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.

Google Chrome is been acting up lately. I click on a link in outlook and nothing happens. I click on a saved internet shortcut in a folder and nothing opens either. The same applies when I click on the Chrome short cut in the taskbar or in the start menu. I tried to uninstall it and i get a message saying close all windows then retry when infact no Chrome window is open. I am using Edge now. Can someone help me please? Will uninstalling Chrome cause me to lose my bookmarks and my tabs , settings, etc.  ? Why is this happening all of the sudden? Please help.

How to disable chrome print preview dialog?
I'm using Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit) in Windows 10

I have tried these options:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --disable-print-preview

added --disable-print-preview in the chrome shortcut

and the next step asked me to disable the settings in chrome://flags/
chrome-issue.pngbut I haven't seen this option in  Version 73.0.3683.103

I have a client who needs to determine the size (amount) of data he is uploading on a fillable web page. I know there are sites to determine a website and/or web page size, but how do you determine the size of the data you want to upload?

Internet explorer and Edge does not open webpages giving the following error: There was a temporary DNS error. Try refreshing the page.
Error Code: INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND. When accessing the internet with Chrome, it works without any problems and you can access any website. I have reset network settings and also flushed the dns and cleared everything in the browsers. Nothing made a difference. Any idea what is causing this? Windows 10 pro is the operating system and this problem started about 2 weeks ago.

I was working in Zendesk (using Chrome). At one point, I think I was searching for something (via CTRL-F) and I thought i saw the message "Bookmark Added" flash on the screen. is it possible I  hit some sort of hotkey to add a bookmark at the Chrome level?

I'd much rather it be that than an accidental bookmark insertion in Zendesk.

Thanks,
Steve

Every time I search using Google in Firefox I get this crap.

In Chrome, it works fine.

How do I get rid of this & prevent it in the future?

Does anyone know if there are any Gmail extensions that auto delete specific emails from specific senders after they have been read and sat for say 3-5 days in my inbox.....automatically. Like a rule sort of but runs to check the inbox for say a daily alert.
Here is an example I get a daily balance from my Wells Fargo accounts that say what my balance is or if there has been any activity.
is there a feature or extension that will look at emails from Wells Fargo that are either opened and sat in inbox for 3 or more days and delete them automatically.
Or If I watch the TV show Frontline on PBS and it tells me that a show is airing that night.
These kinds of emails are great. I just forget to delete many like them and they build up.
Also I noticed that some businesses or marketing emails from companies constantly send messages I do not need. EVEN AFTER SETTING THEM TO UNSUBSCRIBE OR PREFERENCES IN THE PROFILES THAT THEY BUILD...!
Is there a way to manage all that excess junk crap etc that just builds up.

I want to get to a place where all my emails I handled every day had a place for completed archived deleted or work still in progress. The big thing is to clean up else my Tiny Mind will get overloaded with junk and I will develop a brain fog I cannot navigate. Any good tools or extensions for gmail that do that. Primarily the auto delete part?

I have a client with a MacBook Pro running Mac OS X 14.4.4 - Mojave. Today, out of the blue, anytime they visit a website where they login, they are prompted to enter the computer password...every time. How did I stop this from happening?

I am running a Mac Pro 14.4.4 with Chrome Version 73.0.3683.86 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I manage Google Apps for our Domain and I seem to be signed in TWICE, one with a personal account and one with a Work account.

What I mean by this is that the icon next to the Hamburger menu is "Paused" and has my personal Gmail Account signed in but when I login to my Google Apps (e.g. Mail.DOMAIN.com) it shows my work account.

Does anyone know how to resolve this? Ultimately I'd like to be signed in ONLY to my Work email for this computer and enable synching of bookmarks.

Thanks!

Do google chrome books store WiFi passwords?

I ask because I would like to connect a guest to a WiFi network, allow them to get what they need from the Internet, then immediately disconnect them from WiFi.   I am concerned that the password to our WiFi network may remain on the chrome book even when the connection is deleted.

Thank you.

