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 have Camscan DVR and I am trying to access it using IP address. I tried using IE and chrome but its continue to asking me to install WebkitPlugin. I installed it and each time I try to access I got this and its not going through to login screen. I tried to install IE for chrome and its same problem.

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

Use Dreamweaver to edit webpages display - padding fonts and adjust some of the tabular displays.

No matter the page I chose - in Live Mode (NOT LIVE PREVIEW) displays the login page.

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.
There are "Browser Isolation Software" on the market.

I want to develop remote browser that works as proxy or works like RemoteApp.
How can I build such software with open source ?
Do they use Server Side Rendering ?

The components of the system is browser on Windows PC --> Linux(Web Browser) -->Internet.

Any advice welcome.
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.

How to disable chrome print preview dialog?
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.
Hello Experts, I want to keep my default browser as IE/Edge but for a specific URL that I could send in an email I want o force the use of chrome.  Is there a simple solution?

Scenario - I am in a corporate environment and our default browser is IE, that won’t change.  I have a solution I am rolling out that requires the use of Chrome.  Users will have a difficult time copying a URL and making a shortcut etc. I want to be able to send an email with a link and have it us Chrome with an internal url.

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.

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?

VMWare Client Integration Plugin v6.2 (For Internet Explorer 11 and Firefox Ver. 66)
VMWare Client Integration Pluginv6.0 (For Google Chrome Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit))
on a
Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (64-bit) PC.

What Works
- ISO upload to VMWare vCloud Director Catalog works using Internet Explorer 11 only (does not work with Chrome and Firefox) on the PC.

Workaround in place - Console Content Access works for all the same VMs via a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Server from within the same environment (setup by someone else not contactable)
(This Server will be decommissioned soon - so need the console working on the PC before the server gets decommissioned)

What Does not work
– VMWare vCloud Director WebMKSConsole Content Access – for any VMs – using any Web Browser (IE, Firefox or Chrome)

Get the following screen – doesn’t matter whether the URL is DNS Name or via IP Address.

Troubleshooting done
-      Added DNS Name to local host file on PC (which made the ISO upload work)
-      Reinstalled VMWare Client Integration Plugin v6.2 , v6.0 and v5.6 after uninstalling, reinstalling and rebooting a number of times.
-      Added Firewall Exclusions on Local PC for all profiles (Domain, Private and Public)
-      Installed the Valid Certificate for FQDN in Automatically Selected Store and the Trusted Root Certificate Store.
-      Tried Troubleshooting described on various VMWare Website and Forums – some were unclear.

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?
