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.

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);
  }	
}

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
             WasFound = True
             Exit For
        End If

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?

I setup an NVR to do live streaming video from camera, using H.265 encoding format. When I open the NVR from web browsers (Microsoft Edge, IE, Chrome), I wouldn't be able to see the video. Only if I changed to H.264 streaming, I could see the video.

Does it mean the web browsers cannot support H.265 encoding? If there is a way, how can I make the browsers support H.265?

Thank you!

Still attempting to lock down any access to the Internet (via IE 11) on my Windows Server 2008 R2 which I use to host RemoteApps via RDP.  I have everything pretty well locked down now, but users can still browse, download files, and actually run programs on my server from the web using the "CTRL+U" key combination.  I've been able (thru GPO and Windows Registry entries) to lock down CTRL+O, CTRL+P, CTRL+T, CTRL+S, F1, "right-clicking" to "view source" (i.e. right-click is totally inoperable).  The only apparent "chink in my armor" is the CTRL+U key combination which displays the web page source and provides an option to "Save..." which opens the Windows Standard Save As Dialog box, which, in turn, allows the user to type in any program (e.g. CMD.EXE which opens up a command prompt).  Any help would definitely be appreciated....after resolving all the other key combinations, this last one is driving me crazy!

Hello! I have a problem with Windows 7 Pro fully patched using IE 11. I had an issue where I would open Chrome but the page wouldn't come up. The process appeared, but the window didn't open. I reinstalled Chrome and that was fine. After that, IE would always give me "Page Can't Be Displayed". I tried clearing the cache entirel, resetting it entirely, as well as reinstalling to the same result. I also tried manually setting my DNS to and external (8.8.8.8) on the network adapter and setting the domain to my domain in the Append These DNS Suffixes under the advanced section. Now this worked. I then decided to try reinstalling the network adapter driver which of course resets the settings. IE still worked after that. So today IE is back to Page Cannot Be Displayed. I tried the last solution again and this time it didn't have an effect. Has anyone had this problem or any alternate solutions? I also tried a system restore to a previous time when things works.

We have Windows 10 Enterprise on various versions 1703, 1709 and 1803.  We have an external website we use which was recently updated by a third party.  When we log into the site, some features do not work as the code appears to be newer and IE defaults to document type 7 on mostof our machines.  If we log in and switch the emulation to IE 11 once logged in, it works fine but this is only a temporary fix.   Some of our machines work fine and others don't.  We have ruled out Windows updates based on the fact that machine with exact same updates, some work some don't. We have cleared caches from within IE and reset IE from within IE with no luck of the application working.  We have also removed "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer" in an attempt to reset IE but it doesn't appear to fully reset.  On further testing, we have found that if we create another user profile on the same machine, it works fine so this may be related to the user profile.  Another thing noticed is it may be related to using Microsoft tools to pull and plant profiles on computer rebuild but we have not made this determination 100% but new builds without copying profile seem to be the ones working fine.  Are there any other suggestions to try or any other way to fully reset IE for a specific user profile?  Unfortunately, we have hundred of machine and while we need a solution, we would also like to be able to automate it as creating new profiles on every machine would mean complete reconfiguration of …

Here is a full url for the redirect - www6.widgetserver.com

Machine is running 64 bit Windows 7 home premium. I have reinstalled network drivers, did the win sick reset, emptied cache, but internet explorer is extremely slow to load pages. Program will open, but content takes a while to load. Ping times are about 36 ms & speed tests show nearly 300 mbps. Computer is connected to Comcast modem via Ethernet cable & other devices all are fine, but are also connected via wireless.
What else could it be?

I have a user who is running WIN 7 IE 11.  From time-to-time when they browse to a website that requires them to supply their domain credentials the dialogue box that generates contains credentials from a previous user and they must always select "Use another account".  I've reviewed Windows Credentials Manager but that doesn't contain the account to remove.  What we've noticed is that there's no Windows profile for the previous user.  Its as if they remotely accessed the PC (possibly someone from the local Helpdesk), supplied their credentials, and now IE has them cached somewhere - I'm just not sure where.

My next step was to review the registry and see what pops up.

Any thoughts?

I am having problems with Microsoft CRM crashing when my user does an activity. I am trying to capture her movements so that I can show Microsoft the issue. I found that inside the IE you can go into the F12 >> Network and track user movements. Would this work and would this be the most effective method?

All, we have an issue where Internet Explorer opens and closes no errors. No matter if I run it as another ID or admin it opens then closes. We have tried everything. I am opened to suggestions. I always give points to all if you have a good suggestion. :)

Running Internet Explorer 11 on a Windows 7 Professional 32-bit platform.  Recently, Internet Explorer began closing by itself, a few moments after launching.  The Event Log showed a module fault at kernelbase.dll    No other applications were affected.  I tried various approaches to fixing this, including restoring a saved disk image, and performing an in-place Windows upgrade/repair, but the issue persisted.  If I logged on with a different user profile, or used Windows Safe Mode, the behavior did not happen.  Eventually I restored Internet Explorer's settings to default.  That solved the problem of the browser self-closing.  However, when I visit my own website, now, most of the page content doesn't appear in the browser.  Instead, there is just the page background.  If I scroll down, the page will scroll indefinitely.  This doesn't happen with Internet Explorer 11 on a Windows 7 notebook computer, nor does it happen with Google Chrome on my desktop.   I'm not sure what I've done, or removed from Internet Explorer on my desktop, but I'd like some guidance about how to remedy it.

When I try to upload a file to attach in one website opened in IE, the file upload sub window always opens in Tiles View.  And small window.

I change it to List View, enlarge the Windows, then attach file and close.
Next time I do this, it goes back to Tile View, small window again.  If I used Chrome, these settings stay.
Is there anyway I can change this to default to List view with enlarged sub window?

Please advise.
