Web Browsers





Web browsers are applications used primarily to display documents, files and media from the Internet, identified by a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that can be a page, image, video or other file. Some browsers require the use of add-ons or extensions to safely render the information they receive; others have systems built into them to perform the same functions.

Dear expert,

I have taken over a server from someone who is no longer with the company.  The server is not yet in production and I an entrusted to get it up and running and into production.  In going through the motions and checking out various things to see where the server stands, I came across this ... whenever I click on something in IE, I get the message "Please click here if you are not redirected within a few seconds"?

The server is running Windows 2016 Essentials as the OS.  The IE version is 11.

I have researched this issue before sending in a question.  I have tried the following:

1. I have reset IE (restarted computer as instructed).
2. I have reset IE -and- clicked on delete personal settings (restarted computer as instructed).

So far nothing I do seems to work.

I was attempting to download Chrome when I this message came up.  Also, if you don't mind, in trying to download Chrome, a second issue occurs.  When I get to the download chrome website, I click on 'Download Chrome' and nothing happens.  I can scroll up and down the page, but when I click on the 'Download Chrome' link, nothing happens.  My guess is that these 2 issues are related somehow with IE's security settings.

Any assistance you can give on these 2 issues is appreciated.

Sometimes when starting Microsoft Edge browser, it reverts to its original configuration and welcome screen.

All the favorites, customizations and configurations are erased and I must do all again.

I have not identified a specific circumstance when it happens. It is not related to Windows updates or any other system modification I can isolate. It happens randomly every few days.

I am running Microsoft Edge 40.15063.674.0, Microsoft EdgeHTML 15.15063, Windows 10 Pro version 1703 build 15063.674 in a Windows Server 2016 domain network. Besides the standard group policies, I have 3 drive mappings applied by the domain group police. Everything in pretty standard.

I am running Symantec Antivirus but I don´t believe this is an anti-virus software problem.

I have seen many posts related to missing favorites after upgrading to Windows 10 but this is not my case. This machine is Windows 10 from the beginning with a clear installation.

What could be the cause of this missing configuration? This doesn´t happen to the other browsers installed on the same machine.

Do you believe this could be a config sync problem?
On this page: http://ruback-jewelry-sale.wizewebz.com/ if you click "RSVP" button a modal opens.  In Chrome and Safari the placeholders show up and if you type in the boxes you see your black text input.  

But in FireFox for some reason the placeholders are not showing and if I type in the input boxes the text does not appear.

Any ideas on the cross browser issue?
Good afternoon,

Mozilla seems to have stopped displaying images on our website.  We noticed it today, but not sure when it started.

Our website is https://ppar.com.  This is a 2012R2 Server running IIS 8.5.9600.16384.  Our websites reside on this server.  We have a valid cert for this website.  The images reside on another server running Server 2016 with IIS 10.0.14393.0.  The images server also has a valid cert.  The time on both servers is correct and both certificates have not expired.

When I try a valid link ( https://photos.ppar.com/matrixlarge/11/8120075-1.jpg ) in both Chrome and Firefox, it works in Chrome and fails in Firefox with the following error:
"An error occurred during a connection to photos.ppar.com. Invalid OCSP signing certificate in OCSP response. Error code: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_INVALID_SIGNING_CERT"

I'm beating my head against a wall...any help?

Attached images.
Good morning,
I use Google Chrome as my primary browser. I do have access to Microsoft Edge.
This past weekend I suddenly noticed that in Chrome every manually entered text or numbers are displayed with white text on a white background. I have no problems with Edge, as I am creating this using Edge. How can I change my font color?
I use Chrome and wonder what I need to install into Visual Studio Code in order to debug inside of Visual Studio Code.

I do not want to use the Chrome debugger, since I waste so much time  searching for the file to debug. I wand to set breakpoints in Visual Studio Code.

The Microsoft Edge browser's Navigation Bar Buttons not display correctly, actually the button is still clickable and functional, but just display as grey and I have no idea why.

