How can I keep Chrome to stay at 125% instead of seemingly changing at random to 25% ?  Windows 10, Dell M4800 Laptop. New Nvidia driver. ( Had same  problem before new driver also.)

I just had to do a system restore, and reinstalled Chrome. Everything went smoothly and it even "saw" the tabs I has saved for the top of the home page.

But now, when I click on the shortcut to open the browser, when it opens, the message appears, saying "Google is not your browser of choice" (or whatever the exact words are),  and also displays what appears to be a link to click on set it as my go-to browser. I have clicked on that, but it still keeps appearing pretty much every time I open the thing.  

What is this and how do I set it to avoid this repetition?
Is it possible to store a video locally in the browser for repeat playback?

I have a screen that is on a mobile connection that serves video ads.  Most of the videos are the same, but at different points in the day videos are changed.  It currently is hitting an html5 page I have setup, but each time the video plays it re-downloads the file, is there a way if it's the same video to play it from local storage vs redownloading?
I’ve surfed the internet for a while trying to find a way of exporting Chrome’s passwords.
I’ve done each of the settings from this website, http://techdows.com/2016/08/google-chrome-built-in-passwords-import-and-export-feature.html, but no luck.

I am logged in as the Administrator

I able to create the csv file, but the csv continues to be blank no matter what I try. This seems to be a known problem looking over the internet.

I am using the most up to date version of Chrome, and I have tried the Chrome beta version as suggested on other websites, both still export no data at all to the csv file.

I have tried saving the csv file to xls, but being there is nothing in the csv file to save, the xls is blank too.

I am not sure if backing up the user data folder from Chrome, uninstall/reinstall Chrome, copy over the user data folder, and then try to export the passwords. I know copying the user data folder includes bookmarks, but I am not sure if that folder includes passwords.

This is something great about FireFox is MozBackup. Using MozBackup you can easily export/import logins, passwords, etc.

I would think there has to be something like MozBackup, but of all the internet surfing I have done there seems to be nothing like MozBackup for Chrome.

I am trying to do this for people at work who do not want to use FireFox.

Anyone know a fix or another way to export/import Chrome logins/passwords?


We have an inhouse developed WEB app (accessible from internal and external) which runs scripts when users click a report button and select date field.

In Chrome, users see a security warning "This page is trying to load scripts from unauthentication sources" - Plesae see attached.

In IE, I see similar script warning.  

I have realized if I go to IE options>Internet zone>misc and allow "Display Mixed Content", the message will be bypassed.

Is there another setting I should look at besides making that change in internet zone and make the browser safer?

I need to make the similar setting in Chrome.

In the end, I will need to use a GPO to tweak that browser setting for the users.

I'm trying to understand some unexpected behaviour here, I know that an AJAX could be a solution to resolve it but that does not help me understand this behaviour, so I'm looking for an answer to that. Can anyone help me?

I came accross the below issue:

1: user clicks a button
2: a js function is called to check the input of the form field and if accepted will submit the form to save_to_db.php in an iframe.
3: in the iframe, save_to_db.php will save the form details to the db and calls another js function that updates the contents of html elements on the current page showing the latest status.

This used to work without any issues (and still does in most browsers).

But now in Chrome Mobile browser version 63.0.3239 somehow every link a user clicks after they clicked the button, will load to save_to_db.php (the form action of the button) instead of the link that is clicked.

Has anyone noticed this or similiar behaviour or does anyone know why this happens?
Hello everybody,

I often get the message "Microsoft.com is not responding" when using Edge while the exact same page opens fine on Firefox and Chrome. Do you have any ideas? I am running Windows 10 (1703 OS build 15063.786) and Edge 40.15063.674.

Thank you in advance
Starting yesterday evening, I'm frequently seeing the following message. Seems to occur when opening/working with Chrome.

Google msg (1 of 2)
When I click to show details, i see:

Google msg (2 of 2)
These msgs persist even after restarting.

How can I tell if this thing is a legitimate Google update, or a virus/malware?
How can I turn off this notification?

Additional info. (May or may not be relevant):
1. My machine restarted overnight without my asking for a reboot.
2. When I first stated up this morning, I saw a msg that my snipping tool was not functional....including something about contacting my system administrator. That issue resolved on its own.
3. While not actively working in Chrome, I saw it (on its own) navigate to my default page (page that comes up when I start it. Not sure if this behavior was a delayed start, or something else.

