I'm suddenly having problems downloading files. I've tried both Firefox and Chrome. The following is an example of the error I'm getting from the Chrome browser:

The onset of the problem seems to coincide with a recent Windows update. That's pure speculation, of course, but it's the only thing I can think of that has changed on the system.

Using Firefox I still get asked for username and password after saving username and password when trying to access local SSRS reports. I can see the credentials on the passwords and security section. I am running the latest version of Firefox and we do have an SSL certificate.

I was customising a banner on my client's homepage around a week ago, very basic additional CSS on a qode wordpress theme to get the banner looking the way I wanted, achieved that, saved my work and closed my laptop down.

When I got home a short while later, I visited her site on Firefox and the homepage was a mess! Her logo was gone and the theme logo was in its place, the buttons on her homepage had lost all their styling, the banner I was impressed with looked awful and not like the final version I saved, the footer columns widget content had all shifted out of alignment to the left as well as various other styling issues.

I know this is clearly CSS related but error logs are referencing PHP issues, nothing mentioned about CSS and PHP is something I know absolutely nothing about. I've copied and pasted some of the errors and spent some time trying to figure out what they mean but her site has been like this for too long now for me to learn enough PHP to understand these errors and determine whether they could be related to my issue.

Out of desperation, I deleted my theme and reinstalled as I had similar issues following a major update recently and hoped following those steps might solve the problem this time, but no luck.

If anyone has the time and understanding of PHP to scan through my error codes and tell me whether or not this could be related to the problems I've had I would be extremely grateful...

VMWare Client Integration Pluginv6.0 (For Google Chrome Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit))
on a
Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (64-bit) PC.

What Works
- ISO upload to VMWare vCloud Director Catalog works using Internet Explorer 11 only (does not work with Chrome and Firefox) on the PC.

Workaround in place - Console Content Access works for all the same VMs via a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Server from within the same environment (setup by someone else not contactable)
(This Server will be decommissioned soon - so need the console working on the PC before the server gets decommissioned)

What Does not work
– VMWare vCloud Director WebMKSConsole Content Access – for any VMs – using any Web Browser (IE, Firefox or Chrome)

Get the following screen – doesn’t matter whether the URL is DNS Name or via IP Address.

Troubleshooting done
-      Added DNS Name to local host file on PC (which made the ISO upload work)
-      Reinstalled VMWare Client Integration Plugin v6.2 , v6.0 and v5.6 after uninstalling, reinstalling and rebooting a number of times.
-      Added Firewall Exclusions on Local PC for all profiles (Domain, Private and Public)
-      Installed the Valid Certificate for FQDN in Automatically Selected Store and the Trusted Root Certificate Store.
-      Tried Troubleshooting described on various VMWare Website and Forums – some were unclear.

Been fighting an issue that occurs at a client site. Using IE 11 the websites load quickly (they are on fiber 100 meg up/down), however when they login to the site it can be from 45 seconds to 3 minutes before the site comes up. Using Chrome it only takes about 20 seconds to login. I tried Firefox to see what it was like and it took 3-5 minutes.
I tried the sites from our office and IE took from 1 to 1 1/2 minutes to load, but 20 seconds with Chrome.
They have Windows 7 and Windows 10 PC's and it acts the same on all. When they first contacted me I jumped to the conclusion that it was DNS without asking enough questions to discover it occurred on only 4 sites and they were ones they log into for their dealers.

Looking for any guidance from experts.

And yes I would tell them to use Chrome, but they refuse to use anything but IE
I am trying to convert from Firefox (after maybe 10 - 12 years) to Chrome.

Is there a way in Chrome to put a left sidebar containing bookmarks?

Due to the concerns about the Momo Challenge kids will search for on YouTube I need to block these sites and searches in our school network. I see how to block them in Internet Explorer using Group Policy but that seems to be specific to IE. How can I block them from Firefox and Google Chrome?

We use Windows Server 2008R2 and a combination of Windows 7 and Windows 10 client computers.

Thank you.

Hi Team,

Can any help me to solbve this issue.
We're successfully using an Internal CA but have an issue with a single application that requires internal clients to use Firefox. Firefox does not like the certificate produced by the internal CA, and I believe this is due to AlternateSignatureAlgorithm = 1 being set on the CA.

The issue we have is described here:

Windows PKI certificates not trusted due to disabled insecure algorithm.

and here:

Based on these articles, the solution appears to be

  1. Set AlternateSignatureAlgorithm =  0 in CAPolicy.inf
  2. Update the reg value of the same name here: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Certsvc\Configuration\CANAME\CSP to be 0
  3. Renew and resign all certificates

This seems straightforward, but I am concerned as to the impact of doing this on existing services that require certificates. For example, we have numerous Direct Access clients - if their existing Direct Access connections fail due to a change on the CA, then they would not be able to connect in to pick up a renewed/resigned certificate.

Is anyone able to advise if this would be the case, or if we can make the changes without affecting existing services? If we did make the change and this happened, is there any …
Is there any working solution to block AJAX popup divs in Chrome and Firefox?
Dear Experts, I have a weird problem with RDweb and Outlook.

