Hello experts,
We have intermittent browsing issues (accessing internal and Saas applications) in our company, and just wanted to find out for your expert advices as to how you guys go about troubleshooting it. Does it always require a 3rd party solution to determine the bottlenecks.

One of instances are both IE and chrome (both on VDI and physical machine), goes to page isn't working if it stays for a certain period of time.

Thoughts?

Thanks a lot.

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

Dear all,

One of my colleagues says that he used to see the recent open pages once he open the Internet explorer as below, but suddenly stopped.

He wants to see the pages in squares as below. I went through all options in the view and tools with no success.

Thank you in advance.

I have several Windows 10 computers with either Adobe Acrobat Standard or Professional DC installed (Volume Licenses).  When I open any pdf with Acrobat, I can see all the tools on the right side.  If I open the same document or any other document via an Internet browser (IE), the only tools displayed are Comment and Fill & Sign.  I spent two hours on the phone with Adobe Support yesterday trying to explain this issue even though they could actually see the issue via a remote session.  There was a significant language barrier that I did not want to deal with.  So the call was a complete waste of time.  

So what I am saying is if I view any file within IE, I only see two tools: comment and fill & Sign.  If I download the same file to the computer and open it up via acrobat I see all the tools. I looked over all Acrobat settings and they appear fine, but I am still stumped as to why not all the basic adobe tools appear.

I am saving an excel 2010 spreadsheet (XLSX) to HTM page but the hidden columns in the spreadsheet are no longer hidden when displaying the HTM.
I managed to get the hidden columns to hide by changing the style to style="Display:None" but this no longer works for some reason.

Is there any way for me to re-hide the columns when saving as a HTM file?

Hi Team,

Need to detect internet explorer browser version when viewing in compatibility mode.

I was trying to use feature detection for the above and so used modernizer(js library) but unfortunately, it is not working. Is there any way through which I could do this feature detection.

Appreciate your response.

Thank You

After joining a workstation to a new domain, IE will no longer prompt to save passwords for any website.  All options in the AutoComplete Settings are checked (none are greyed out).  I checked the GPM, and the only GPOs that affect IE are setting the homepage, and adding a server to the trusted intranet zone.  Roaming Profiles are enabled, as well as folder redirection for Desktop, Documents and Favorites.  IE loads websites, can login to secured sites without issue, and functions normally.

Server is Windows 2016
Affected workstations are Windows 7 and Windows 8
Internet Explorer is at ver 11

Any help is appreciated.  Thank you.

I am trying to reach the following site https://competency.lww.com/cc/login.do  I looked up the IP and it's 69.84.140.125 however, it's timing out.  I am behind a watchguard firewall and I've added it every place I could think of and it's still not resolving.  I have a wireshare but I can't really read it.  If I try this on my guest network outside of my firewall it works just fine.

I try to automate some handling on a webpage. I have read all the articles I could find, but it just does not fit.

This is partial the webpage:

Transaction page
This is the HTML beneath:

<div class="rgWrap rgArrPart2">
<a title="Go to Next Page" href="javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00j','')">Volgende</a>
<input type="submit" name="ctl003" value=" " title="Next Page" class="rgPageNext" /> 
<a title="Go to Last Page" href="javascript:__doPostBack('ctl004','')">Laatste</a>
<input type="submit" name="ctl005" value=" " title="Last Page" class="rgPageLast" />

Open in new window

"Volgende" en "Laatste" are Dutch for "Next" and "Last".

The code which I try to build needs to click on the "Volgende" so I get the next page with records.

