Bug Description

The latest version of chromium (61) introduces a change that breaks the ability of clicking to links outside of the current view using chromedriver.
It seems that there is a fix for it in chromedriver 2.32:

I can confirm that we are seeing the bug in chromedriver 2.30. When running automated tests on Trusty with this package we can no longer click buttons off screen. Would be nice to get this fixed.
