I am using an application in Chrome and html code displays with tags, etc. If I go out of this option and in again the webpage has displayed but can anybody tell me if this is a setting somewhere in Chrome perhaps that causes it to load the html text first?
Thanks,

I use Windows for my computers, but have both an iPhone and iPad connected to my Yahoo email account.  All of a sudden (as of four days ago) my email stopped coming into my iPhone and iPad.  Everything else seems to be working.  At the bottom of the screen it gives me the following message:  "Updated Saturday.  Account Error:  Yahoo!  Details" ... but when I click on "Details" nothing happens.  They are connected to our WiFi network.  What could have caused this, and how do I fix it?

Thanks,

Phil

I have a question about chrome books.  Do they always need to be connected to the internet?  For example, if I am working on a file somewhere I don't have internet, would I be able to work on a spreadsheet and then it saves once its back online?  Also, can Windows applications be installed in any way such as Office 365 apps?

I have a Wordpress site on a LAMP Stack running in AWS. I have Let's Encrypt running to automatically update the TLS Certificate and I re-direct all traffic to the "www." instance for the purposes of SEO.

The site works as expected for EVERY browser EXCEPT Safari. What I mean is that I've tried Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Vivaldi and Internet Explorer. I made not changes to the Server itself and I'm a little perplexed as to what happened. Below is a screenshot from some testing I was doing using BrowserStack. This seems to be happening on all Safari browsers back to iOS7.

Any idea what's going on here? Is this fixable from my end?

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

           Recently, I have been receiving a message on the television screen from my PlayStation 4 (PS4) whenever I go to YouTube.com which reads as follows:  "We will stop supporting this browser soon.  For the best experience please update your browser".  Whenever I go to the link to update the browser, I have three options:  Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera.  That said, I am uncertain of the default browser used by the PS4.  As such, I simply do not know which one to choose.  Given this information, could someone provide some suggestions and guidance with respect to updating the PS4 browser?  

            Thanks so much in advance for any help given to this question.

I've downloaded the latest MS Edge because it seems quite good.  I had previously been using Chrome.

I'm able to set my home page to google.com, which I want because I use gmail and my contacts and calendar are all also at google.

Edge will go to this, but only when I have one instance and only with my initial page.  All other times it goes to some MS page (not specified in the address bar, but certainly the bing home page).

Is there anyway to get all tabs in all sessions to go to something besides bing.com?

i am using a billing web application that appears to be based upon adobe flash player, it has the layout of a frame of menu options to the left and whichever you click populates the main area of the page with data. I was hoping to find a way to essentially download the data from the left frame, but there is no obvious was of selecting the text, I assume as its based on flash player. Currently viewing the app on chrome on windows 10, but can you think of any way to select or extract the data on a flash app?

Hi,

I am working on C# MVC application.

I have payment integrated in my website. For payments, we call payment url which is loaded in iFrame.
We have no control on the form which opens in iFrame, as it captures credit card details.

Now, once user does the payment by clicking submit button in payment form, which (submit form) is in iFrame.

After successful/unsuccessful transaction we are receiving response in handler page.

After getting response in handler page we are losing session of our web application.

It works well in chrome but does not work in IE, Firefox.

What we should do so that we should not loose our session once the redirect happen.

Also, we see Chrome has same id before and after confirmation done.

But other browser gives us different session id's when returns from payment page.

Please advise the solution.

I have below configuration in my web.config already.
<httpCookies httpOnlyCookies="true" requireSSL="false" />

Hi,

Some users are seeing a Not secure flag in Chrome when viewing a site I host that has a secure cert on it.  The warning is 'This site uses an outdated security configuration, which may expose your information...'

The platform is Windows Server 2008 with IIS 7.  We are moving to a Windows 2016 server but I don't have direct control over when that move will occur.  Is there something I can modify in the interim to bring it up to standards?

Thanks!

Chrome generates an unhappy icon and cannot find site error message.   I have tried uninstalling and downloading the latest version of Chrome.   I have rebooted several times.  It use to work.
Not sure what caused it.  There may have been an update.  Windows 10 has the most recent update.

We are trying to play a .mp4 in the latest version of Chrome. The .mp4 is located on a Windows 2016 IIS server. The audio works fine but the video will not work. It does work in Edge though. Any ideas?

