We have a site which utilizes client side XSLT transformation. As Chrome browser has updated to the version 65 the transformation stopped working. The transformToDocument() method outputs error messages to the Chrome development console like "Premature end of data in tag element line ...", referring to the xsl file loaded into the XSLTProcessor object. I don't see anything wrong in the XSLT file (and the line number mentioned just does not exist).
Is it possible to get more detailed information what happens inside the XSLTProcessor object?

We are putting a lab together for a nonprofit.  They said the computers that we might be getting in are chrome books.  So basically we would use chrome books for the lab.  I am not familiar with these types of laptops but I have a few questions?

What is the difference between a normal laptop and a chrome book?  Also, can they connect to a domain?  Can Microsoft office be installed on them?  What are the advantages and limitations?
Can't load various websites on my Windows 2016 server.  (I am using Chrome, same problem with IE).

Sites I CANNOT reach:

This site can’t be reached took too long to respond.
Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
Running Windows Network Diagnostics

Any ideas?

I am using the following VBA code to open multiple URLs (hyperlinked) on Chrome in seperate tabs:

Sub Open_HyperLinks()
Dim chromePath As String, hl As Hyperlink

chromePath = Environ("PROGRAMFILES(X86)") & "\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"
If Selection.Count > 1 Then
End If
'On Error Resume Next
For Each hl In Selection.Hyperlinks
Shell chromePath & " -url " & hl.Address
Next hl
End Sub

The code works almost perfectly and I can see the code attempting to open the links on chrome on seperate tabs. However I ran into another issue which I did not forsee in the beginning when attempting to tackle this project. All my hyperlinks (under one column (G)) are being generated by a formula in each cell: =HYPERLINK(G4) / =HYPERLINK(G5) and so on.

In theory, the macro does not seem to be opening the URL in hyperlink but the actual formula itself from which the hyperlink has been generated. Is there any way the above code can be tweaked for the macro to actually open the hyperlink I need to access?

If yes, could you please let me know what I am doing wrong? I have exhausted all possibilities I could think of even tried to look for answers on forums.

Thank You

Like a shortcut to force hide taskbar
I access my gym website via this link to book into classes.

I enter my username and password and when I click to login nothing happens as if I have not the log in button (on my iphone 5se or desktop PC)

The site works in IE, Mozilla and on Chrome for devices where I am not logged into Chrome.

Chrome is my preferred browser as it saves the username and password which makes it easiest to login and book classes.

I assume there is some kind of issue with my Chrome account, maybe there is a cache of some kind, I cleared the history but cautious that I don't want to wipe my Chrome account too much if possible.

I crucially did not mention during original post that I've had this issue for a few months and just put up with it.  Since this issue started there has been a couple of Chrome updates which I hoped may fix the issue but didn't.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm relatively new to Google Hangouts and Google Docs, but I am enjoying the features.

One problem I'm having is that random people seem to try and start conversations with me. I get emails such as;

Hangouts Emailsweet girl started a conversation with you View Conversation: 
This notification was sent to Don't want to  
receive Google Hangouts notifications? Change which emails Google Hangouts  
sends to you: 
To stop receiving Google Hangouts notifications from someone, open their  
Google+ profile and click Mute. Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy,  
Mountain View, CA 94043 USA

I know I can simply unsubscribe from notifications, but I don't want to do that because I do want notifications when my approved contacts in Hangout try to contact me. I could also easily flag these for automatic delete in Mailwasher, but I'd like to avoid doing that as well.

I've looked at Hangouts Settings, but can't see what I would need to change in order to stop people I haven't approved trying to contact me.

Is there a setting in Hangouts Settings I could set that I'm unaware of so that only my approved contacts can contact me?

Thanks for any help...
Chrome slow to load (10 sec at least) since last major Windows update (Feb 2018). Once loaded requested web pages appeared quickly, no problem. In the meantime no problem with Edge. Did Microsoft purposely slow down competing browsers!! What can I do to fix this?
Within the Mac Google Chrome web browser the current website URL address can be quickly emailed by clicking File and then clicking "Email Page Location" (see the screenshot).

Are there any quick and easy ways of doing this within Google Chrome for Windows (without having to copy the website URL, open a new email, and then paste the URL address)?

Several Mac users who have started using Windows are looking for a quick and easy way emailing website URL addresses and I am trying to find the easiest ways for them to do this.

A Mac user I support who has just started using a Windows computer would like to add the top Chrome Menu bar of "Chrome, File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, People, Window, Help" to the top of his Windows Chrome browser just like how the Mac Chrome Browser is configured (see the screenshot).