 Due to corrupted user profile in Windows 10, I had to create a new use profile after renaming old profile with _old.
 New User profile: C:\Users\Bob
 Old Use profile:     C:\users\Bob_old.

 How can I transfer favorites in Mozila Firefox and Google Chrome under old user profile to new user profile? I did not create any backup under old user profile and I can't log back in to old user profile.

Constantly on numerous machines very recently.

I have hyperlink in a jsp page that calls a javascript (<a href="javascript:somefunction()" > Save </a> )

someFunction() is in same jsp, but the function body contains methods from another.js file.

In Mozilla ESR onblur and onclick event is executing simultaneously.

But, in Chrome and IE it is working fine.

Can someone please help on this ?
Hi Team,

I'm making a chrome extension, and basically id like to be able to pass it a certain word - like "Dog" and then it will click on every instance of "Dog" on the page. It should have a small time limit between each click. How would I do this? Whenever I've attempted this before I haven't been able to get it to work.

we have a number of chromebooks that need access to chrome admin for initial configuration. During initial config we deploy wifi settings and certificates. But the initial config needs to be access through an open or easily accessible network, preferably with destionation limitations,
so which URLs and which ports need to be opened? cannot find anything online
My goal is just to write a procedure to periodically make web requests and see the server latency - just to test the ISP's server response times 24/7 - with C#.
I'm going spare trying to get BrowserMobProxy to run, it runs OK in the standalone with selenium/I've tried both Chrome + FF , but the HAR files come back empty.
I only want the server latency, is there any native C# way of getting the request timings?
For example:


HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Fri, 01 Dec 2017 10:50:12 GMT
Server: Apache/2.4.17 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.1e-fips PHP/5.6.16
Last-Modified: Fri, 01 Dec 2017 10:36:49 GMT
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 143
Keep-Alive: timeout=1, max=100
Connection: Keep-Alive
Content-Type: text/html

Open in new window

Firefox and Chrome are saying that the size of the response headers above are: 287 B

You can check the amount of bytes via for example: https://lingojam.com/ByteCounter

HTTP/1.1 200 OK							15
Date: Fri, 01 Dec 2017 10:50:12 GMT				35

Last-Modified: Fri, 01 Dec 2017 10:36:49 GMT			44		
Accept-Ranges: bytes						20
Content-Length: 143						19
Keep-Alive: timeout=1, max=100					30
Connection: Keep-Alive						22
Content-Type: text/html						23
------------------------------------------------------------------------- +
15+35+59+44+20+19+30+22+23=					267 Bytes

Open in new window

With other tests I already found out that behind every line is coming 2 bytes extra (enter). And with other tests I found out that the status code is also part of this calculation.

There are 9 lines above, but I'm not sure if there is an enter coming after the last line. So we have 2 options:
9 * 2 = 18 Bytes
8 * 2 = 16 Bytes

267 + 16 = 283 Bytes
267 + 18 = 285 Bytes

But the browser says 287 Bytes. So there is a difference of 2 or 5 Bytes between my calculation and the calculation of the browser.

The questions is:
- Is there also an enter coming after the last line?
- Where are the extra Bytes coming from exactly? Is there somewhere some white line and where exactly?

So with other words: How to calculate the size of the response headers?
We've been recently experiencing extremely high CPU usage on one of our 2008R2 Terminal Servers.
We found that it's due to the vast amount of processes (for all users) being used by chrome.
Roughly 75% of the CPU was used just by Chrome.
As soon as the highest users tasks for Chrome were ended, performance went back to normal.

Is there any way to limit the amount of processes chrome uses or any way to limit the CPU for this?

We seem to be having an issue with Google Chrome on our network. When you load it everything seems fine, then when you goto the first page it takes about 2 minutes to load, surfing while on that domain seems fine, however try to goto another domain and you can start waiting again. It sounds like DNS however Firefox and IE work fine, its just Chrome.

Any ideas?

I would like to run a cardgame but after a starting an playing a few cards, it halts and I am unable to play any further.
The only way to restart the game it to exit, relaunch it (enter password credentials, etc).
However, that should be done at -each- card that is played...

There was a suggestion to run a websockets test as maybe there was/is a problem there.
So I did.

All ports were OK (tagged with 'Yes').
After waiting some 10-20 seconds I noticed though that Port 443, SSL was disconnected.
Maybe this is the cause of the issue above.

Q: How to solve this?

I used Chrome for Android, as well as Samsung's own Internet browser.
I have 2 accounts on my tablet (admin and guest), the above issue is with both browsers on both accounts.
