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.

We have a user who needs to clear out their chrome browser history but it is grayed out and "blocked by administrator." We checked the group policies both local and on the domain and there is nothing indicating that the setting has been blocked. We updated the software, and ran an anti-malware scan. We would prefer to not uninstall and reinstall so we are looking for other options.

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to install the Microsoft Lync Web App Plugin.  I get to a point during the process where I'm prompted to run the plug in, in order to get audio and video.  However, as the progress bar gets to about 90% complete a dialogue box generates and indicates the "The specified account already exists", then closes and the users is never able to reach their meeting.

Here are some details surrounding the setup -

  • The device is a Dell laptop
  • The OS is a WIN 7 64-bit platform
  • Running Microsoft Office 2013
  • This is a domain environment
  • The user is a standard user on the laptop
  • I, as an admin, have installed the Skype Meetings App as I can see it listed in Control Panel
  • I've also got the latest version of Silver Light installed
  • I've also uninstalled and reinstalled the Skype Meetings App a couple times and get the same dialogue box - Account Already Exists
  • I've cleared the cache and history
  • We don't run Office 365

I'm a bit stumped.  Any thoughts?

Thanks for your help.

I am having a problem with Woocommerce new categories not showing the products.  To test what is going on I created a new category called Promotions and put one product in it.  But as you can see I am getting this message.

https://gyazo.com/305a1237d267847a67a0df6cfae84f8a

Here is the product as you can see I have Promotions ticked

https://gyazo.com/7e725a8a3c16193de3af3877a7ce08f5

When I click on Chrome Console this is what is showing up.  Unfortunately, I don't know how to correct these issues.

https://gyazo.com/1a6efa8cc5d613472413ffbe3fbfbhttps://www.experts-exchange.com/askQuestion.jsp?headerLink=ask#1c8

This is an active site and I just discovered today that categories wasn't working.  I have disconnected any new plugins since the last time I checked out an individual category.

Please help me to solve this issue.

Thanks,

Randal

I have this Javascript function:
function go_mod_price() {
	ne = document.st.elements.length;
	alert("ne = " + ne);
	for (i = 0; i < ne; i++) {
		if (document.st.elements(i).type == "radio") {
			if (document.st.elements(i).checked) {
				ppid = document.st.elements(i).value;
				break;
			}
		}
	alert("ppid = " + ppid);		
	document.st.action="load_proj_mod.php?ppid=" + ppid;
	document.st.submit();
	}
}

Open in new window


It's a small part of a bigger program. The name of the form is st.

Chrome console gives me this:

projects.php:150 Uncaught TypeError: document.st.elements is not a function
    at go_mod_price (projects.php:150)
    at HTMLInputElement.onclick (projects.php:399)

The first alert displays; the 2nd does not.

I was almost SURE that document.<form name>elements(i)

was proper syntax.

What am I missing?

Search engines have changed the display of a domain name in search results by adding random capitalization.  

For example, what once was listed as

aircraft.com

now many, but not all, listings have been changed to

AirCraft.com

with the "A" and the "C" capitalized in search results. (Just an example.  Not actual site)

So, a page that might have shown in search results as:

The 747 Seat Tray - aircraft.com
https://www.aircraft.com/?view=wide&db=11 Translate this page View Similar Sites
The seat tray was first introduced in the late 1960s in a precursor to the 747 the 727

No changes have been made to the <title> or <description> tags in the pages.  Site has been online for a long time.  Only recent changes was to upgrade some coding, add wider https.  But, nothing substantive.

Interestingly, it is always shows this after the dash.  So that the pages' <title> correctly display, but the site url appended to the title with a dash now shows this modified capitalization.

I created a Chrome GPO to apply to both users and computer settings

1) sets home button
2) opens home button url on startup


It works on most workstations.  However, on one workstation the home button, and on startup settings are not working.  

After the GPO is applied, the workstations Chrome settings show:
Show home button:
-settings are managed by administrator (greyed out) but....
- new tab page radio button is checked
- home page url radio button is not checked, but it has the correct greyed out URL

On startup:
- Open a specific page or set of pages radio button is selected, greyed out, and has the correct homepage url.    However, when a new instance of the browser is started, it goes to another older homepage url that is no longer listed.  

How do I set the GPO to force this workstation's chrome install to have the homepage url radio button checked, and go to the correct page on Startup?

When IT Tasks are submitted to SharePoint in IE, and then modified in Google Chrome, they show up with HTML mark up. This is only an issue with Chrome. I have verified that rich text is enabled. How do I resolve this? Please see the screenshots below.

4.      Restart Browser

But, I want to setup a GPO for it instead.  Any suggestions?

refer to attached:

I've set to start IE  loading last session's tabs:
however, when rebooting PC or under certain unknown
conditions, the last tabs were not loaded & got a fresh
IE tab instead.

With Chrome, when PC is rebooted or force terminate
the browser, I'll still get the last session's tabs.

What else is missing for my IE?

On random Mac OS devices running Mojave (any version):

SOCKS proxy is automatically re-enabled after every reboot/power cycle.

By default, no proxy settings should be configured.

The proxy is configured with: localhost port 8080

This causes all email apps to go offline intermittently. Also it causes all web browsers to become "unable to load" any web page.

Once the proxy is manually disabled in Network Preferences; everything works fine.

How do I disable permanently?
Why does the SOCKS proxy auto enable after the device is power cycled?

We have a number of users that work remotely. Lately, they have been experiencing a large lag when trying to run in house developed .aspx pages.

This appears in multiple ways: 1) taking multiple seconds for letters to appear when typing and 2) taking lots of time for data in a dropdown list to appear.

I have tried all of the normal fixes with no luck. Examples:

-Problem happens in different web browsers.
-Problem happens when the remote users are in the office connected via cable or when they are using WiFi remotely.
-All other users are having no problems with the application.

Any other suggestions?

When I type my domain name (e.g. "example.com") into Safari on my iPhone, I am directed to the unsecured version (http://example.com).

Same behavior with Edge on desktop: if I type example.com in the URL bar, I am directed to the unsecured version.

On Chrome however if I type example.com https://www.example.com is loaded.

My site is hosted on Heroku with DNS by Google domains:

I have a URI protocol handler in the windows registry to launch an application.  How can I test/call that from the chrome address bar?   if I put in protocolname:parameters, chrome just performs an internet search.  I want to launch protocolname and the application specified in protocolname handler.

I have a 3rd party website that is able to launch the protocol.  They have a settings field to launch URL on a trigger.  I put in my protocolname:parameters in the URL field.  When triggered, this website opens a new tab and protocolname:parameters shows in the address bar and the protocol is launched.  Like I said, though, when I try to test by putting the same thing manually in an address bar, it triggers a search instead of launching the protocol handler.
