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.

Computers running OSX (Not sure what version) all of a sudden are having problems resolving DNS.  This is all within the same household.  The family can go to a local coffee shop and experience the same issues while connected to WIFi there when no one else is having the problem.  The latency only seems to be an issue when you're using a web browser.  If you run nslookup from the console or ping, no problems are evident.

  • DNS resolution from the console is instant no matter what.
  • Flushed DNS Cache
  • Reset PRAM
  • Reset SMC
  • Tried different browsers, DNS resolution in all browsers takes 30-60 seconds per domain.
  • Ran ESET Cyber Security Pro to see if anything popped up there, nothing did.
  • Going to run Malwarebytes to see what it finds.
  • Tried different DNS, 1.1.1.1 and 8.8.8.8


Please advise.

Hi, can I know what is the problem based on the image ?

Do you have any solution to solve this problem ? I make a link in my website page, then when I click that link, it goes to that image.

The problem is : server error. 403 forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have a permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

I have 20 or so computers in my office.

we have had a problem where when you first launch a browser, the first tab to come up takes upwards of 45 seconds to a minute to load.
concurrently opened tabs open up right away, but that first tab once you launch the browser (chrome) takes so long it's becoming unbearable.

my first instinct was maybe it's DNS, and i changed that to 1.1.1.1 and 8.8.8.8, but the problem continues.

we use a cloud based application, so we are constantly using the network -- it's not arp resolution.

but the occasional times we have to look something up, we have to wait 30-45 seconds for the first browser tab to open.

this only happens on a few computers, the rest are ok

thanks,

Hi, I cannot get IE11 to show my secondary homepage when launching the web browser. I am working in a domain environment with Windows 10 Enterprise.
I have applied my IE policies via GPP but cannot get the second tab to show. Internet Options shows my second homepage listed, but he only manner that IE displays my secondary home page is when I click on the home button.

'Disable changing secondary homepage settings' is also set via GP. I have this working in Chrome and Edge, but running out of options with setting this up with IE.
Registry also reflects correct URL for the secondary home page. Also tested setting up via Policies and Preferences with no luck.

Chrome OS - WiFi connection constantly dropping on Acer 15 Chromebook.
I am using a Windows laptop running IIS to host our website, and a TP-Link wifi extender to create a private network for the Chromebook to connect to, but the chromebook keeps dropping the wifi connection. The network connection does not have internet access
From the Device-Log: Network Error [time] Default network in unexpected state: HOST (/service/1)State: idle
the above error repeats every minute in time with when the chromebook drops connection.

We have a suite of other laptops (Dell Inspiron) which connect without issue and load the website correctly.

I have been advised that the chromebook is actively looking for an internet connection, and if it cannot fine one on the network it is currently connected to it will drop it and try to connect to a different network. If this is the case, is there a way to stop or bypass the requirement for internet connection and connect only to the private network connection?

Cloud Class® Course: Certified Penetration Testing

This CPTE Certified Penetration Testing Engineer course covers everything you need to know about becoming a Certified Penetration Testing Engineer. Career Path: Professional roles include Ethical Hackers, Security Consultants, System Administrators, and Chief Security Officers.

We have a clickonce-application, which we cannot alter.

Now we have the following issue:

We have added the server to our trusted sites so that we are sure which zone it's taking.
When the security level for this zone is set to "Medium-Low", the application is starting without any issue.
When we switch the level to "Medium", we see that a screen is popping up but it disappears as fast as it comes up.

A next text we have done, was setting the zone to "Medium-Low" and press reset, but through the button "custom level" we have set everything the same as we should have when we set it in "Medium".
It runnig fine than.

If we do the opposite, it's not working (A next text we have done, was setting the zone to "Medium" and press reset, but through the button "custom level" we have set everything the same as we should have when we set it in "Medium-Level"

What can cause this ? Are there some "hidden" settings involved ?

Hi I am trying to making a google extension, I want to check if a url is open in a tab eg  "http://www.mywebpage.com/" and if it is get a value in a script var on that page.
I just have no idea how to do this. I have added the url in the manifest.json but have know idea what i need to put in the background worker.
It only needs access to one web page so don't want to say have access to all tabs.

the script var on that page is
var user = {"id":123,"email":"sales@123.com"}

Open in new window


I want to get the ID and email, then save that in the extension, and update it if it ever changes. This way they only have to go to page once for my extension to work, but if they do change their email and they revisit the page then it auto updates and saves it back to extension.

please help.

