I do not know when it started but starting last week, when I use the Microsoft Message Header Analyzer website, after I pasted the message header, when I scroll down to see the display result, I am not able to.  

I have tried different browser and  computer but still the same issue.  

Does anyone have the same issue?

Dear Wizards, I got this error when browsing vCenter; Adobe Flash player was installed with latest version but did not help.

Could you please assist? Many thanks in advance.
Dear expert,

I have taken over a server from someone who is no longer with the company.  The server is not yet in production and I an entrusted to get it up and running and into production.  In going through the motions and checking out various things to see where the server stands, I came across this ... whenever I click on something in IE, I get the message "Please click here if you are not redirected within a few seconds"?

The server is running Windows 2016 Essentials as the OS.  The IE version is 11.

I have researched this issue before sending in a question.  I have tried the following:

1. I have reset IE (restarted computer as instructed).
2. I have reset IE -and- clicked on delete personal settings (restarted computer as instructed).

So far nothing I do seems to work.

I was attempting to download Chrome when I this message came up.  Also, if you don't mind, in trying to download Chrome, a second issue occurs.  When I get to the download chrome website, I click on 'Download Chrome' and nothing happens.  I can scroll up and down the page, but when I click on the 'Download Chrome' link, nothing happens.  My guess is that these 2 issues are related somehow with IE's security settings.

Any assistance you can give on these 2 issues is appreciated.

Documentation on Google's Developer Site was recently updated to specify that Googlebot's web rendering technology is based on Chrome version 41:

So if you really want to see how your site looks to Googlebot, you'll need to go find an old installer. This could be really helpful for troubleshooting "Crawl Errors" you find in Search Console.
On this page: http://ruback-jewelry-sale.wizewebz.com/ if you click "RSVP" button a modal opens.  In Chrome and Safari the placeholders show up and if you type in the boxes you see your black text input.  

But in FireFox for some reason the placeholders are not showing and if I type in the input boxes the text does not appear.

Any ideas on the cross browser issue?
Good afternoon,

Mozilla seems to have stopped displaying images on our website.  We noticed it today, but not sure when it started.

Our website is https://ppar.com.  This is a 2012R2 Server running IIS 8.5.9600.16384.  Our websites reside on this server.  We have a valid cert for this website.  The images reside on another server running Server 2016 with IIS 10.0.14393.0.  The images server also has a valid cert.  The time on both servers is correct and both certificates have not expired.

When I try a valid link ( https://photos.ppar.com/matrixlarge/11/8120075-1.jpg ) in both Chrome and Firefox, it works in Chrome and fails in Firefox with the following error:
"An error occurred during a connection to photos.ppar.com. Invalid OCSP signing certificate in OCSP response. Error code: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_INVALID_SIGNING_CERT"

I'm beating my head against a wall...any help?

Good morning,
I use Google Chrome as my primary browser. I do have access to Microsoft Edge.
This past weekend I suddenly noticed that in Chrome every manually entered text or numbers are displayed with white text on a white background. I have no problems with Edge, as I am creating this using Edge. How can I change my font color?
I use Chrome and wonder what I need to install into Visual Studio Code in order to debug inside of Visual Studio Code.

I do not want to use the Chrome debugger, since I waste so much time  searching for the file to debug. I wand to set breakpoints in Visual Studio Code.

What’s the first thing you install—or uninstall—on a new system?
The first thing I install on a new PC system (other than OS & drivers) is usually a tie between the Chrome browser and Blizzard's Battle.net client, closely followed by Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. On my Mac, I skip straight to Lightroom and Photoshop, since I'm happy with Safari and don't try to game much on that system (that's what the PC is for ;-)

As for uninstalling, usually nothing... My last PC was a custom build so there wasn't any junk on it and Macs are great about not having anything I don't want.

Yeah, definitely got to take care of all the OS and driver patches first! What do you do after all that?

I don't install PCs for a living, and only do that for select family members: myself, children, wife and mother in law.
Everybody gets Chrome, Office and Adobe Acrobat reader.
Then for each their tools of trade. This is the list of first installations as happened during the past year.

For me:
* Virtual box, Git, JDK, Python, Jetbrains IDE, curl, whois, dig, jq, notepad++, skype, mumble and Eve Online

For my mother in law:
* OE Classic

For my wife:
* Photoshop, Invision, Premiere

For my son:
* Minecraft, Netflix

For my daughter:
* Matlab, Netflix
I have a website with an iframe who's height is calculated via some javascript on the host and iframe pages.

The script used to work perfectly, but a recent Chrome update has made the code break!

The script still works fine with Opera, Safari, Firefox and Edge and generates the iframe height as per the DOM Inspector code below:

<iframe height="2037px" id="smartframe" src="http://smartinsight.co.uk/bakersdolphin/web/brochure-request.php" scrolling="no" style="width:100%;border:none;" onload="iframeLoaded()"></iframe>

Open in new window

On chrome, the height is not injected via the javascript, so the height is assumed to be 0 and the iframe is not displayed. Therefore the DOM Inspector shows:

<iframe id="smartframe" onload="iframeLoaded()" src="http://smartinsight.co.uk/bakersdolphin/web/brochure-request.php" style="width:100%;border:none;" scrolling="no" height="0px"></iframe>

Open in new window

The javascript in the host page reads:
<script type="text/javascript">
    var myEventMethod =
        window.addEventListener ? "addEventListener" : "attachEvent";
    var myEventListener = window[myEventMethod];
    var myEventMessage =
        myEventMethod == "attachEvent" ? "onmessage" : "message";
    myEventListener(myEventMessage, function (e) {
        if (e.data === parseInt(e.data))
            document.getElementById('smartframe').height = e.data + "px";
    }, false);

Open in new window

The Iframe code is

<iframe id="smartframe" onload="iframeLoaded()" src='http://smartinsight.co.uk/bakersdolphin/web/brochure-request.php' style='width:100%;border:none;' scrolling='no'></iframe>

Open in new window

On the "iframe page" the javascript to determine the height of the frame is:

<script type="text/javascript">
    window.onload = function() {

Open in new window

The website is available to view at http://www.bakersdolphin.com/brochure-request

I'd appreciate any help in resolving the problem!

