Because of a new work project, I now need to sign in with Google to the email associated with my client. So, during working hours, I must be signed in that way with Chrome.

However, I listen to YouTube Classical music videos all day when I work, and my YouTube account's associated with my personal Gmail account. If I log in to YouTube (with IE) with that personal account, will it interfere with my work Gmail doings in Chrome?

We have Google Tag Manager tracking code scripts installed on this landing page that we created a while back:

These are the specific instructions that we followed exactly:

However, .. the page is for some reason not loading or displaying  correctly in any of these browsers that I've tested it with (on a Windows 10 PC):

IE 11

The only browser that I've been able to get the page to load and display correctly in is Firefox Developer Edition v61.

Although you can view the underlying source code without any problems (and you'll see that there are many different javascript libraries being loaded), the only "invisible" stuff that's going on under the hood is PHP-based session management .. which I've already tried removing, .. though it didn't make any difference whatsover:

We are having issues with pages loading in Chrome and Edge because of the local storage quota being exceeded. The pages do load in IE.
In our Application.jsx page we have as part of the ComponentWillMount Method:

 localStorage.state = JSON.stringify(
                        "title": "Loading...",
                        "header": "Loading...",
                        "subhead": null,
                        "menu": {},

I believe we need to switch to using indexedDB but not sure how to do this.

This is related to Windows 10 and Browser:
- A client uses 3 browser on the same time (IE, Edge and Chrome)
- He uses IE a lot; so I set IE as his default browser
-The 2nd mostly used is Chrome

Question: Is there any setting in Windows 10 which i can setup the browser as the followings:
1) Default: IE
2) 2nd: Chrome
3) 3rd: Edge

Is there a way of exporting the list of recently visited URLs within Google Chrome to an Excel spreadsheet or to a CSV file?

The Google Chrome history can be viewed by pressing CTRL+H or by browsing to the chrome://history/ URL.
Is there any way of accessing or reopening websites that had been previously opened within Google Chrome tabs before Windows 10 was restarted?

A Windows 10 user says he had around 95 tabs opened within Google Chrome before he did a restart (without exiting or closing out of Google Chrome).

Now after his computer has rebooted he has relaunched the Google Chrome web browser but none of these previously opened websites have reopened.

Is there any way of getting these websites to reopen?

Or is there any way we can go to get a list of the URLs that had been previously launched?
I am in the process of syncing our company Facebook via a third party for a press release. I went into my Chrome settings to allow popups for this website so I could connect our Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. However, when I went to connect Facebook, I keep getting a pop-up window with the below error.

Any suggestions on how I can fix this so we can connect our Facebook account as a reference for the press release?

Thanks in advance!

How do I get my web browser to be a standard size when I open it. early today when I opened my browser in IE or Chrome, it would default to a super small size. So I would have to repeatedly hit CTRL ++ to get me screen to get to a normal size. Now the size is too large and I have to repeatedly hit CTRL -- to get a much smaller size.
My partner runs thunderbird v52.7.0 and he keeps getting an error: "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete. Script: chrome://global/content/bindings/browser.xml:237"

He doesn't have chrome installed. How can I troubleshoot this? Thanks!
I use Google Chrome. I want to be able to store a group of Bookmarks that I can click and have all those pages open up.  Is there a way to do this? Via plugin?
(I used to use Firefox, which has that ability built-in.)

For example, if I am working on web development, I want the fastest way to open 4 or 5 Browser windows easily: Domain Registrar, Control Panel, CRM with my customers in it ...etc
THEN if I switch to balancing my Checkbook, I want to open Browser windows with Quicken,, my Bank's website ... etc
THEN back to Web Development ...
Went into  MS site and received message This site can’t be reached in IE and doing the same in chrome received This site is not secure (also tried Safari via mobile, same result).  This hasn't happened before.  We went into clearing caches, running cCleaner, etc., and to no avail.  Please advice.
I use the Chrome browser and every few pages or so, the page loads unstyled and requires a refresh for it to load correctly. I've cleared my cookies, cache, you name it. It seems to only be happening with Chrome because I tried using Safari and it was fine, so I know it's not a connection issue. It doesn't have any new updates either. Any ideas as to what else I could do? I prefer to use Chrome over other browsers.

  • Chrome
  • Ethernet (current)
  • Wi-Fi (tried it, still problems)
  • Mac OS
I keep running into a very annoying problem with Google Chrome. Every week or two it seems the cache gets corrupted and when I go to view sites they display with no styles applied. My work around is to clear cached images. I'm looking for a more permanent fix, so I don't have to keep working around it. I haven't found anything useful on Google's forums.

I have tried manually removing the cache files in AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache thinking there may be something corrupted in them, but the problem still recurs.

Chrome is up to date. Version 65.0.3325.181 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Has anyone figured out how to stop this annoying bug?
I'm pretty advanced when it comes to Outlook, but I can't seem to get my head around how to achieve this particular task.

The Scenario

- In Outlook, I have a standard PST File containing multiple POP3 email addresses.

- I also have an IMAP connection with Gmail saved in an OST File.  

When I look at my default data file (Outlook.PST) the Calendar shows both my own Calendar entries, as well as those set in my Gmail Calendar. Same goes for when I look at the calendar while looking at my Gmail IMAP account.

The Problem!

The Calendar is obviously syncronizing with IMAP's entries because the GMAIL calendar entries are there, however, the times are all wrong!

What should be a 9:00 am (as confirmed when I look at my Google calendar in Gmail), appears as 7:00 am in my Outlook Calendar. It's the same entry and on the correct date, it's just that the time is wrong. Appointments in my Gmail calendar are often set by a contact in the USA.

I've confirmed the time and zone is set correctly to my location in Gmail, but can't seem to nut out how to get the times to appear correctly in my Gmail Calendar (See Below)

Gmail Calendar
I've googled this problem to death and there are too many conflicting answers.

Some suggestions say you need an app. Some say it can be done but don't explain how its done adequately.

Some say you need a second calendar in Outlook.

Others say you should just use Google's Calendar and not bother, but I …

I consider this a huge shame as it's one of my favorite Bookmarks Syncronizing Utilities because it works across all browsers and does the job very well.

So, I'm now looking for an alternative that works just as well.

If you have experience with a similar service, either free or paid, please share it here.

Your recommendations appreciated.
