Im currently testing the following Group Policy from the Chrome admx Template.
This policy should deactivate or activate the Website Isolation setting for Chrome. The Registry key is changed / applied but it has
no effect in the Chrome settings. I tried it in User and Computer Configuration and with restart.
Has anyone else tried to apply this setting and experience the same issue or has any idea what could be the problem?

SitePerProcess
Enable Site Isolation for every site

Data type:
    Boolean [Windows:REG_DWORD]
Windows registry location for Windows clients:
    Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\SitePerProcess
Windows registry location for Google Chrome OS clients:
    Software\Policies\Google\ChromeOS\SitePerProcess
Mac/Linux preference name:
    SitePerProcess
Supported on:

        Google Chrome (Linux, Mac, Windows) since version 63
        Google Chrome OS (Google Chrome OS) since version 63

Supported features:
    Dynamic Policy Refresh: No, Per Profile: No
Description:

    NOTE: This policy is experimental and may break functionality! You might want to look at the IsolateOrigins policy setting to get the best of both worlds, isolation and limited impact for users, by using IsolateOrigins with a list of the sites you want to isolate. This setting, SitePerProcess, isolates all sites. If the policy is enabled, each site will run in its own process. If the policy is disabled, the pre-Site Isolation process management logic will take effect. …

Hello,

We have an inhouse developed WEB app (accessible from internal and external) which runs scripts when users click a report button and select date field.

In Chrome, users see a security warning "This page is trying to load scripts from unauthentication sources" - Plesae see attached.

In IE, I see similar script warning.  

I have realized if I go to IE options>Internet zone>misc and allow "Display Mixed Content", the message will be bypassed.

Is there another setting I should look at besides making that change in internet zone and make the browser safer?

I need to make the similar setting in Chrome.

In the end, I will need to use a GPO to tweak that browser setting for the users.

Thanks.

Hi all :)

I have a weird problem with chrome on a users PC.

When they open a new tab the annoying "recent sites" thumbnails appears however they are NOT any sites the user has been to plus when I hover over one no X appears at the top right so it is not possible to clear/delete it.

What could be causing this weird behaviour?

I have completely removed and reinstalled chrome but get the same behaviour.

I have attached a screenshot of the problem.

Thanks

A Yahoo user has reported that ever since the Yahoo website change around Christmas he has lost all of his contacts and notes.

I have verified that his contacts and notes are both empty.

What do we need to do to get his contacts and notes back within Yahoo? He reports that he has 10 years worth of data stored within the Yahoo contacts and notes and we can't afford to loose this data.

Yahoo recently changed their website layout and now several of my customers are unable to locate their Notes & Contacts within the new Yahoo.com website.

Where have these things gone or what is the process to locate them?

Good morning to whom this may concern,

We're currently in the process of upgrading our users OS from Win 7 to Win 10.
Some users have reported that when they've attempted to print images or documents from Microsoft Edge, or images from Photos on their system, the print option on their system is fine. However, when they go over to one of the network printers (Canon C5250i), nothing appears.
Other web browsers work fine (IE, Chrome, Firefox and Safari) and also users who still have Windows Photo Viewer installed on their system, are able to print from that.
I've done a test print to a local printer, from Edge and Photos, but they seem to print fine.

Has anyone else experienced this issue, and how they were able to resolve this?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I'm trying to understand some unexpected behaviour here, I know that an AJAX could be a solution to resolve it but that does not help me understand this behaviour, so I'm looking for an answer to that. Can anyone help me?

I came accross the below issue:

1: user clicks a button
2: a js function is called to check the input of the form field and if accepted will submit the form to save_to_db.php in an iframe.
3: in the iframe, save_to_db.php will save the form details to the db and calls another js function that updates the contents of html elements on the current page showing the latest status.

This used to work without any issues (and still does in most browsers).

But now in Chrome Mobile browser version 63.0.3239 somehow every link a user clicks after they clicked the button, will load to save_to_db.php (the form action of the button) instead of the link that is clicked.

Has anyone noticed this or similiar behaviour or does anyone know why this happens?

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Hello Experts - I am running Server 2008 R2 with Office 2007 and IE8.  I need to upgrade to IE11 as some of the third party sites we work with are no longer compatible with IE8-IE10.

I have an Access application that currently works extremely well retrieving files from IE8, however, when I try to use this with IE11 the Open/Save/Save As bar at the bottom is a problem.

