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.

I want to setup a 'do not block flash on google chrome' policy via GPO.  

Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\PluginsAllowedForUrls\1 = "https://www.example.com"


There is a msi google chrome installer GPO in Computer Configuration/Policies/Software Settings/Software Installation.

My questions are,
 1) should I create a new policy for the flash?  
2) Or add it to the installer policy/MSI?
3) I am not sure where to add the registry tweak above, in Preferences?  

Could someone give me a basic road map as to how to implement this.

Hi, At least 4 times a day, Chrome hangs and locks up my laptop. It always happens when I'm working on Chrome, and open a new tab, or scroll down, or am doing something with Chrome open. It says not responding, and I can't open any other programs or the task manager. It stays locked for almost a minute.

I've cleared my cache, I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome. I only have two extensions running, Classic Cache Killer and View Image Info (properties).

Thoughts?

I submitted the following a few days ago:

"One of our users has had an issue where his computer will restart unexpectedly, and upon restarting, the settings page in chrome for incompatible applications opens up. The first time it happened, the application listed was an Intel driver, which I applied an update to. It has since happened several times, and still shows the Reset and Clean up page, but now with no incompatible applications show up. The user has not been doing anything out of the ordinary, and there are no windows error messages, save for an unexpected shutdown flag in the logs (ID 6008)."

This past Monday, we updated the version of Chrome that was being used, and asked that the client notify us if the issue persisted. This morning, it happened again. We are trying to convince the client to use another browser for a few days to see if the issue is Chrome, but we are not sure how to resolve the issue whether or not it is Chrome causing the problem.

I am going crazy . I thought I had submitted this question yesterday and for some reason I don't see it here. This is my problem. On MS Edge whenever the Favorites bar is turned OFF the favorites still show up . The strange thing you can see from the images posted here what I am referring to. Favorites bar turned off nothing shows when the 2 tabs with the links I chose as it supposed to. Scenario 2-When opening another tab the top sites  tab opens up and the favorites there are 2 there shows up even with the favorites bar is OFF. Lastly when I close Edge you get a warning about closing all tabs . If I check it and later on I decide to have it come up again is that something that can be done and if so how?

Win7Pro/64. Firefox latest version. Friend was copying some data from my machine and using Firefox. Next day, the Firefox screen was in the middle of my dual monitor setup, 1/3 on one side of bezels, rest on the other. I've read about this problem on single monitors where only a third or half of the FF screen comes up. I tired all the suggestions - deleting the two files always mentioned, looking for something in the FF profile that might affect this. I can grab and move the screen, but the position will not stick after FF shutdown and restart - only half the window shows, or in my case, window split between two monitors. Again, I've tried all the Mozilla forum suggestions save a reset/refresh. This does not happen with any other program.

Hi, I didn't realize that uninstalling Chrome while it was the default browser would cause a problem, I was just trying to fix an issue where it kept hanging. So I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome.

I've gone into default programs and set chrome as the default, rebooted, etc. Same issue. And if I close chrome and stop all its processes, then make internet explorer the default program, I get the same error when I click on a link in an outlook email.

Advice to fix this? Thanks.

Learn the fundamentals of the popular programming language JavaScript so that you can explore the realm of web development.

Can anyone explain the best practices in regards to link labelling specific to usability/accessibility best practices. A 3rd party who do some basic maintenance of our website have numerous image based links on the homepage which simply state "click here". If you hover over the link it does give a bit more detail on where the links takes the user but I am still not sure that is sufficient, and the label itself should be meaningful, but I am trying to emphasis the risk in them using this kind of practice. I have seen these guidelines, but I cannot find anything specific in WCAG to link labelling best practices to assist users with disabilities e.g. visual impairments. I want to draw out the types of user this type of configuration could impact - to make them improve and use more appropriate labelling.

Just saying it 'looks poor' isn't having much weight in the argument.

is there anyway that I can move a specific favorites folder from Edge or Chrome bookmarks to my Desktop versus exporting it to another browser? I can manage my favorites a lot easier and I can do more things with them if the folder was on my Desktop versus being in the favorites folder Edge or Chrome.

Also where is the default location for Favorites folder in Edge and Chrome?

Hello,

How do you revert back to a previous version of Google Chrome?

Sometime yesterday I noticed a change in the appearance of Google Chrome, in that the address bar now has a light blue border as shown in the following screenshot:

My current version of Google Chrome:

However, sometime later I went to join some friends playing a game at a website called slither.io (where players compete as snakes of different colors and sizes). However, after beginning to play, I noticed that the game image was jiggling or shaking to the point that I had to turn it off. The frame of the window itself does not move but the entire image (background and players) trembles as you might expect a picture on the wall to tremble during an earthquake.

The shaking movement is accompanied by a significant lag. I have experienced lag issues in the past but they always manifest as a sudden freeze for 2-3 seconds followed by a catch-up burst to put everything into its real-time position.

Interestingly, the shaking and lag become much worse by going into a congested area (ie the more snakes in the field of view, the worse the movement), and is almost nonexistent if you are in the outskirts with no one else around.

I've searched Google quite a bit for a solution and have tried each of the following:

• Zoom in/out
• Restart Chrome
• Restart computer
• Empty the Chrome history
• Chrome > Show advanced settings > scroll down to…

Have a small network of windows computers and a few servers.  The boss wants to be able to watch tv using diynetwork.com or hgtv.com (Same TV provider, different site).  If you go to watch live TV and click the play icon that is overlayed the video or click the "sign in to your provider" button at the top right, nothing happens at all.  This happens on all workstations and servers on the network.  No other DNS or internet issues exist.  I've tried Edge, IE, Chrome, and Firefox and all have the same issue.  I've put chrome in guest mode (Shift+Ctrl+N), and still has the issue.   I've checked security settings, java, activex, compatibility view, cleared temporary files.  I've temporarily disabled all security on the Sonicwall and I've checked group policy but nothing has worked.  Any ideas?

I'm trying to figure out if I can detect when a specific modal (see attached image) is displayed using pure JS (no jQuery). If you go to  https://www.bankofthewest.com/personal-banking/checking-accounts.html in Chrome, Incognito mode (or just clear your cookies in standard mode, you see the "State Selector" modal show. Once a State is selected and submitted the page will close the modal and refresh. Is there any way to detect if this modal is being displayed and if so, how?

Thanks!

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 have had a few people tell me that when trying to visit a site using safari on their iPhones, they get an error that says:

Safari cannot open the page because the server cannot be found.

I asked other people to test on their iPhones and they said it works fine. After asking Google about this it seems that the answer is always something to do with the phone itself. But, it is not realistic to ask everyone with an iPhone to check this setting, and check that setting in order to try use the website.

Does anyone have any suggestions regarding this?

I am working to create a login prompt and I do not want the browser to offer the remember username and password option for the user. I am using a text box for the username field and a password box for the password field. Anytime I use a password box the browser prompts the option whether to remember username and password or not. I would like my users to type in those information each time they login. Is there any way I could use a text box to accept password and mask the characters in that textbox as a password character so that the browser does not prompt the remember username and password option?

Hi Guys,

I need to apply a Google Chrome extension to Group Policy.
The directions are as follows, but I am unable to find correct path/container.

"Next step is to open Group Policy Management Console and Edit the group policy object."
"Navigate to User Configuration > Policies > Google > Google Chrome > Extensions."

Any ideas are welcome ...
