ElementNotInteractableException: element not interactable: element has zero size appears since upgrade to chromedriver 83

The root cause of that issue is that Chrome doesn't scroll to the element outside of the viewport. Instead of it, Chrome tries to click on it outside of the viewing area. That's why the issue appears. It is definitely an issue with Chrome 83 because I didn't face it on Chrome 81.

Moreover, I have no such issue on Windows machine, it reproduced only on Linux (I'm using selenoid docker images).

Solution with a click via JS is not the best option, because via JS you can click anywhere even for unclickable elements (e.g. overlapped by other objects). It's an unsafe operation.

Instead of this, I would suggest scrolling to the element before click and after native click(); it will work just perfectly.

JavascriptExecutor executor = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
executor.executeScript("arguments[0].scrollIntoView(true);", element);    

I'm getting this error also, i did some digging, i found that the element size contains 0, for example an element of size 200 x 0 will get you this error if you want to click on it. This is not a docker only error, i'm getting it on local chrome 83.

Try clicking on element using the Javascript Executor:

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

I ended up using scrollIntoView() which did the trick (below code is from Protractor test):

// scroll to it


// click it
