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.

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.

Announcing the Most Valuable Experts of 2016

MVEs are more concerned with the satisfaction of those they help than with the considerable points they can earn. They are the types of people you feel privileged to call colleagues. Join us in honoring this amazing group of Experts.

I would like to point out that since Chrome's recent update,
I now have to re-input all my previous saved passwords and some are
missing in action :(

Has anyone experienced the same and is there a fix, even though it is too late now but
for the other members... =)

It seems since Mid 2017 that Microsoft is adding an interstitial advert at the top of every page when you visit a Microsoft site NOT using Edge like this:

edge advert
I have successfully used uBlock Origin to stop this by blocking the element - although, of course, Microsoft might be likely to change or randomize the element name...

Hey guys, I have a device that's unable to play audio from a website. the website is using .asx files to stream audio from the website to a media player. I have tried VLC and windows media player, both of which won't stream the audio. I have tried three different web browsers and they all have the same issue. I tried restarting the computer and logging in under a different account and I still get the error VLC is unable to open the mrl or windows media player couldn't open file. I tried turning off the antivirus and it still wouldn't play. The computer is the only one on the network having this issue.
I'm stumped and don't know what to try next besides restoring the computer.

On one of my domain workstations (and the only one of ten with this problem) the user sees errors like "Oops, something went wrong.  Our server team is looking at it."  This does not happen on all websites - in fact, only a couple.

I've tried using Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox (all three have been installed for some time.)  Same problem with all three.
I cleared cookies/cache/etc.  No help
I've tried logging on as an administrator.  No help.

Again, on all the other workstations (Win7 Pro/64) the error does not occur.

'Internet Options' Security Settings are the same on all workstations - internet set to 'Medium-High,' 'Run Protected Mode,' 'TLS settings' are the same.

I'm baffled.  I will say that we experienced a ransomware attack, and a lot of files from that workstation got deleted.  Could there be some core Windows file that got damaged on that workstation, but not others that were also hit by the malware?

I'm not opposed to re-installing Windows on that machine, but if there is a less destructive fix I'd love to hear it.  Thanks

I'm currently using Visual Studio Code. How can I use Visual Studio Code along-side my web browser to code in real-time and see the changes in real-time? Brackets have "Live in Preview", not seeing this in Visual Studio Code.

There is a drug information web site that I keep the box remember me checked so that I don't have to enter user name or password yet everytime I log in after restart I get asked to click on log in button at this point the user name and password are already filled out. How can I bypass this step and go into the website without having click on log in button every time. By the way the same thing happens with the experts exchange website. I use chrome browser and I have windows 10 OS

Many web pages get some crummy, unreadable, text.

Attached is PhpMyAdmin.

I have been told it's my default font that's broken.

Can anyone tell me how to change that?

Thanks

Hello.

I have a hosted Firefox browser in a Citrix environment.
The hosted Firefox is used simultaneously with the local Firefox on the user's PC (Windows 7).

I would like to change the Firefox.exe taskbar icon (when the process is running) on the Citrix server  (see the screenshot below).

I tried to use different "resource hacking tools" but so far no success.
Has anyone done this before ? is it possible?
Thanks.

What the * is going on? I've been away from development for a couple of years. Stepped back into it to help out a friend and I can't get any work  done because the friggin browser keeps pulling from cache. In Chrome, Safari or Firefox I use to be able to hold the shift key and click the refresh button to immediately see the changes I've made to a webpage. But today I'm having to clear the browser history and sometimes that doesn't even work.

What do I need to do to force the browse to download my changes? I'm just waisting time trying to decide if I did something wrong or the browser is not showing my  changes.

If I wanted to take my Wordpress site (hosted on AWS E2) live at 10:00 AM on a certain day, how best to do this?

Clearly the domain needs to be directed that site, and no one can guarantee show long that would take. Also, the real domain must point to the real site in order to get the SSL certificate purchased and installed. And I need to do a full test of features once its everything's intact.

But I need to hide it completely from view until 10:00 AM. I would like to literally flip a switch to take it online.

I was under the assumption that even if displayed a "Coming Soon" splash screen and hid the site behind a temporary login page for developers, that the entire site could still be consumed by web spiders. Is that true? Is there a way around this constraint?

So, I need to move the site to the correct domain but need it totally hidden until I flip the switch.

What shall I use as a deployment strategy?

Thanks.

I get an eeror page in Chrome

This page isn’t working

Chrome detected unusual code on this page and blocked it to protect your personal information (for example, passwords, phone numbers, and credit cards).

There certain chrome extensions that allow users to connect to their PC"s. Acting like RDP.

I do not want to block all extensions, just a select few.

Is there a way using GPO that you can block some Chrome Extensions?

Hi All,

Since my Google Chrome folder has been renamed to Google.old, due to startup problem, it doesn't keep my bookmarks anymore.

Each time I log off from Citrix I loose my bookmarks saved in Chrome.

Do you know how I can solve this issue?

Best regards,
Mallony

Hi Experts, In spite of the security reasons, Is there any possibilities to change the download location of the Google Chrome using JavaScript? Thank you!

When scrolling down the document in an iframe, and reach bottom, if keep spinning down the mouse wheel, the parent document starts scrolling. Browsers call it a "dispatch" of wheel event to parent. So it's not bubbling, as it's not within the same document. A new wheel event is created on parent.

Can this "dispatch" be prevented? How? (I use plain JavaScript.)
Is there any sample script available?

Hi Experts

Could you point what's necessary to make Firefox Network debbuger to retain the code is causing the error?

Accordingly to:

I'm using PHP/ Codeigniter - the controller's module f.e. that causes an error doesn't appear when it used to.

Thanks in advance!

I created a webpage that uses JQWidget to produce 3 graphs. The page displays fine initially but as the graphs refresh to display new data the Google Chrome crashing due to it running out of memory to view the page. (bug doesn't occur in Firefox or Chrome)

Aw, Snap! Google Chrome ran out of memory while trying to display this webpage.

I realize the graphs might use a lot of resources but I only have this issue in Chrome even after I clear the cache.

I am using Modernizr to detect if autoplay is available in the browser. Then, I am displaying either a video or a Javascript-based slide show depending on the result. Here is my code:

videoAutoPlayCheck=setInterval(videoCheckAutoPlay, 1000);
videoCheckAutoPlay();

function videoCheckAutoPlay(){
	Modernizr.on('videoautoplay', function(result){
		if (Modernizr.videoautoplay){
			//PLAY VIDEO
			window.clearInterval(videoAutoPlayCheck);
		} else {
			//PLAY SLIDE SHOW
			window.clearInterval(videoAutoPlayCheck);
		}
	});
}

Open in new window


I am getting unpredictable results in Chrome, however this seems to be working in all other browsers. Researching the issue on Google, there are posts from a couple years ago describing what I am seeing. However, I would have thought that enough time has passed that Modernizr would have fixed that issue.

To describe what is happening, sometimes Chrome loads the video, sometimes the slide show. There doesn't seem to be any way to predict... in fact, sometimes reloading the page brings the opposite result as the previous page load.

Is there anything wrong with my code, or is this still a known issue with Modernizr? Or should I be looking for some other solution?

Thank you.
