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 ran a few vulnerability scanners over a few of our web apps, and one of the 'low risk' errors it flags is password auto-complete is enabled.

I went to the login page for the said system, which has an initial login page where users need to supply username & password combination, and 'viewed source' - which does show a line in the HTML of:

<p><label for="httpd_password">Password</label> <input name="httpd_password" type="password"></p>

This was the extract from the vulnerability assessment report. My question is, how big of a risk is this? I am not fully confident it does auto-complete anything, as if I log out the system aclose the browser and re-try access I am back to the login page where I need to enter my credentials again. Nothing has been auto completed for me?  Is something superseding this so called vulnerability to make it less of a problem, henc the low risk scoring - or is this something to be worried about? I haven't tried every browser to see how it behaves. Is it good practice to turn this off on any web app?

I have an nginx development site that I can't get into because it keeps auto-populating to https. This is because I the copied files and database from an existing https enabled site.  Is there a way to force a browser to only use http for this site?

This site hasn't been propogated so there is no dns.  Thus, no way to have an ssl cert.

Because it keeps filling in the https I get a message the site can't be reached.  I have tried filling it in manually and deleting the history but it still keeps accessing https.

Thanks

Google Chrome Browser: 75.0.3770.142 (Official Build) (32-bit)
Windows OS (10 & 8.1)

BACKGROUND
The speed of loading web pages in my Google Chrome Browser had become slow. While looking through the advanced settings of the Google Chrome Browser, I clicked on the selection titled: "Manage Certificates". I noticed there are a large number of certificates.

QUESTION
(see Title of this post)
When, if ever, does it become (a) necessary or (b) advisable to remove (delete) one or more SSL certificates?
Is there a method that allows you to easily find "expired" certificates?
What would be the expected result if one were to remove ALL certificates? Could this cause problems, or would they simply reinstall themselves as needed, when those sites were visited again?

Hi,
In a Web application:

I need to take a screenshot of a chart that has so many columns that it flows off the right hand side of the screen. I reduce the Chrome zoom to 67% but then, the individual cells become so small that it would be hard for the reader to understand it.

Would it be considered a proper practice to split the table into two lines, with some clear indication that the 2nd screenshot is merely a continuation of the first?

Thanks.

I want to create cookies for a Remember Me functionality on http://www.gtraxc.com/login.asp

Here is how I create the cookie:
            If Request.Form.Item("remember-me") = "on" Then
                Response.Cookies("user_name") = sUserName
                Response.Cookies("password") = sPassword
            End If

Open in new window


Here is where I retrieve it:
sUserName = Request.Cookies("user_name")
sPassword = Request.Cookies("password")

Open in new window


And here is how I attempt to place it in the appropriate form item values:
                                <fieldset class="form-group position-relative has-icon-left">
                                    <input type="text" class="form-control form-control-lg input-lg" 
                                    name="user_name" id="user_name" placeholder="Your User Name" required=""
                                    value="<%=sUserName%>">
                                    <div class="form-control-position">
                                        <i class="icon-head"></i>
                                    </div>
                                </fieldset>
                                <fieldset class="form-group position-relative has-icon-left">
                                    <input type="password" class="form-control form-control-lg input-lg" 
                                    name="password" id="user-password" placeholder="Enter Password" required=""
                                    value="<%=sPassword%>" aria-invalid="false">
                                    <div class="form-control-position">
                                        <i class="icon-key3"></i>
                                    </div>
                                </fieldset>

Open in new window


It does not appear to be working.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Can someone please explain where in the page this background image is coming from? I'm looking in the Chrome dev tools Computed section for various elements that cover that part of the page, and none of them seem to set a background image.

The main image is in a slider. If I remove the slider using the GUI editor for the site, the other image still displays in the editor, but in a way that indicates something might be a bit corrupted somewhere in the WordPress page data. I'm trying to figure out how to clean it up, or at least hide the unwanted image.

Edit: Apologies, the url is laing.jfm.co.nz

I have been trying to get rid of Ad Choices when I browse the internet. I have scanned my windows 10 for viruses and it comes up clean. I don't get pop ups all over the place but it is annoying every time you go to a site you see AD Choices pop up on th side recommending ads. Tried some of the "How TOs"  but nothing seems to work.

Hello,

We recently deploy group policies to update our IE and Chrome settings.  

We have users reporting WEB links in some of their legit emails are not being seen.  Clicking on it is okay.  

I am not sure if this is related to the deployed GPO.  

