Python: Fix getting “about:blank” in Selenium with PhantomJS

Having an issue with selenium when loading some URL with selenium using PhantomJS.
When I get the current_url some URL returned “about:blank” instead of the valid URL.

After several workarounds, the issue because PhantomJS by default using “SSLv3” and many websites had a bug in SSL migrate to TLS and caused got a blank page.

Here is how I solve my issue.

from selenium import webdriver

driver = webdriver.PhantomJS(service_args=['--ignore-ssl-errors=true', '--ssl-protocol=any'])