I have this code, a small snippet of a much larger program:

function save_proj() {
	alert("sesname = " + sessname);
	if (ps != "Y") {
		if (save_sel == 1) {
			window.location = "sel_save.php?fr=";
		}
	}
}
function chk_skip_summ() {
	if (nosumm == "1") {
		window.location = "send_email_ls250.php?ddocs=" + ddocs;
	}
	save_proj(); 
	chk_ems(); 
	set_pointers();
	//show body
    document.getElementById("container").style.visibility = 'visible';
}	
</script>	
<!-- Global site tag (gtag.js) - Google
Analytics -->

<script async
src="https://www.googletagmanager.com
/gtag/js?id=UA-96994211-3"></script>

<script>
window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer
|| [];
function
gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
gtag('js', new Date());
gtag('config', 'UA-96994211-3');
</script>
</head>
<body onLoad="save_proj(); chk_ems(); set_pointers();">

Open in new window


I have run this in Chrome with the debugger on . It shows no exceptions.

The full page loads & sits, which is what it should do AFTER it goes to sel_save.php, that program updates the database with some things, then returns to here.

But how can the alert be avoided.

This one takes the cake. I am obviously missing something obvious.

Pieces:

(1) Simple php program

<?php
// proj_summary_mu.php
error_reporting(E_ERROR);
session_start();
include "db_connect_nb.php";
$pid = $_GET['pid'];
include "pdf_MU_project.php";
// use fpdf_merge to put together
include "merge_MU_pdfs.php";
?> 

Open in new window


(2) File pdf_MU_project.php attached.

Note there is ONE echo in this file. It never shows.

(3) The last few lines of pre_package_mu.php. This is significant, because the real problem shows this as the program being executed, which is NOT true.

	// do the project summaries
	header("Location: proj_summary_mu.php?pid=". $pid);
	//header("Location: package.php?pid=" . $pid);
	exit;
?>

Open in new window


(4) Browser display of code as run (attached) . Earlier today I had echos that show this; they have bee removed, I have checked source on the server, they are NOT there. I ran it in FireFox AFTER clearing the cache. Don't know how to clear cache in chrome. Ran it there, identical result

As best I can see, this is impossible.

How do I get rid of a google chrome extension called directionsfinder.co? I accidentally downloaded it when I tried to download Google earth on my windows 10 desktop. I used to have Norton 360, but now I have free McAfee through my cable subscriber. A Google search said it is a browser hijacker and a virus and that I have to reset Chrome. Will I lose all my other add-ons, extension, bookmarks, etc?

Decent HP Desktop running sluggish, mostly due to Chrome and Edge.
- HP Desktop 5082vS3 (750-114), 12 GB RAM, 64-bit PC, Windows 10 (OS 17134.523). 1.7 TB storage free, HDD.

I posted essentially the same question recently and got good advice, but wanted to follow up. I've been studying Task Manager for several weeks, and did a quick comparison to work, which runs great. Both have HDD.

So it's definitely Edge and Chrome that are killing the machine, while my government runs great running 2+ times more processes (mostly Chrome, Edge, PL-SQL Developer, SPSS, etc.)

Malwarebytes is running, all green, and runs every day. I also have McAfee running, also all green.

After like two weeks, government PC was at 16% CPU, 74% Memory, and 0% disk,
running 84 Chrome processes and 41 Edge processes. Also has HDD (500 GB).

Home system grinds to a halt
running 34 Chrome processes and 11 Edge processes

But basically after 3-4 days at home and essentially light usage (at night, web surfing, etc.), it grinds to a halt.

I used Epic browser only this week, and it's been hanging in at 60% Memory, 10% CPU, 1% Disk.

With Chrome and Edge running, often CPU spikes to 100%, Memory often get to 90% and Disk often at 100%! So much so that after 3-4 days I'm re-booting.

From last post:

Chrome …

Somehow, when I go to google.com, I now get this.

How do I fix that?

I'm using Firefox, I don't have time to try other browsers.

Thanks