Thank you

We have a handful of HP LaserJet M602 printers that we're having some issues with. We have an application server located in a data center that can print to a number of printers in our organization but cannot print to any of these M602 printers. I've troubleshooted a couple of things like making sure the printers are using port 9001, disabling/enabling SNMP and made sure the server has the correct IPs for these printers. One thing I did notice is that if I browse to the printer's IP in Chrome or IE, I get a privacy error that I have to bypass. On all of our other printers that work fine, it takes me straight to the status page without any privacy or certificate error. Is there a setting that can be changed to bypass the privacy error to see if that resolves our issue?
I have transferred passwords between Google Chrome number of times before and it worked a treat. Recently when I tried to do this (Chrome version 61.0.3163) from Windows 7 32bit to Windows 10 64 bit it just did not work.

It seems that transferring Login data and Login data journal does not have any effect anymore.

  • there's no Import and Export button under the Manage Passwords menu so this method is not available for me
  • attempts to bring back Export settings button via Flags menu to disable Material change settings were not successful. The very much needed button did not show
  • exporting via store passwords on passwords.google.com not an option as it's blocked for security reasons
  • logging user to Chrome for Chrome to store passwords under users profile not an option for the very same reasons
  • use of third party software like Chromepass from Nirsoft not an answer since I am not after previewing but transferring passwords

Has anyone got any ideas how to achieve what I am after - full transfer for passwords between Chrome installations please?
Is there a setting in Chrome and in IE that I can access that compels the system to open up TIFF files in Windows Previewer rather than those files being automatically downloaded?

I do not have any issue at all with Windows 10 Pro preinstalled OEM by Lenovo. BIG HUGE waste of time to blow it away and spend a day redoing it for nothing.

Latterly only one piece of Lenovo software bit the dust (Lenovo Solution Center) which was replaced with a better piece of software. Voluntary (optional) Lenovo software need not be installed and I do not.

It is a personal preference really in the end. It does not bug some as much as others,
One might have plenty of resources and decide that it has little to no impact on their experience.
So whether it is a waste of time depends on what one wants from their system.
Personally I prefer max performance and security. The fewer 3rd party apps or vendor apps, the better.

Lenovo is not as bad as some other firms with their own apps but has also been tapped by for example Duo due to big security vulnerabilities in software allowing hackers to bypass protection software and take over control.
Being security focused this translates into my person preferences.

In the end a full system rebuild takes me between 1.5-2 hours average including patches & configuring things plus transferring data where applicable. (Talking SSD. SATA takes more time indeed)
e.g. if I buy HP, Dell, Lenovo OEM I would first need to upgrade to Creator update, then remove optional SW, Trials, Games and more.
That update process itself takes me as long as simply having the ISO already and doing it from scratch.
That was where my point of view comes from :)
Good afternoon,

I've got an issue where I can't get Chrome extensions installed on my image, I put it into write mode, drop the change user/install into the command prompt, install the chrome extensions and it doesn't update them to version 5.

The chrome extension is the legacy browser support

We're on Xenapp 6.5

What's the best way to get chrome extensions updated so they work first time for the users, is there somewhere on the xenapp server I can put them?

I want to make IE my default browser.  There is plenty of information on how to do that, and I've gone through all of the basic stuff.  The problem I have is that when I go to CP -> Associate a file type or protocol with a program.  I scroll down to Protocols and try to set up IE to be associated with HTTP.  Clicking on Change program brings up a dialog with Firefox and Chrome, but no option for IE.

It must require a registry hack to fix this but I'm not sure what it would be.

The reason I want to fix this is that from Outlook if I click on a link it brings up Chrome.  Normally I could live with that but Chrome automatically changes all my settings to be come my default browser, and there doesn't seem to be any way to stop this.  I don't want to get into a discussion about whose browser is better, but it pisses me off when programs do this kind of stuff and don't give you a way to control it.  If someone knows a reg hack to stop Chrome and Firefox from doing that I'm good with that as a solution as well.

Hello everyone,

Been beating my head against the wall about this for a little bit, and other venues I've tried weren't able to provide a lot, partly due to my lack of knowledge.

We have internal DNS for ourcompany.com hosted on a Server 2012 machine, as well as public DNS for ourcompany.com hosted at GoDaddy. It seems that in the last couple months people have been having issues getting to some of our subdomains pointing to external parties, for example mail.ourcompany.com points to outlook.office365.com. Chrome seems to be the biggest offender when having issues. It seems the browser is looking for the cert for outlook.office365.com, but recognizes that it's coming from mail.ourcompany.com and obviously sees that they're not the same thing.

We only recently added the ourcompany.com forward lookup zone to our internal DNS, and it works fine off-network, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong with our internal DNS to get it to work properly.

Some have suggested pointing the DNS record(s) to an IIS box and do http redirect, rather than having DNS just point straight to the 3rd party.

It also seems that clearing Cached Images and Files in the browser clears up the problem for a few days, but I feel like there's gotta be a better solution than clearing cache via GPO.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks so much!
