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.

Hello Experts - I recently upgraded a Dell Precision laptop from Windows 7 pro to 10.  I'm seeing both Edge and the Windows store are unable to access the internet.  IE and Chrome both work normally.  I don't see any proxy set and the machine is working fine otherwise.  Any ideas on what I can try to get the MS products working?
I have a site (it's an intranet, so I can't give a link) which uses jQuery.ui dialogs to show messages.
It uses only jQuery and jQuery.UI plus some of our own JS and CSS.
When the page content is much bigger than the view port (the browser window) (so there is vertical scroll bar appears) the dialog is shown at the bottom of the browser's window. Also the opposite is true, when the page content is much less to the browser's window, the dialog is aligned to the top edge.
I've found out that on this site the following expression is always equals true (in Chrome and Mozilla, but not in IE) and I believe that is the reason for the dialog misplacing.

Open in new window

On other sites these two methods return different sizes of the page content and the viewport accordingly.
What could be a cause for that?
I'm starting an MVC application in Visual Studio.NET C#.  If I create a new view and set it as the startup page, I get this message in Chrome.  Why do I get the message and how do I remove it.
My first aim is to put a textbox on the view and a button.  The user enters a number in the textbox, presses the button and the page displays double the number.

I need to back up all the settings found in Control Panel=>Internet Options (for Internet Explorer 11) so I can easily restore them to another user. Does anyone know where these settings are kept?
We built a new remote desktop services server just recently. We are very happy with it except for one strange issue. When one of our domain joined laptops launches the login page from either IE or Chrome, a certificate windows pops up asking to use one of our sub-ca certs to login. If I say yes, it gives me a login failure and an IIS screen pops up. If I say no, the cert screen goes away and continues to the correct login page. Its almost as if the site initially once to use the cert for authentication when it should not. Any ideas?

I'm in the process up updating firmware on network devices.
RV042 updates have gone well.
RV320 updates are NOT going well.

RV320 units are at firmware and we want to get to
Even existing units don't respond to laptop browsers: IE, Google Chrome, Firefox.
I believe the GUI is working but unless we reset to factory defaults, the browser *connections* fail.
As soon as a working configuration is loaded up, the connections stop working.

Any insights?

I have a cloud based program that certain links open up in a completely new 'sub window'.  Original window in the browser remains.  I can perform tasks in this new window.  HOwever, when I select another link that uses a 'sub window' also, the previous 'sub window' is replaced by the new one.  Is there a way to get these to not replace each other or have them open up in a new tab on the browser instead.

Thanks in advance, it's driving me crazy :)
Are there any files.on a windows 7 machine that would divulge the private (internal) and external IP address it has been assigned. In this case the machine is offline so cannot connect it to the internet and use an online service to get the external IP nor run IP config to see what internal/private IP it has been assigned. I didnt know if any specific logs or other files may give a trace.

Really not an area I am experienced in but I presume your internal and external IP differs for each network the device was connected to. E.g. if the same device connected to 5 different networks/wifi each would show a different internal and external IP when they visit say a website,its not something 'per device' and the same value each network connected to.

Wasnt sure if browser history/logs may reveal the external IP of your device used to access an external site,perhaps.

I have a Google Chromebook and when I take these two online assessments they don't work. One returns a "bad request" page and the other returns an error page about a bad transaction. I don't think this is a coincidence but I was wondering if there's any way to get around these issues.
Need a practice website for HTML layout and design

I need a site where I can plunk around and use HTML/CSS to create Div tags, nested Div tags and controls with specific orientations and where I can adjust the HTML/CSS and see the results immediately.

It would be also nice if there were sample layouts I can look at.

AND, why not also have some Javascript functionality so I can also see how different JS code impacts the functionality on the page.


I have user who use windows 10 and  Chrome browser and get adverts popping at the bottom hand of the window. Please let me know as how to stop all this popup.

Firefox works fine, but Chrome will give you seizures.

Any suggestions?

I'm not sure what I'm asking for but I'll try to describe what I'm looking for in my situation with Chrome.  I'm investigating the requirements to change the environment's default browser to chrome.  I know how to add GPO's and manage the behavior of chrome at the pc/domain level but I want to also control the disablement of sync access for a user if/when they leave the company for security reasons; saved passwords,etc.  

Here is my main questions -
1. Can I tie Chrome's sync login to our domain accounts so I can control the Chrome access to the sync passwords when they leave?
I am setting up a brand new computer. It was preset up before my company sent it to me, with Chrome.

When I run a Google search in Chrome on the new PC, I get all kinds of ads at the top. But on my existing computer, I have no such ads.

When I run a search in Firefox on the new PC, it looks like the existing PC - no ads.

Here are the screenshots.

How do I get rid of these ads and "fix" this new PC? thanks!

I'm running Windows 10, and use Chrome or MS Edge as my browsers.   I got ClipGrabber to download YouTube videos, which works great.  But when I try to download certain content (e.g. a Bud Light Commercial) I get a pop-up that says I need to login to confirm my age.  I changed my Google settings to include my birth year, and logged into YouTube, but none of my login passwords (Google or YouTube) work to get me past the pop-up.  I even tried changing my Google password, but even the new password doesn't work.  Please help.


Computer is Windows 7 Pro attached to a Server 2012 R2 AD domain.

After adding a new domain user, I logged into the computer she'd be using to setup the profile. After configuring the profile the same way I've done countless times, I opened both IE and Chrome to setup the home page in each.

Going to any https website yielded "Your connection is not private" in Chrome, and "There is a problem with this website’s security certificate." in IE.

Googling the issue showed that many others have experienced these errors as well...but with no resolution that I found.

I tried or checked the following:
The date and time were correct
Reset IE's settings to default
Uninstallined ESET End Point Antivirus
Deleted browser cache and cookies
Windows updates were current
Multiple malware scans
Tried Chrome's incognito window
Deleted the new profile plus others that were no longer used
The computer otherwise ran normally


I had issues with a website and called them about the issue. They said it was my browser that was not letting the list of financial transactions populate more than 90 days back. Ot would have been over 1500 in total. So, I removed all three browsers and downloaded new versions. The latest version of Google has page loading issues. I tried to do a system restore and it failed 5 times. I was choosing and older date (January 24) trying to get the older version of Google Chrome. The first try it said an antivirus program might be the reason. I disabled Trend Micro. Again restore failed so I removed TM and MWB from the system and still it failed. I went ahead on the last try and chose one of the dates it suggested to me. Here is the message I am getting.


When I am getting the following message on a site that I trust. How do I get rid of it?
"There is a problem connecting securely to this website"
HP Desktop 5082vS3 (750-114) really sluggish now, mostly due to Chrome and Edge, Firefox somewhat. Really bogged down. 12 GB RAM, 64-bit PC, Windows 10 (OS 17134.523). 1.7 TB storage free ... PC probably 3 years old.

Lots of Windows / tabs open, but I do the same at work, and my no-brand gov't desktop runs fine and CPU, Memory, and Disk are all good.

I don't do anything fancy, how can I clean this up? See attached.  Not sure what "Disk Usage" is and why it's often at 100% or pretty high.