If I am retrieving a file that has a direct url to the file that includes a .xls file extension, then the file will open without the download bar.  If I am in a site and the application navigates to a url that does not have a .xls file extension included, or one that is for a file type other than pdf or xls, or one that is within a site that requires a login first to download the file, then the download bar appears.

Direct URL w/File Extension Example - http://www.plazahomemortgage.com/Documents/Rates/Plaza_JAX_Rates.xls
URL w/o File Extension Example - http://h2o.caliberdirect.com/Utilities/PublicOpenDocument.aspx?c=ICAgICAgNzcyNUBAMTNAQDU2QEAxMAAA

I have tried several different solutions for editing the registry, but I am either doing it wrong, or it isn't working.

I can run this same Access application on a Windows 10/Office 2016/IE11 setup and the download bar does not appear.

Switching to Chrome/Selenium is not an option; I don't have time to learn Selenium right now, and the Security Team won't approve Selenium for install.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello everybody,

I often get the message "Microsoft.com is not responding" when using Edge while the exact same page opens fine on Firefox and Chrome. Do you have any ideas? I am running Windows 10 (1703 OS build 15063.786) and Edge 40.15063.674.

Thank you in advance

Starting yesterday evening, I'm frequently seeing the following message. Seems to occur when opening/working with Chrome.

Google msg (1 of 2)
When I click to show details, i see:

Google msg (2 of 2)
These msgs persist even after restarting.

How can I tell if this thing is a legitimate Google update, or a virus/malware?
How can I turn off this notification?

Additional info. (May or may not be relevant):
1. My machine restarted overnight without my asking for a reboot.
2. When I first stated up this morning, I saw a msg that my snipping tool was not functional....including something about contacting my system administrator. That issue resolved on its own.
3. While not actively working in Chrome, I saw it (on its own) navigate to my default page (page that comes up when I start it. Not sure if this behavior was a delayed start, or something else.

Thanks.

Hi,
 
 
 Due to corrupted user profile in Windows 10, I had to create a new use profile after renaming old profile with _old.
 New User profile: C:\Users\Bob
 Old Use profile:     C:\users\Bob_old.

 How can I transfer favorites in Mozila Firefox and Google Chrome under old user profile to new user profile? I did not create any backup under old user profile and I can't log back in to old user profile.

Thanks.

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

I'm making a chrome extension, and basically id like to be able to pass it a certain word - like "Dog" and then it will click on every instance of "Dog" on the page. It should have a small time limit between each click. How would I do this? Whenever I've attempted this before I haven't been able to get it to work.

Edit: It’s for a bot to follow people on social medias

Right now I am having this problem with hundreds of Windows 10 machines across many customers. Not all machines are having this issue at those customers.

On the computers having this problem, I am unable to load pdf files on dynamically generated websites. Below is an example url to a pdf.
https://example.website.com/default.aspx?tabid=5&tabindex=1&tabname=Order Detail&OrderID=495724
In Edge and Internet Explorer, a URL like this will trigger a download notice. If I save or save as, it will want to save as a txt file. If I rename the extension after saving to PDF it will not open in Acrobot.

If I go to a url like this https://example.website.com/test.pdf  Edge will attempt to load it multiple times then fail with the following error message

This page is having a problem loading.

However, in Internet Explorer the pdf opens just fine as long as it's a definitive path to a .pdf file.

I have tried the following
Deleting temporary internet files and caches.
Restore/Reset Internet advanced options
Added URL/Reset Trusted sites
Uninstalled/Repair latest version of Adobe Acrobat
Disabled Windows Firewall and Antivirus (temporarily to test)

Firefox and Chrome work fine but cannot be used in these environments due to Browser standardization around Edge/IE in locally developed or government applications.

Anyone else run into this recently or have any ideas on what to do to resolve this issue?

Update: This is now occurring with any file such as exe, …

Hi

we have a number of chromebooks that need access to chrome admin for initial configuration. During initial config we deploy wifi settings and certificates. But the initial config needs to be access through an open or easily accessible network, preferably with destionation limitations,
so which URLs and which ports need to be opened? cannot find anything online

My goal is just to write a procedure to periodically make web requests and see the server latency - just to test the ISP's server response times 24/7 - with C#.
I'm going spare trying to get BrowserMobProxy to run, it runs OK in the standalone with selenium/I've tried both Chrome + FF , but the HAR files come back empty.
I only want the server latency, is there any native C# way of getting the request timings?