My Internet Explorer and other browsers have no problems.

How to fix the problem of Microsoft Edge?

I have a website with an iframe who's height is calculated via some javascript on the host and iframe pages.

The script used to work perfectly, but a recent Chrome update has made the code break!

The script still works fine with Opera, Safari, Firefox and Edge and generates the iframe height as per the DOM Inspector code below:

<iframe height="2037px" id="smartframe" src="http://smartinsight.co.uk/bakersdolphin/web/brochure-request.php" scrolling="no" style="width:100%;border:none;" onload="iframeLoaded()"></iframe>

Open in new window

On chrome, the height is not injected via the javascript, so the height is assumed to be 0 and the iframe is not displayed. Therefore the DOM Inspector shows:

<iframe id="smartframe" onload="iframeLoaded()" src="http://smartinsight.co.uk/bakersdolphin/web/brochure-request.php" style="width:100%;border:none;" scrolling="no" height="0px"></iframe>

Open in new window

The javascript in the host page reads:
<script type="text/javascript">
    var myEventMethod =
        window.addEventListener ? "addEventListener" : "attachEvent";
    var myEventListener = window[myEventMethod];
    var myEventMessage =
        myEventMethod == "attachEvent" ? "onmessage" : "message";
    myEventListener(myEventMessage, function (e) {
        if (e.data === parseInt(e.data))
            document.getElementById('smartframe').height = e.data + "px";
    }, false);

Open in new window

The Iframe code is

<iframe id="smartframe" onload="iframeLoaded()" src='http://smartinsight.co.uk/bakersdolphin/web/brochure-request.php' style='width:100%;border:none;' scrolling='no'></iframe>

Open in new window

On the "iframe page" the javascript to determine the height of the frame is:

<script type="text/javascript">
    window.onload = function() {

Open in new window

The website is available to view at http://www.bakersdolphin.com/brochure-request

I'd appreciate any help in resolving the problem!

Thank you
We have a handful of HP LaserJet M602 printers that we're having some issues with. We have an application server located in a data center that can print to a number of printers in our organization but cannot print to any of these M602 printers. I've troubleshooted a couple of things like making sure the printers are using port 9001, disabling/enabling SNMP and made sure the server has the correct IPs for these printers. One thing I did notice is that if I browse to the printer's IP in Chrome or IE, I get a privacy error that I have to bypass. On all of our other printers that work fine, it takes me straight to the status page without any privacy or certificate error. Is there a setting that can be changed to bypass the privacy error to see if that resolves our issue?
I have transferred passwords between Google Chrome number of times before and it worked a treat. Recently when I tried to do this (Chrome version 61.0.3163) from Windows 7 32bit to Windows 10 64 bit it just did not work.

It seems that transferring Login data and Login data journal does not have any effect anymore.

  • there's no Import and Export button under the Manage Passwords menu so this method is not available for me
  • attempts to bring back Export settings button via Flags menu to disable Material change settings were not successful. The very much needed button did not show
  • exporting via store passwords on passwords.google.com not an option as it's blocked for security reasons
  • logging user to Chrome for Chrome to store passwords under users profile not an option for the very same reasons
  • use of third party software like Chromepass from Nirsoft not an answer since I am not after previewing but transferring passwords

Has anyone got any ideas how to achieve what I am after - full transfer for passwords between Chrome installations please?
I'm using currently the project
to check if a web portal, for example http://fontello.com/, works fine with EOT, WOFF and TTF to displaying different icons.

It looks like fonts with the Content-Type application/vnd.ms-fontobject or application/font-woff could not be used with IWebBrowser2.
In the webtraffic i could see, that the app could download the fonts, but after the download i received the error E_ABORT in the IHttpNegotiate::OnResponse handler.

The web pages works in IE, but when we disable font download in the security settings we get the same 'problem' with the IE.

I tried to enable the font download in function IInternetSecurityManager::ProcessUrlAction
(URLACTION_HTML_FONT_DOWNLOAD) without a positive result.