Easier question.   I am attempting to re-download a file from Datto's cloud interface, its a rather large amount 766gb.   Its an old EMR database I need to re-attach to their old sql server.   However the web browser does not give me the the ability to select which partition to download to, it automatically starts to compress and bring the process once I highlight the file and select download.   Does anyone know any browser commands I can use like shift click or something along those lines from any web browser, firefox, IE, Chrome, Edge that would generate a windows file explorer menu and allow me to select a path location to download prior to saying being download?  

I let this run on its own and the local c:\ was only 500gb space available.   I think it ran out of space and rebooted on its own.   I think if I can get the browser to redirect the download someway using a specific command I can tell it to save to the D:\ partition of the server I am attempting to download in and get the file that way, just need to know how to do it from a browser command setting.

Hi

I'm coding javascript in Brackets on a Macbook, but I'm going out to my Safari and refreshing to see if my code works.

Anyway, there is a 'live preview' lightning button on the side, that seems more efficient, but it claims it needs Google Chrome to work.

If I install chrome on my MacBook with Safari, will that be a mess? Do they collide?

Will the live preview in Brackets work as intended? What should I do? Does it fire up the index.html?

Thanks

I am using the standard input type date textbox on Chrome.

        <asp:TextBox ID="txtHireDate" CssClass="stylDOBTextbox" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

Open in new window


I am setting the attribute type to date in the code behind.
txtHireDate.Attributes("type") = "date"

Open in new window


Right now the place holder text is "mm/dd/yyyy" and the color for the placeholder text is the same as the input text.
I need the placeholder text to be a different color than when the user selects a date.

I have tried these css solutions below and none of them have worked:
input[type="text"]:disabled, input[type="date"]:disabled {
  color: #9A9A9A;
}

input[type="date"]:invalid::-webkit-datetime-edit {
    color: #9A9A9A !important;
}
::-webkit-datetime-edit-day-field:not([aria-valuetext=blank]),
::-webkit-datetime-edit-month-field:not([aria-valuetext]),
::-webkit-datetime-edit-year-field:not([aria-valuetext]) 
{
 color: #9A9A9A !important;
}
input::-webkit-datetime-edit-fields-wrapper > [aria-valuetext=blank], input::-webkit-datetime-edit-fields-wrapper > [aria-valuetext] {
      color: #9A9A9A !important;
}
::placeholder {
    color: #9A9A9A !important;
}

Open in new window

I also tried using javascript to change the color.
 var el = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
    el.onchange = function () {
        if (el.value === '') {
            el.classList.add("testPlaceholder");
        } else {
            el.classList.remove("testPlaceholder");
        }
    }

Open in new window

None of the solutions I found online seem to work. It appears to be a common issue with the Chrome textbox, but I can't seem to find a solution that works.

chromium based edge shows the secured web page of one of our Server 2019 IIS web site before the user has entered the account name and password.  IE, Firefox, Edge and Chrome all force the user to successfully log in before showing the page.   With Chromium based Edge rolling out to Windows 10 users on 1/16/2020  we would like to somehow fix this.  I don't think it is safe to assume this will be resolved in the new Edge by 1/16.  Is there some other piece in Server 2019 IIS we could activate to prevent this?  As info chromium based edge works the same way with the same site on a Server 2008 IIS.  The other browsers listed behave and force a successful log in before displaying the page.

Are there any good OFFLINE bookmark managers that have auto-organization / reorganization features?  So that one could take their heretofore somewhat organized bookmarks and generate a fresh organization (with a backup).

Looking for something kind of point and click like versus Linkman or AM-Deadlink.

Thanks!

My child has his internet content restricted using Microsoft Family Safety. He wants to go to a site that is permitted, but he wants  to do so with an InPrivate window. This does not seem to be available.

Can it be made available? If so, how do I enable this for him?

Thank you.

I would like to know why when I click on a message saying "if you are having a problem viewing this email in outlook click here to open in browser. See image capture. The email opens in IE 11 not in Chrome as it would have been if I would to click on the email links if it would have been displayed otherwise. My default browser is Chrome.

Thank you,
