page is loaded successfully

However, it can randomly fail in IE 10 and IE 11

The issue has been addressed in Argent AT 3.1A-1504-T1

Technical Background

IE 10 and IE 11 can randomly generate hidden blank screen on top of the desired web page

As a result, Argent Defender Engine cannot find the string on the blank screen

Upgrade to Argent AT 3.1A-1504-T1 or later