What i'm doing wrong?
Is there a setting in Chrome and in IE that I can access that compels the system to open up TIFF files in Windows Previewer rather than those files being automatically downloaded?
I use Visual Studio Code on Windows to code Angular, with a Node server running and Chrome as the browser.

Is there a way to set breakpoints?

I assume Chrome breakpoints work the same as with Javascript, with no issue.

I also know that Visual Studio debugs Javascript (with breakpoints) for the old Internet Explorer.

What are my options for setting breakpoints easily with Angular? I do not find Chrome easy since I need to find the file, find the line number, etc. I much prefer using Visual Studio since it's more like a WYSIWYG type of setting breakpoints.


Is there a modern browser which works with Visual Studio the way VS once suppoted Internet Explorer?

Good afternoon,

I've got an issue where I can't get Chrome extensions installed on my image, I put it into write mode, drop the change user/install into the command prompt, install the chrome extensions and it doesn't update them to version 5.

The chrome extension is the legacy browser support

We're on Xenapp 6.5

What's the best way to get chrome extensions updated so they work first time for the users, is there somewhere on the xenapp server I can put them?

After installing AVG program, I am getting the "Your Connection Is Not Private" error in Chrome when trying to open some https website (http works). However, Firefox it all works great (no problems with https).

I am using all latest versions of browsers and Windows
I'm working on a computer that would normally access centurylink webmail.

The "normal" address comes up as:

Ths address above is in a Google Chrome bookmark; so that's the initial address.
The target moves through a few addresses and the "abnormal" address comes up as:

In getting there, it moves through:



which I can't read...

The *very* strange thing about this is that I tried accessing the client's webmail from one of my own computers and got the same thing yesterday.  
CenturyTel claims to have fixed an issue and now I get the correct web page on my computer.
However, the client (who is some 50 miles away from my office), is getting these redirects on all browsers.

With some fiddling, (like removing histories, etc.) I've been able to get the …
Got a call today from a non-client hoping that I could help.  Their website address is http://www.northlakesdistributing.com/.  When you type it in in the address bar, you get to their site. When you Google north lakes distributing, the first result appears to be the correct url but it goes to a drug site.  Where is the problem?  The host?  Not sure how to fix since the site does appear when you type it in directly but the google search is messed up.
The large image of the four Canada stamps on this page is causing Firefox to tell me the page is not secure due to non-secure elements on the page:


However, in my HTML I am using:


If I put that URL in my browser, I do indeed get a "connection is not secure" message. However, if I then forcibly put https in my browser:

https://imageshack.com/a/img923/5798/vZdd8h.jpg (again)

...it does come up as secure.

I'm not sure what Image Shack is doing, it seems like they are redirecting to non-secure (http) but at the same time, if I can force https in, it looks like they have a certificate.

Is there something I can do to make this work, or do I have to contact Image Shack and find out what they are doing on their end?

Thank you!
I want to make IE my default browser.  There is plenty of information on how to do that, and I've gone through all of the basic stuff.  The problem I have is that when I go to CP -> Associate a file type or protocol with a program.  I scroll down to Protocols and try to set up IE to be associated with HTTP.  Clicking on Change program brings up a dialog with Firefox and Chrome, but no option for IE.

It must require a registry hack to fix this but I'm not sure what it would be.

The reason I want to fix this is that from Outlook if I click on a link it brings up Chrome.  Normally I could live with that but Chrome automatically changes all my settings to be come my default browser, and there doesn't seem to be any way to stop this.  I don't want to get into a discussion about whose browser is better, but it pisses me off when programs do this kind of stuff and don't give you a way to control it.  If someone knows a reg hack to stop Chrome and Firefox from doing that I'm good with that as a solution as well.

I am curious if someone knows the best way to set alerts based on certain keywords for financial filings such as 8K, 10K etc. For example, I want to create an alert such that when the following filing appears on the website and has a keyword like "PSU", I get an alert.https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1115128/000156459017019148/quot-8k_20170928.htm
