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. 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 try to connect to a ticket system but it is very difficult to connect at peak hour.  Is it possible to allow IE or Chrome to reconnect to a website automatically once it is timeout ? On window 10, is it possible to start few in-depended connection such that it can increase the chance of the connection ?

Does anyone know a live support phone # for Google? I'm having an internet speed issue with Chrome. Thanks.
Chrome infected.

See attached.

How do I get rid of this garbage? I have Malware Bytes & Avast security.
I have started using SNI on my sites in IIS. I just noticed now that there is a alert saying  ..

.. "No default SSL site has been created. To support browsers without SNI capabilities, it is recommended to create a default SSL site."

Could someone please explain how I would go about creating this default SSL site?

How does this solve the problem with browsers that dont support SNI. Will this fix allow these browsers to go on this site without any security warnings?  My ssl cert is a wildcard cert if that makes any difference.

Thank you
One of our employees uses his personal Google account in Chrome on one of our office computers.  He came to me with an ESET Nod32 notification about a file infected with JS/Spigot.B; it comes up every time he opens Chrome.  I did all the standard malware removal procedures and removed all his Chrome extensions via the chrome://extensions page, but it turns out that the root of the problem is related to an extension in his Google account, not the computer, even though I removed every extension, about 10 in total.

Any Windows profile on any computer that I use to log into his Google account via Chrome results in the ESET notification of an infected file being detected.  This warning does not occur if I disable syncing of extensions.

While investigating, I went to chrome://sync-internals >> Sync Node Browser >> Extensions and found 5 extensions remaining. One, called Template Hub, has the following ID: hkmndieloknaojdmjdkmhmfcbgaanpdd.
Googling that ID lead me to:

Trying to install this extension results in an error and it fails to install, but then I get the same infected file notification. Thus far, I cannot find a way to remove the extension from the Google account, as I've already removed everything listed under Settings >> Extensions.  Until I can remove it from the Google account, it will continue …
Full disclosure: not a developer, never worked with any of this before. This seemed like a very straightforward process that isn't working for some reason.

Trying to use Chrome App Builder : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chrome-app-builder/ighkikkfkalojiibipjigpccggljgdff?hl=en
To create an app that points to a website that will run in kiosk mode. This should be a relatively simple undertaking. You name the app, plug in the url in the homepage section, (our is https://ffc-ic.ffc8.org/campus/OLRLoginKiosk/ffc) configure any settings for navigation, then select to save as kiosk.

While testing the app by opening the more tools-->extensions-->turn on developer mode-->load unpacked, however, I get errors. Having no idea where to even start on this (isn't it just supposed to be redirecting to a website?) I'm asking for assistance to determine where the errors could possibly be coming from.

Warning: Unknown Model in arequire
function arequire(modelName, opt_X) {
  var X = opt_X || GLOBAL.X;
  var model = FOAM.lookup(modelName, X);

      console.warn('Unknown Model in arequire: ', modelName);
      return aconstant(undefined);

I have a problem with my CSS Treeview. At Internet Explorer 11 the arrows left works fine. But in all other browsers (Edge, Chrome, Firefox, ...) the arrows doesn't transform.

I have extracted the problem from the project.

I have an issue with our Exchange Admin Centre.
When attempting configuration changes to mailboxes in EAC, running into several issues:
- The Organizational Units (OUs) are not showing up
- When clicking 'browse' to see a list of users, nothing shows up
- When attempting to run reports, getting errors
Tried with IE and Chrome.
We are running Exchange 2013 and the server has already been restarted but did not resolve the issue.
Each time I launch Google Chrome it displays tabs of links I previously visited.  How do I turn this off?  Or limit it to 2 or 3 tabs.
We have a need to transfer last file 15gbs or so.  Is there a limitation on Google or Mozilla on how large a file can be?  We use Anchor, a secure file system. Thanks

Live preview did ask for login - but then displays the page. I'd really prefer to not work in this manner - but if this is the only solution.

