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'd like to also read in the values from an external source (i.e csv).
Is this possible with a bookmarlet?

I want to setup a 'do not block flash on google chrome' policy via GPO.  

Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\PluginsAllowedForUrls\1 = "https://www.example.com"


There is a msi google chrome installer GPO in Computer Configuration/Policies/Software Settings/Software Installation.

My questions are,
 1) should I create a new policy for the flash?  
2) Or add it to the installer policy/MSI?
3) I am not sure where to add the registry tweak above, in Preferences?  

Could someone give me a basic road map as to how to implement this.

I submitted the following a few days ago:

"One of our users has had an issue where his computer will restart unexpectedly, and upon restarting, the settings page in chrome for incompatible applications opens up. The first time it happened, the application listed was an Intel driver, which I applied an update to. It has since happened several times, and still shows the Reset and Clean up page, but now with no incompatible applications show up. The user has not been doing anything out of the ordinary, and there are no windows error messages, save for an unexpected shutdown flag in the logs (ID 6008)."

This past Monday, we updated the version of Chrome that was being used, and asked that the client notify us if the issue persisted. This morning, it happened again. We are trying to convince the client to use another browser for a few days to see if the issue is Chrome, but we are not sure how to resolve the issue whether or not it is Chrome causing the problem.

Win7Pro/64. Firefox latest version. Friend was copying some data from my machine and using Firefox. Next day, the Firefox screen was in the middle of my dual monitor setup, 1/3 on one side of bezels, rest on the other. I've read about this problem on single monitors where only a third or half of the FF screen comes up. I tired all the suggestions - deleting the two files always mentioned, looking for something in the FF profile that might affect this. I can grab and move the screen, but the position will not stick after FF shutdown and restart - only half the window shows, or in my case, window split between two monitors. Again, I've tried all the Mozilla forum suggestions save a reset/refresh. This does not happen with any other program.

Hello,

How do you revert back to a previous version of Google Chrome?

Sometime yesterday I noticed a change in the appearance of Google Chrome, in that the address bar now has a light blue border as shown in the following screenshot:

2018-09-07a.png
My current version of Google Chrome:
2018-09-07b.png
However, sometime later I went to join some friends playing a game at a website called slither.io (where players compete as snakes of different colors and sizes). However, after beginning to play, I noticed that the game image was jiggling or shaking to the point that I had to turn it off. The frame of the window itself does not move but the entire image (background and players) trembles as you might expect a picture on the wall to tremble during an earthquake.

The shaking movement is accompanied by a significant lag. I have experienced lag issues in the past but they always manifest as a sudden freeze for 2-3 seconds followed by a catch-up burst to put everything into its real-time position.

Interestingly, the shaking and lag become much worse by going into a congested area (ie the more snakes in the field of view, the worse the movement), and is almost nonexistent if you are in the outskirts with no one else around.

I've searched Google quite a bit for a solution and have tried each of the following:

• Zoom in/out
• Restart Chrome
• Restart computer
• Empty the Chrome history
• Chrome > Show advanced settings > scroll down to…

Introduction to Web Design

Introduction to Web Design

Develop a strong foundation and understanding of web design by learning HTML, CSS, and additional tools to help you develop your own website.

Have a small network of windows computers and a few servers.  The boss wants to be able to watch tv using diynetwork.com or hgtv.com (Same TV provider, different site).  If you go to watch live TV and click the play icon that is overlayed the video or click the "sign in to your provider" button at the top right, nothing happens at all.  This happens on all workstations and servers on the network.  No other DNS or internet issues exist.  I've tried Edge, IE, Chrome, and Firefox and all have the same issue.  I've put chrome in guest mode (Shift+Ctrl+N), and still has the issue.   I've checked security settings, java, activex, compatibility view, cleared temporary files.  I've temporarily disabled all security on the Sonicwall and I've checked group policy but nothing has worked.  Any ideas?

IE 11, in WIn 10, 1803 attempts to open, but after a few seconds of trying to open, it just closes by itself.  It just started doing this a day or so ago.
Really weird.  Firefox and Chrome work fine.  Edge works fine as well.

Any ideas?

I am working to create a login prompt and I do not want the browser to offer the remember username and password option for the user. I am using a text box for the username field and a password box for the password field. Anytime I use a password box the browser prompts the option whether to remember username and password or not. I would like my users to type in those information each time they login. Is there any way I could use a text box to accept password and mask the characters in that textbox as a password character so that the browser does not prompt the remember username and password option?

Hi Guys,

I need to apply a Google Chrome extension to Group Policy.
The directions are as follows, but I am unable to find correct path/container.

"Next step is to open Group Policy Management Console and Edit the group policy object."
"Navigate to User Configuration > Policies > Google > Google Chrome > Extensions."