Is there any way of doing this?

Chrome, Safari and Comodo Dragon  browsers all auto-inherited the  proxy setting from my IE & is greyed out but not Firefox.

Which file in Chrome & Comodo & FIrefox stores this proxy setting?  I thought of renaming it to something else for Chrome & Comodo
so that it doesn't inherit what's in IE & got greyed out (ie I can't change it even though I have local administrator rights).

Firefox is fine, as it doesn't inherit nor got greyed out but I want Chrome/Comodo to be the same.  How to do this?
Weird issue, I have a client connecting to a test site and it works with Chrome but it won't work with IE. Everyone else in the department can access but her. Any ideas?

Google Chrome Captcha issue.

Hi, we've been getting the captcha challenge when doing normal web browsing searches. Reading the online help I understand that it could be caused by many factors, we're a small business of about 100 computers, no way i can check each machine. I'm looking at web traffic on the FW and nothing stands out, have you dealt with the same issue with that many devices? if so how did you handle it?  

when i click a link [such as] i get this error box:

chrome.exe - Application Error
The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000034). Click OK to close the application.

this happens sometimes, but not always. if i copy/paste the link, it works fine. if i kill chrome and start a new instance, it seems to fix it for short while.
this just started recently. what could be causing this?

A friend is continually being signed out of his Google accounts on his computer.

I have checked his cookies setting in Chrome, logged in to each of his accounts. when I close Chrome and re-open all his accounts have to be signed in again.

I have tested this on my computer in Chrome and his accounts stay signed in after I close and reopen Chrome.

I have reset his Chrome, cleared his cookies and other site data and his cached images and files. After logging back in to each account and setting each page to reopen they have to be signed into again after I close and reopen Chrome.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome. Signed into each account, set them to "open a specific page or set of pages". Closed Chrome and reopened and again have to re-sign into each of his Google accounts. I am at my wits end...Please help!!
I have a user with IE11 and windows 7 and it seems that an old password is being saved in one of the logins for a program she needs to get to. It works in Chrome however, it is affecting programs in IE.  Is there a tool I can use to clean up the passwords.  I know deleting the users profile will clean up the issue however the user will not allow me to do so.  I've tried resetting the browser, clearing the cache and all save passwords and it's still showing up.  Is there anything else I can possibly do?

With the Ranorex test tool, I want to open one of the established browsers in "normal" window state with a predefined fixed size. I know that it is possible to open a browser maximized state. From C#, it is also possible to open a window beside this in minimized or normal state, although I am first interested in the recording modules.

What I need is to open i.e. the Google Chrome browser with 400×600 pixels exactly. We need such tests, as the software appearance differs from one resolution to another (app appearance, Web appearance, etc.).

Thank you for your help!
Hi Experts,

I'm running Windows 10 Pro.

Just in the last hour or so I cannot get File Explorer or Chrome to open.
Other apps, e.g. Firefox, Edge and MS Access, all open OK.

After clicking the icons on the taskbar I can see the "previews" of these apps - so they are starting up, but not displaying the full GUIs.

I have rebooted.

sfc /SCANNOW does not report any errors.

Hi One page is always my startup page. I want to remove it, but I cannot in Firefox and Chrome.

Here are steps I used:

How do I change my start page in Firefox?
Change Startup Page. On any open Mozilla Firefox window, press “Alt-T,” and then select “Options” on the drop-down menu. Under the General tab, insert the URL of a website or Web page into the field next to “Home Page,” and then click “Use Current Page” to make it your default startup page.

After I did above, it is still there when i start Firefox in Win8

Anyone has some suggestion? Thank you
Could someone give me a method using js or html to create a link that will open in chrome (IE is the default browser for our company)  I have been researching and as far as I can tell there is no method.
After installing Chrome on this new PC with Windows 10, I get nothing but a blank screen, please see attached. I have done the following:

uninstalled and re-installed
ran the chrome removal tool
deleted the google folder from the user profile
ran CCleaner to repair the registry
Nothing has resolved this issue, any suggestions?
Hello. I have a simple .net site with just a few pages and links.  The problem is that the page shows up fine in Chrome and Firefox but in IE 11 it isn't showing my CSS styles.  Seems like it isn't reading my CSS files.  

Here is my head where I link to bootstrap and my stylesheets.
<head runat="server">
    <link href="/" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <link href="/core.css?ver=1" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" />

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/styles.css" media="screen" />
    <link href="" rel="stylesheet" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js.js?ver=1"></script>

This is my header and nav bar that are on every page.  None of these styles will display in IE 11