I have tried the following code:

GetElementById():
 
   IE.Document.GetElementById("ctl00j").Click()

    GetElementsByTagName() and filter by value:

    Set oInputs = IE.Document.GetElementsByTagName("input")
    For Each elm In oInputs
        If elm.Value = "Go to Next Page" Then
            elm.Click
            Exit For
        End If
    Next

Open in new window

   GetElementsByClassName():

    For Each elem In IE.Document.GetElementsByClassName("rgPageNext")
        If elem.innerText = "Go to Next Page" Then
            elem.Focus
            elem.Click
        End If
    Next

Open in new window

   GetElementsByTagName() and filter by class attribute:

    For Each a In IE.document.getElementsByTagName("a")
        If a.GetAttribute("class") = "rgPageNext" Then
            a.Click
            Exit For
        End If
    Next

Open in new window

   GetElementsByTagName() and filter by title attribute:

    For Each a In IE.document.getElementsByTagName("a")
      If a.getAttribute("title") = "Go to Next Page" Then
        a.Click
        Exit For
      End If
    Next

Open in new window

The first approach gives this error message:

    Script: K:\temp\TT\mftt.vbs
    Line: 37
    Char: 2
    Error: Object required: 'IE.Document.getElementByID(...)'
    Code: 800A01A8
    Source: Microsoft VBScript runtime error

Open in new window

The other attempts are not giving error messages but also no reaction on the link to click. I'm missing here the OnClick event. With other links in this project the OnClick event was present. I can't change the HTML, so I'm stuck.

UPDATE1: I have added the script file so far. I have not attempt to build the logic. First aim is to read all the fields and click the right buttons. If that is successful I will build the iteration process,
UPDATE2: due to privacy reasons I can't give you access to the site. I have added the DOM from the page and removed any names.

Hello EE,

Our company has an online training video (powered through Cornerstone) that is unable to play sound when first loaded.  The sound icon embedded in the video is turned off by default.  We have to manually turn the icon on and then the sound works.  If closing the browser and reopening the training video, the sound is once again turned off. This seems to randomly be occurring on different machines, including my own.  

I've tested several other test machines, and the sound is enabled from the beginning and works without problem.

This only occurs in Internet Explorer v11, our company's default browser.  It works fine on Chrome and Firefox.

I've tried different Dell laptop models and Windows OS (7, 1607, 1709) versions, can't find a pattern.

I've tried the following so far:

a.      Added website to compatibility view, no change.
b.      Deleted all browsing history, no change.
c.      Reset IE settings/Deleted personal settings, no change.
d.      Website domain is added as a Trusted Site in IE.
e.      Checked the following registry key…HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main; PlaySounds was set to 0, I set it to 1, no change.
f.      I imported the Main registry keys from a PC where the audio works, onto my PC, no change.
g.      IE > Tools > Active X Filtering is turned off.
h.    Uninstalled audio driver, tried both generic and model specific drivers.
i.     Deleted Flash player browsing data and settings.
j.     Ran IE v11 with all add-ins disabled.

Not sure where…

Everyone in our organisation has a Delve profile, and we want to link directly to these from other locations or documents. The first difficulty we had was in coming up with a link that we could easily modify/replicate - the standard form url looks something like:

https://nam.delve.office.com,
https://nam.delve.office.com/*** Email address is removed for privacy ***&v=profiledetails

This will open from an internet page or a website, but if I try to link from a Word document, not only does it not work, but it also gives me an enormously frustrating error message which consists of a cartoon cat and a correlation id, also i can see that the link got redirected,

Redirected as : https://nam.delve.office.com/Error.aspx?correlationId=7eecefc7-7f0e-458d-a66d-47387873a125
Something went wrong :(
Correlation Id: 7eecefc7-7f0e-458d-a66d-47387873a125

In Internet Explorer, after adding "https://nam.delve.office.com" link to trusted site resolved the issue, but when the Chrome is set as default browser we still have the issue.
Does anyone have a solution to this issue, kindly help me as soon as possible

Thanks,
Naveen

Chrome's default bookmarks display seems like a mess to me.

Need an extension to better display / navigate bookmarks that DOES NOT require me to share my bookmarks with the platform.

So that the re-organization and spiff new display is generated on my side rather thatn a bookmark services side.

Want an extension which uses code run on my machine rather than sharing all my bookmarks over to the extension, them repackaging them, and sending them back to me in the new format.

A privacy-first bookmark organizer.

Anything like this made / available?

One of our clients is running an application under APP-V. Their app invokes our ActiveX Client which is essentially a container for an IE browser control; the webpage that occupies it carries a link that executes "window.open" (jQuery). Users are reporting 'Class not registered' errors.

