I'm using Selenium and Firefox.

I have a link on a page (say linkA) that opens a new page in a new tab. The new tab is displayed when linkA is clicked. I then want to interact with the new page

Selenium cannot identify the new tab. It reports:

[warn] Link has target '_blank', which is not supported in Selenium! Randomizing target to be: selenium_blank24003

Is there any way to tell Selenium to interact with the displayed tab?

you can try this

Webdriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();

driver .switchTo.window("Window name here"); \\by this you can go to new window 

you have to use this  code when your script opens a new window after click on that link ,

now you are in new window and can access the elements of new window.

You can use switchTo() function in webdriver to switch other page or frame.

You can use index to switch.This int is a 0 based index of the windows available. The first window would be 0, the second 1 and so on.

It may help you!