Kindly help me out. Thank you.

Question: Is Chrometanta-Redirect Bing Somewhere Better, a safe extension for Chrome?
Hi, please see http://dev.magickitchen.com/. User name: mel PW: mel   We added a video within the slide container. People can mute it, or advance to the next slide. If the browser doesn't allow autoplay, then after a couple of seconds a play button appears.

The site owners are very frustrated that it doesn't always autoplay, and my response has been that certain browsers simply don't allow it.

I want to check in here to make sure that I am not mistaken. It does autoplay on Microsoft Edge, but not on Chrome. I just realized that INternet explorer doesn't show the buttons at ALL.  Darn, should have checked that, will look into that.

This question is just about autoplay though. If you can help me autoplay on all browsers, the owners will be happier. Thanks
Cloning my Chrome Bookmarks?

I have a Windows 10 PC and a Windows 10 Virtual Machine and would like to keep the bookmarks in sync between the two.

At the moment, when I need something, I switch back to my desktop for the URL and copy it to Chrome on my VM.

Is there a way to handle this where they stay in sync? If not, must I export a file then import that file?

When I click on a link in outlook 2016 it opens as minimized in Chrome. See screen capture. Can you please suggest a permanent fix for once and for all? Thank you.
I'm trying to figure out how to debug a JavaScript cookie disappearance issue? I have some code that sets a cookie on one page and then reads the cookie on the next page. This code has worked for years. I'm now having some issues with specific pages only. I put console.logs for the cookie setting and reading. The cookie is always set with the value but on specific pages, the value is missing when the next page loads which is supposed to read the cookie value. I'm not sure how to debug this issue? Somewhere between the cookie being set and the cookie being read on the next page, it is  being deleted. It doesn't help to watch the cookie in the application section of Chrome as I can see the cookie is created via the console.logs. How do I debug if/how this cookie is being deleted by the web app in between the page unload and load of the next page?  

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.
I'm suddenly having problems downloading files. I've tried both Firefox and Chrome. The following is an example of the error I'm getting from the Chrome browser:

The onset of the problem seems to coincide with a recent Windows update. That's pure speculation, of course, but it's the only thing I can think of that has changed on the system.
I've been asked to help with a iMac showing the beachball and being very slow.
The problems started after installing security update 2019-002 and Safari 12.1.
The OS was Sierra (10.12) first, then updated to Mojave (10.14) which did not solve the problem.

I have a screenshot of Activity Monitor:
There I see Safari is using 30.31 GB of memory and 29.64 GB compressed memory, 8 threads, 358 ports.
Memory pressure is red, general information about memory is
8 GB physical
7.54 GB used
  953.4 MB app
  1.10 GB wired
  5.50 GB compressed
459.3 MB cached files
662.0 MB swap

All accounts on that machine are affected.

I assume that heavy swapping is going on, slowing down the iMac. (I don't know whether it has a SSD or a HDD.)
However, what I don't understand and what puzzles me, is how Safari can use 30 GB of memory when there is only 8GB physical and only 662 MB swap space (that being "The space used on your startup drive by macOS memory management.").

That's my main question. But of course, any help on how to go about solving the problem is very much appreciated, too.

Simple question:  I am running Windows 7 Pro.  I am looking for an easy to use free RSS reader.  Does not have to be fancy.  Yes, I have tried searching before posting but I cannot find any post answering this question.

What RSS reader do you recommend?
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?
I need to write down automated tests for a website.

There are countless tools / frameworks but before even starting I need to understand how to tackle the authentication challenge.

The website has automatic authentication using Windows Domain (Kerberos) but I don't know how I can use a test tool and allow a specific domain user to be the one running the test (and, therefore, the browser).

Can you maybe provide a solution or point me in the right direction?

Thanks for your help and patience.
I would like to know is there anyway to add to chrome context menu send to desktop as in IE browser? If so please outline an easy fix for that. Thank you.
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.
