The element not tractable or not visible or covered by another opened element (for example dropdown, modal window) error is coming due to the exact same problem. Check it out https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44119081/how-do-you-fix-the-element-not-interactable-exception Make sure your element is visible before clicking it or sending text if it is an input field.


You use:

    ((JavascriptExecutor)driver).executeScript("arguments[0].click();", element);

to click. As I understand it is because standard click() does not work. JavascriptExecutor most likely won't work if the element is not visible.