I am not familiar the requirements of web links to be displayed properly in Outlook.  

Someone who know what might happen please advice.

Thanks.

I have been having an ongoing problem with Firefox when I log into my bank's website.  When I try to view a statement, I see a page full of HTML code.  Above the HTML page there is an up arrow and a blue button with the option to log into my Google Account.  The up arrow opens up another page of the same HTML code.  For a while this only happened when I used Ameriprise. Now the same problem occurs on Schwab and Wells Fargo.  The problem does not occur on Chrome, but I use Firefox 98% of the time and prefer to fix this on my primary browser.  I am running Windows 7 (if that matters).  My OS and browsers are up to date.  In Firefox I just tried changing the application settings for PDF - before they were set to "default", now they are set to open in Acrobat X Pro.  The problem still exists.  I do NOT want to be logged into my Google Account when accessing my online banking for fear of what data is being captured.

At some point I will be upgrading my Windows, but for now I am hoping a setting or proven safe plug-in will solve this.

Thanks for your help.  Let me know if you need any additional info.

P.S. As I type this I am going to change the default to open in Acrobat Reader DC, after I make sure it is up to date.  Maybe my X Pro is so old it is missing some security feature that allows it to open the PDF?

Also, not sure if this is related, but on some sites when I go to download a PDF I get a long random string of alphanumeric characters with no extension.  If I go…

I need to be able to print off worksheets from my web pages, but i dont want the page titles and urls to be printed at top and bottom of the page, is there a way to stop this information being printed

the site is built in ASP classic,  will  use jquery/javascript to accomplish this if that is the way to go

Alternatively can you send options to the print preview screen to remove these from the page instead of having to change them in the print preview screen

I have a compiled application that includes an OLE web browser control and the program automatically loads a specific web page.

On confirmation to continue a new page should load for entry of a user name and password.

This fails with a status code of  2146697208

I have also tested directly in Internet Explorer and the same behavior occurs suggesting the program code is not at fault.

The user has Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8

In the gmail app on my iPhone, I have four personal and business emails set up.  I'd like to be able to see them each separately.

When I open gmail in my Chrome browser, I can "Add account" to see my separate inboxes in separate tabs in my browser.

So on my iPhone I'd like to be able to do the same thing.  I'm sure it used to be this way, but now I'm seeing "All Inboxes".

Hello,

I have a GPO to set the default web page in Chrome.  The setting in my GPO is Computer Configuration>Policies>Administrative Templates>Google>Google Chrome>Home Page>Configure the home page URL.  

On a test workstation, I did a gpupdate /force, and rsop.msc shows in attached.  

Still, when I open up Chrome, I do not see the home page I specified.  

Please advise.  

Thanks.

Hello. I'm trying to write VBA code (in Excel) to browse web pages and save them to files.

I already have VBA code to automate Internet Explorer, navigate to web pages, and extract the text of the pages. But now I want to save the entire page, including images. In other words, I'd like to do the equivalent of manually printing the web page to PDF, saving it as an MHTML file, saving it as "Web page, Complete" (with the images in a separate folder), or possibly saving the whole web page as one image file.

I've tried...

1. Initiating a print job in IE, having made "Print to PDF" the default. I've tried various variations on this statement:

 IE.ExecWB OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER

The problem is that it opens a Print dialog box followed by a Save File dialog box, and the only way I can find to interact with these boxes is to use SendKeys. But that's unrelaible. I don't know how long to wait for the dialog box to appear before sending the keys.

2. Creating an MHTML file using CDO, with this statement:

cdoMsg.CreateMHTMLBody url, cdoSuppressNone

This works, but it produces a very poorly rendered version of the web page.

Can you suggest any other options, please? I'd be open to using method #1 above, if I could detect when the dialog boxes are ready to receive keys with SendKeys. Alternatively, perhaps I should use a different technology. I'm only really familiar with VBA, but I understand that there are VBA wrappers available for WebKit and…

I have a Quicktime .MOV file that I would like to convert into a autoplaying, looping file of some sort that I could then place on a website.

It is an animation, with just a few graphic images moving.

I need it to very very compact.  A similar Shockwave Flash file was 140k

Thanks.

Is there a way to create a script to log me into my shopify account, and literally make one or two clicks (option changes), and log out?

I need to do the same things every week, and I would like to know if there's a way to automate that?  In contacting shopify, they don't allow us to make any changes to the API,
so we can't do it that way.