I've seen a plethora of 'solutions', e.g. re-registering DLLs, running SFC, checking APP-V setting Allow All COM objects to interact with the local system, but no luck yet. This is on Win7 and Win 10 machines. Alas, I have limited knowledge of APP-V.

This error does not occur outside of APP-V.

I am running the ATT Speed Test (http://speedtest.att.com/speedtest/) in Internet Explorer and Firefox.

The download test works great (54 Mbps) . . . but the upload test (20 Mbps) appears then all of a sudden this message:

"Error:  Test Cancelled due to browser tab switch"

What does that mean?

I was recently asked to add some kind of pulsing animation type of effect to some icons on a Real Estate site that I've been maintaining, as the client felt that the icons weren't noticeable enough and that we needed to find a way to make them stand out more.  Although I was pleased with the end result, I was disappointed to learn that the animation does not work in Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, or Safari.  Currently, it appears to only be working in Firefox, Chrome, and Opera.  

You can see an example of the animation effect that I applied on this page (just be sure to use either Firefox, Chrome or Opera):

https://staging.royalpalm.com/property/1900-royal-palm-way/

This effect was achieved with this relatively simple CSS code snippet:

.single-property ul.media-tabs-list li:nth-child(1) a { 
	animation: pulse1 2s infinite;
	animation-delay:0ms;
}

.single-property ul.media-tabs-list li:nth-child(2) a { 
	animation: pulse2 2s infinite;
	animation-delay:250ms;
}

.single-property ul.media-tabs-list li:nth-child(3) a { 
	animation: pulse3 2s infinite;
	animation-delay:500ms;
}

@keyframes pulse1 {
  0% {
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6);
  }
  50% {
    background: rgb(0,174,239, 1);

  }
  100% {
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6);
  }	
}

@keyframes pulse2 {
  0% {
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6);
  }
  50% {
    background: rgb(0,174,239, 1);
  }
  100% {
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6);
  }	
}

@keyframes pulse3 {

Unable to play videos in RDP session.

I administer a site that uses multiple RDS servers. The servers run as VMS under HyperV or Xen.  They all run Server 2008R2. Clients are mostly Wyse C10LE's with a few PCs.

The problem I have is that video content does not show in Internet Explorer11. If I got to Youtube and try to play a video, I just get "An error occurred, please try again later". Chrome works fine.

I have tried:
1. Using a Win10 PC instead of a Wyse client, no difference.
2. Toggled "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering" under advanced IE options, (and rebooted), no difference.
3. Added YouTube to the trusted sites list, no difference.
4. Logging on with an admin account, no difference.

Any ideas?

I am trying to learn how to program navigation of a  Windows Folder using Explorer.

As a test project, I want to use the IWebBrowser2 object to select a specific file in a previously opened folder.

In other words, I want it to be similar to the DOS command line  < explorer /select,"C:\aatmpK\test.xlsm" >
the following code comes close, but the .navigate command is not exactly right.

An Excel vba solution would be ideal, but any solution that uses the IWebBrowser object would be OK.

can anybody help?
 
Sub test 

Dim FolderPath, FullPath, PathOpen
FolderPath = "C:\aatmpK"
FullPath = "c:\aatmpk\test.xlsm"

Dim WasFound As Boolean, i As Long, ExplorerNoDups As String
Dim wndw As Object

  With CreateObject("shell.application")
    For Each wndw In .Windows
     On Error Resume Next
        Dim IsFolder As Boolean
        IsFolder = False
        IsFolder = TypeName(wndw.document) Like "IShellFolderViewDual*"
        
     On Error GoTo 0
     If IsFolder Then
        If Not TypeName(wndw) Like "IWebBrowser*" Then Stop
        
        PathOpen = Replace(wndw.document.Folder.Self.path, "s:", "myserver\myshare", 1, 1, 1)
        If LCase(FolderPath) = LCase(PathOpen) Then
            
             wndw.navigate FullPath  ' < this does not seem to do what I want

IE 11, in WIn 10, 1803 attempts to open, but after a few seconds of trying to open, it just closes by itself.  It just started doing this a day or so ago.
Really weird.  Firefox and Chrome work fine.  Edge works fine as well.

Any ideas?