Background:  I'm working with a small school who is interested in bringing live text into their athletic streams.  The most cost effective yet easily editable solution for students is to use a Google Sheet.  The solution is great, but now they've evolved to wanting the "white" in the cell background to become transparent.

Question:  I'm working with OBS studio (https://obsproject.com/).  
I use a local Chrome browser source going to a Google Sheet as one of my media layers.   Works great.

The next thing I need to do is make the white background of a cell(s) to be transparent rather than the classic "white".  I've attempted a ChromaKey filter on the source and unfortunately I can't get the ChromaKey to filter on the browser source.

It has been mentioned to use CSS and change the "white" to "transparent".  Maybe even simply using the inspect aspect of Chrome for the local browser.

Is this something easily attainable to someone starting from scratch on the subject?

users who are forced to use ie 11 for certain sites are starting to have Internet explorer crash on them.
It just started 2 days ago.

Is this because of the TLS 1.0 standard?

Would that be causing this to happen to a workstation if it is not turned off.

Usually it caused by a bad addon or update. which I disabled all addons and there were no recent updates.

I have the following code which works on IE and Chrome and iPad (iOS), but not an iPhone (iOS)

Does anyone know why - does iPhone IOS have a restriction that isn't on iPad (iOS)? Any insights would be appreciated.

I have Windows 10 pro (All uptodate), HP SLICE hardware, running latest google chrome... all videos, youtube, daily motion, msn, and streaming media... it will delay the video for 5 to 10 seconds but audio continues.   Happens everytime,... seems like this started in the last few weeks.  No chrome extensions... all have been disabled while troubleshooting.  I can allow or block popups and ads in settings and get same result.  Cant figure out what is causing.   I have uninstalled chrome and reinstalled to no avail.   If you use IE or Firefox... no issues whatsoever with video... so this is isolated to Chrome.  When the video freezes.. it appears all of chrome is freezing at the same time... you can't click on anything, settings etc... until it unfreezes.   Please help

Google Chrome wav player display problem.  It looks like Google Chrome changed the display when a wav file is played. It used to be a short (18px high) rectangle. Now it is a taller (50px high) with rounded corners.  I have a script that displays the Chrome player in an iframe which I had to redesign because of the change. However I can't get the player display to align on the left:small wav displayWhen I make the iframe wider, the Chrome player display just moves to the right:wider wav display
Anyway to move the Chrome wav player display to the left margin?

Here is the code I'm using:
<a href='sample.wav' target='newframe'>
<div style='display:inline-block;height:50px;overflow:hidden;border-radius:25px;'>
<iframe name='newframe' frameborder='0' height='50' width='375'></iframe>

Open in new window

If I remark out the line with div inline-block (line 2), I get the same thing with square corners.

Also you may notice the play slider above is very short. If I play a wav file from another site it is longer:wav display with longer sliderIs there someway to get a longer slider?

Thanks

Scanning for browser plugins over a network...which tool(s) would be best suited?
Scanning for applications is pretty straightforward, but I would like to scan for Firefox, Chrome, etc. plugins/add-ins. Does anyone here have experience with tools that can accomplish this?

Problem: Difficulty downloading attachments or gmail in Chrome browser even after non-destructive refresh. This procedure did remove all software. I have Windows 10 64 bit on my hp desktop. It was functioning slowly, so I did I refresh without destroying all files. I did back up all my files onto an external hard driver.  Chrome browser is acting very slow,considering I just cleaned the computer.

I do have tons of bookmarks and a number of extensions. But if I go into gmail and try to download an attachment such as a photo, it hangs and takes forever. I just did a destructive refresh to my Windows 8.1 computer, and it is much faster, as you would expect with a clean computer.

Microsoft edge, on the other hand is very fast in comparison. But Chrome was never this bad, ever. I did update to latest version. Please help. Thanks in advance.

When I use Google Maps for example, I automatically get the map for the location I am at. There are much more examples like this, where my location is automatically given out to someone else. How can I get more control of this, and in particular be able to completely hide my location for anyone at all times? In Windows, Android and Mac?

I'm having an issue with any downloading documents from the internet. I have to download documents from various different websites multiple times a day and each time I try to open the download I get a message advising that the file contained a virus and had to be deleted. Is anyone else experiencing this? I have Windows 10 and I've tried fixing by performing updates. It looks like there is a Windows defender fix on the latest Microsoft updates but I've tried twice and my computer will not complete the update either.  Any idea what the issue is and how this can be fixed? This is really impacting my work flow. Any help would be appreciated!