Any ideas are welcome ...

Hi,
Chrome Version 68.0.3440.106 (Official Build) (32-bit)

I am applying Chrome whitelist extensions via GPO in HKLM an HKCU.  If I set the HKLM whitelist extensions then HKCU whitelist extensions do not get loaded and do not appear in chrome://policy/

If I remove the HKLM whitelist extensions (and set to not configured) then the HKCU whitelist extensions load correctly.

Is this a bug or a feature?

Thanks
Damien

For a project I am doing, I have to work with a primary gmail address and an alias.  It wasn't my choice for it to be an alias, rather than a separate gmail account, and unfortunately I can't change this.

I am having trouble keeping things nicely compartmentalized.  What I wanted to do:

Sign into primary in Firefox, and set this primary address to be the default.

Sign into alias in Chrome, and set this alias address to be the default.

It's not working.  When I change the settings in one browser, that affects the settings in the other browser.

How can I set things up to avoid confusion and possible errors in my outbound email messages?

CompTIA Network+

CompTIA Network+

Prepare for the CompTIA Network+ exam by learning how to troubleshoot, configure, and manage both wired and wireless networks.

Having a very strange issue whereby a few webpages do not display correctly on all computers in the office (including a mobile phone  - not on the company domain).
Two examples are speedtest and westin (see below)

speedtest.net page
westin.JPG
As such I am doubting the issue is related to any specific computer. Have spoken with the ISP (BT) and they say if they come and visit they will charge if it is not a BT related broadband issue. I am guessing the issue must be either on the router or somehow network related. I have tried local stuff like flushing the DNS, changing DNS to  8.8.8.8 etc but running out of ideas, apart from perhaps resetting the router. Apparently all was working fine up until a couple of days ago on this network. Any help/ideas would be appreciated.

I am working on a performance improvement of our website (https://now.tirehub.com) .  and this thing caught my attention when I was looking at Dynatrace “Real User Monitoring” . when I looked at waterfall chart of page load , I saw all the resources are getting loaded irrespective of browser Cache.

 
I was pretty sure something is wrong with our cache headers (feel free to click the link to see headers), but there was nothing wrong there . Then as usual I opened developer tool to see if browser is caching JS /CSS and figured that no matter what page I go to – JS and CSS are not getting cached by Chrome , although images and font files we cached.
 
Then I installed firefox and opened developer tool there. It indeed was caching JS / CSS as expected. Then I thought that it could  be chrome developer tool , but there are thousand of request recorded by  Dynatrace “Real User Monitoring” showing the same behavior.

 I am definitely missing something but don’t know what.

Many Thanks in Advance

Hi,

We have the following Javascript code that is used on our intranet to hide/show side menus.

This code has been working perfectly fine for the last year or so and was written by someone who no longer works for the company. However over the past couple of days the side menus have stopped working in Google Chrome on all computers.

We are getting the following error:


Error

function show(menuChoice)
	{
		var el = document.getElementById(menuChoice);
		if ( el.style.display != 'none' )
			{
				Animation(document.getElementById(menuChoice)).to('height', '0px').to('opacity', 0).hide().go();
			}
		else
			{
				Animation(document.getElementById(menuChoice)).to('height', 'auto').from('0px').to('width', 'auto').from('0px').to('opacity', 1).from(0).blind().show().go();
			}
	}

function hide(menuChoice)
	{
		var el = document.getElementById(menuChoice);
		if ( el.style.display != 'none' )
			{
				Animation(document.getElementById(menuChoice)).to('height', '0px').to('opacity', 0).hide().go();
			}
		else
			{
				
			}
	}

Open in new window


Thanks, Greg

A client has an ACER ChromeBook and runs a program called HUDL.
Recently when he views the videos, the application closes with no errors and to return to it, he has to restart the browser and connect to HUDL again.
After some research on this computer, I found that when I tried to update the browser it came up with a message stating :

End of support >> see the attached file for the screen shot.

Does this mean that the laptop can no longer handle the newer technology of this website?

and if so what are my options?

thanks in advance.

Error when accessing SharePoint externally via Internet Explorer with URL in Local Intranet Zone Internet Explorer

After a migration from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2016, users accessing SharePoint externally using Internet Explorer receive the error;

The connection to the website was reset.
 
Error Code: INET_E_DOWNLOAD_FAILURE

I have isolated it to having the URL “sharepoint.domain.com” added to the “Local Intranet” Zone in Internet Explorer.

Users that are internal/VPN or that are using Chrome, are not impacted.

If I remove our SharePoint from the Local Intranet zone, we lose our Single Sign on and everybody in the agency has the enter their credentials every time to access SharePoint.


I confirmed that we are not having this issue in our 2013 environment.