1). Firefox is opened fullscreen on the screen.
2). Above Firefox is Outloko fullscreen aswell.
3). When I hover my mouse over a email and stop moving for 2-4 second. Outlook minimizes
4). At the moment I click or move my mouse again. Outlook jumps back to full screen.

All of this is happening via RDweb.

I may think that this pop-up has something to do with it.
I have a customer who switched their website over to SquareSpace and use a calendar that derives its information from a Google Calendar - everything was working fine until about a week ago when only one person can see the calendar on their system - and only on Firefox, not IE or Chrome.  Other people get a permissions error or says it cannot display in the frame.  I have had them try different browsers, clearing cache/history but same issue.  The link is:
I do not want my users to right in a iFrame and save the file onto the  computer.

I was able to control it on Chrome web browser but only version 60 and 64 versions of Chrome. I am able to right click in the iframe and save  the document in Internet Explorer and FIrefox browsers.

How can I disable right click in an iframe that display a PDF file or is there any way to ensure that the PDF file being viewed can disable the save/print options.
My domain a 2008 R2 server on a 192.168.0.X.
I can nearly view all webpages but there are a few that have recently started to give errors when I try to access them.
I get the error in firefox or similar on other browsers:
We can’t connect to the server at
If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

    Try again later.
    Check your network connection.
    If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

I suspect it may be a DNS issues bu tsince I can view any other webpage just a few specific how can I tell?
Hi everybody,

I have only one Exchange 2016 CU9 server with all roles. It's working fine.

I have one problem with OWA from external. The external IP of the Exchange server is a NAT in internal server IP.

When I'm in external, if I go on the OWA, I have the form that ask me for the username and password.
I enter the credentials and I have this error. Same problem with Firefox and Chrome.  

If I click on "Refresh the page", owa is displayed and working fine.

I did a lot of tests.
If I did the same thing but i'm waiting 2-3 second before enter my credentials, owa is weel and immediately displayed. It's like there's a timeout.

I don't have problem with Outlook and autodiscover, only this "timeout" with owa.

Do you have an idea ?
Many thanks for your help.
Best regards

Bandwidth much more narrow in Firefox than other browsers..?
When making a bandwidth check with or from Edge and Chrome I get 110-125 Mbps in download, while only 15-40 Mbps in Firefox.
PC with Win10 (up to date with Windows Update) and Firefox (also up to date).

No plugins/addons in Firefox to limit bandwidth. No difference when starting Firefox in safe mode either...

Any ideas?

.delete-for-reals input {
  vertical-align: middle;
.delete-for-reals .rsuite-message {
  vertical-align: -2px;

Open in new window

Hbr file:

{{#if view.isReferenced}}
		<p class="delete-for-reals">

				{{icon model=view.trashCan size=20}}
				{{view Ember.Checkbox checked=view.deleteMode id="delete-for-reals"}}

	.rsuite-message {
		vertical-align: -2px;

Open in new window

So totally the id available in .css, .hbr and .less files.

Please help me on this. Thanks in advance.
When a stored response is used to satisfy a request without validation, my browser is not showing me the HTTP reponse header field: "Age"?

Just take a simple test.html file, which is chacheable by default. Now visit the page 2 times, so the second time the file is shown directly from cache without validation.

Firefox shows me response headers like this:

Date: Mon, 12 Mar 2018 16:05:18 GMT
Server: Apache/2.4.17 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.1e-fips PHP/5.6.16
Last-Modified: Mon, 12 Mar 2018 12:24:12 GMT
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 143
Content-Type: text/html

Open in new window

But why Firefox does not show me the "Age" header field?


When a stored response is used to satisfy a request without validation, a cache MUST generate an Age header field

And see:

However, lack of an Age header field does not imply the origin was contacted, since the response might have been received from an HTTP/1.0 cache that does not implement Age.

A browser's cache is not HTTP/1.0, so the response headers must contain an Age header field. Firefox is not showing me "Age"?

Are browsers only showing the response and request headers of the server? But if that's the case then they had to show no response headers at all, because there was no response from server in case of "200 OK (cached)"?

So I don't understand this? What's the logic behind this?

P.S. The example was about Firefox, but for example Chrome is doing the same.
I just did a test in Firefox. I have an PHP file (without sessions). The reponse headers do not contain a validator or any other caching related headers, except:

Cache-Control: no-cache

Open in new window

When pressing the back button in Firefox followed by the forward button, the file is coming from cache when coming back on that page.

With "Cache-Control: no-cache" (and no validators), usually you would expect a request to the origin server, resulting in a "200 OK" response (NOT from cache).

I know that there is some different caching behavior with the back / forward button. See:

6.  History Lists

User agents often have history mechanisms, such as "Back" buttons and
history lists, that can be used to redisplay a representation
retrieved earlier in a session.

The freshness model (Section 4.2) does not necessarily apply to
history mechanisms.  That is, a history mechanism can display a
previous representation even if it has expired.

This does not prohibit the history mechanism from telling the user
that a view might be stale or from honoring cache directives (e.g.,
Cache-Control: no-store).

Here they are saying that the freshness model does not necessarily apply to history mechanisms. So when using max-age=0 or something like that (Expires), I can understand that the back and forward button can serve stale responses.

But no-cache is not part of the freshness model or is it? …
