Hi, when I go to a link like: https://medlineplus.gov/feeds/topics/diabetes.xml  in IE(which I hate) or Firefox(which I no longer use, but I remember it did this), it shows the results in a user-readable manner, like:
But Chrome shows it like:
I don't want an RSS reader, I don't want to have to save feeds or subscribe, or get notifications. I just want to read the page. Is there a way to do this? Seems so silly that Chrome doesn't just do this. Thanks.
Hey guys-
I have two users that now face this problem.  I have an application that allows you to export the results you see on the screen to an excel file.  a week ago, chrome would show a little notification box that the download is complete and you could click that small pop up box and open the file directly from there.  Excel would then automatically open the file.

Now my users are only given the option to save the file to a location.  It is annoying for them.
How do i get this functionality back?  

Thanks everyone
Have multiple identical Windows 10 desktops on a network sharing a single Internet connection through a single router running DHCP. All systems are functioning fine except for one which recently lost ability to browse the web. Target system reports having Internet access and does file sharing and printing over network just fine, both using a Wi-Fi and wired connection. Have tried browsing with IE, Chrome and Edge and all fail same way.

Have run network diagnostics, changed target system ip address, flushed and renewed dns, restarted several times with no change. Windows updates are current. Will run netsh winsock reset in about 18 hours when I'm in front of target system to do so.

Any ideas or suggestions of where else to look is appreciated.

I have a single user that no matter what browser he uses it eats up all the available RAM on his PC.

For example, this morning he opened Chrome and let it sit there. A few minutes later, Task Manager showed that Chrome was using 2.5GB of RAM.

We see the same thing if he uses Internet Explorer.

This causes other programs to run slowly.

Any idea why this is happening?

I have a joomla site and a component that lets me display a google map on a page.  

However the map is not showing in the front end to the public.  (It is showing in the back end of the site -- so I know I have my Google Maps API key correct -- at least that is what I am assuming).

I have some security settings which might be preventing the display of the map on the page, but am not sure if that is the issue.

So to troubleshoot it I want to use Firebug to see if there is an error regarding the display of the map. Once I know that I can go into Joomla and make any security adjustments (if that is the issue) to allow the map to be displayed.

Here is a link to the page.


If you can either tell me how to use Firebug to see where the map is failing, or check it yourself and let me know why it is failing -- that is what I am looking for in this question.


Hi all,

Win 7
There has been a personal cert added to IE11, the problem has materialized since then. I am not saying this caused the issue but it may be possible. I have removed the cert but this has not fixed the issue.

the issue is

In webmail the user is unable to download attachments. The attachment seems available with its proper name and size, however when the link is clicked to download I am offered the opportunity to Open/Save/Save As/Cancel but I can do neither of them.

also, rather than the download 'pop-up' showing 'Do you want to open or save FILENAME ......' it show 'Do you want to open or save dlAttach_php?attachment=2&index blah blah' basically the link to the file not the file.

When the email is forwarded the recipient (in outlook) can open the attachments.

I can open the attachments in Chrome.

Any ideas appreciated
I have tried the 'rm -rf' on the folders that it says online are the cache folders for chrome, but was only lucky with clearing 1of the folders - ~/Library/Caches/Google/Chrome/Default/Cache.  I tried manually deleting the files from the other folder that a search result said was another chrome cache folder but the cookies did not clear.  

Stopped there, wondering if anyone has invented this wheel?  I am using Sierra OS X.  Thanks, Dawn
This issue only happens on Android phones.
We have an internal website which uses self-signed user certificates for authentication.
When a user connects to the website for the first time, chrome prompts them which certificate they want to use. Even though there is only one certificate to choose from.
Usually, just choosing once is enough until the user either turns off the phone or ends the chrome process. But some users say they still get prompted multiple times.

Is there a way that Chrome can be set to automatically use the user certificate installed on the phone so the user does not see this prompt?

We have an MDM solution that automatically installs the certificate on the phones - that part is not a problems. I asked them if they had a solution but their only response was to use their MDM browser instead of Chrome.

In Mac OS X and in both Firefox and Chrome, latest versions, new email in AOL doesn't appear unless I click on another folder such as Old Mail and then click on New Mail.

In the past, from time to time, I've had to follow this MO to see new mail, but now the site no longer delivers new mail automatically.

The fact that this is occurring in two browsers leads me to feel that this is an AOL problem and nothing I can at the moment do anything about. But your thoughts would be appreciated.

When viewing the "Answer Open Questions" page at Experts Exchange, I like to have the Author Name showing in the list of questions I'm presented.  Trouble is, the setting doesn't stick for me when closing a browsing session and then opening a new one later on or the next day.

I mainly use Google Chrome when hanging out at EE, but I've noted the same behavior using other browsers as well.

Here's a few screen grabs to illustrate what I'm talking about..

I switch Author Names on as follows..

and I get what I want as shown below.

The problem is that the above setting does not "stick", yet I can't seem to nail down the pattern to what makes it disappear on me.

Has anyone else struck similar behavior when viewing open questions?  
If so, were you able to resolve it?  Would love to know how if so.

Any takers? :)

I have the latest version of Chrome, and recently I started having an issue where randomly, sound would stop playing mid video. It starts again if I start the video again or reload the page.
I updated my sound drivers, but that didn't change anything. I am running Windows 10 Pro - Creators update and both Chrome and windows are up to date? Any ideas?

Using Nintex forms (v2.8.1.0) standard edition in SharePoint 2013 Enterprise - on prem.
I am running into difficulty trying to add a page break via CSS in my Nintex form before the Extra Info section (see Capture_Nintex_Form.png). I have specified a CSS class called pageBreak3 for a panel in my Nintex form (see panel.png). Whenever I select Print preview, the CSS does take affect. Please see my CSS below. I know page breaks are possible in my installed version of Chrome (v44) as I carried out the following test:
1) Created a simple HTML page and
2) applied a page break via CSS i.e. using @media print -> page break always.
Nintex Forms Enterprise has page break functionality out of the box, but that is not an option for us.

Any help is much appreciated.

CSS I am using:

/*This script changes the layout of the printed page */
@media print
    /*Hides the SharePoint blue nav bar at top of page and Content Type item details at end of form */
    #suiteBar, .nf-form-footer
        display: none;

        page-break-before: always;
Hi experts,

I'm setting up an Apache server to host new site of my company and I have a problem with few browsers.
When a JS file is modified The change takes effect only when we empty browser cache.

We would like the change to take effect when the user closes and reopens his browser.
Is there any settings I could add to my Apache conf to solve this?

Thank you,

When I search for 'test' in Google Chrome a white rectangle appears covering a big part of the website, disabling me from search further. Have you heard about this before? Can you help me? :)
