Web Browsers





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.

Weird issue, I have a client connecting to a test site and it works with Chrome but it won't work with IE. Everyone else in the department can access but her. Any ideas?

i have end dates that are stored in the database as: February 15, 2018 10:9:29

one is created from edge browser, one from chrome and one from FF. all of them are stored with the same string.
but all these browsers interpret the date differently. i attach the console images:
edge interpret all of them.
chrome and FF see the one that was created with edge as Invalid Date
also, FF interpret the date differently than chrome.

the aim is to delete the record if the date and time has past. so i have this:
let today = new Date();
console.log('today: ',today);
          data.forEach((data) => {

            if( new Date(data.enddate) < today  ){
              //delete automatically hangouts which are past due date
              console.log('in the past: ',new Date(data.enddate));
              console.log('not in the past: ',new Date(data.enddate));


Open in new window

the issue is that the deletion obviously does not work with the Invald date.

any idea?

Can anyone remind me how to disable right-click using JS/jQuery?

Also, although doubtful, as I'm working with sensitive data, is it possible to disable copying, highlighting, Ctrl+C,Alt+Print Screen, and other methods of replicating the data?

Thank you..
How to force newly launched Chrome to  be a certain size and  position. I want to have Chrome always open up at a certain place on my screen and have it be a certain size on every opening.  How do I accomplish this?
Google Chrome Captcha issue.

Hi, we've been getting the captcha challenge when doing normal web browsing searches. Reading the online help I understand that it could be caused by many factors, we're a small business of about 100 computers, no way i can check each machine. I'm looking at web traffic on the FW and nothing stands out, have you dealt with the same issue with that many devices? if so how did you handle it?  

when i click a link [such as http://www.experts-exchange.com/] i get this error box:

chrome.exe - Application Error
The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000034). Click OK to close the application.

this happens sometimes, but not always. if i copy/paste the link, it works fine. if i kill chrome and start a new instance, it seems to fix it for short while.
this just started recently. what could be causing this?

Is this a legit site? I am sick of scams

Issue #1: I currently have 1 gig Internet speed (service) from my local cable provider BlueStream.  For months I have had an annoying intermittent problem with their service.  There are times when the service will completely go down multiple times in one day, but each time it goes down, it may be for only 1 or 2 minutes and then it right back up as if nothing had happened.  The modem did NOT reboot, perhaps the indicator light may go out and back on, but that's it.  This happens about 5 or 6 days per month, sometimes more.  

Issue #2: The second issue is when I go to ANY random site, the web page will NOT load properly or not load at all.  However, as soon as I hit F5 to reload it pops right on in a millisecond.  I get this on 3 different browsers, Edge, Firefox and Chrome.  I have tested my connection MANY times using http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest and usually the tests results are very good to excellent. BlueStream has been out to my home 5 different times for these issues.  I am on my 4th modem and two different models.  They have also rewired the outside lines and checked most everything outside of my house.  Nothing has fixed this issue.  

In contrast, I disconnected my ethernet connection and reconnected to my internet hot spot on my iphone and at only 8MB/s I was loading pages faster with no problems as I outlined in issue #2.

By pure luck, the last time they were out they actually SAW this problem "live" for the first time (Issue #2) and saw it happen.  …
A friend is continually being signed out of his Google accounts on his computer.

I have checked his cookies setting in Chrome, logged in to each of his accounts. when I close Chrome and re-open all his accounts have to be signed in again.

I have tested this on my computer in Chrome and his accounts stay signed in after I close and reopen Chrome.

I have reset his Chrome, cleared his cookies and other site data and his cached images and files. After logging back in to each account and setting each page to reopen they have to be signed into again after I close and reopen Chrome.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome. Signed into each account, set them to "open a specific page or set of pages". Closed Chrome and reopened and again have to re-sign into each of his Google accounts. I am at my wits end...Please help!!
I have a user with IE11 and windows 7 and it seems that an old password is being saved in one of the logins for a program she needs to get to. It works in Chrome however, it is affecting programs in IE.  Is there a tool I can use to clean up the passwords.  I know deleting the users profile will clean up the issue however the user will not allow me to do so.  I've tried resetting the browser, clearing the cache and all save passwords and it's still showing up.  Is there anything else I can possibly do?

Hi Experts,

I would like to copy all links displayed on a specific page, including sub-links.
For example the following
How can I accomplish that?
With the Ranorex test tool, I want to open one of the established browsers in "normal" window state with a predefined fixed size. I know that it is possible to open a browser maximized state. From C#, it is also possible to open a window beside this in minimized or normal state, although I am first interested in the recording modules.

What I need is to open i.e. the Google Chrome browser with 400×600 pixels exactly. We need such tests, as the software appearance differs from one resolution to another (app appearance, Web appearance, etc.).

Thank you for your help!
Hi Experts,

I'm running Windows 10 Pro.

Just in the last hour or so I cannot get File Explorer or Chrome to open.
Other apps, e.g. Firefox, Edge and MS Access, all open OK.

After clicking the icons on the taskbar I can see the "previews" of these apps - so they are starting up, but not displaying the full GUIs.

I have rebooted.

sfc /SCANNOW does not report any errors.

Hi One page is always my startup page. I want to remove it, but I cannot in Firefox and Chrome.

Here are steps I used:

How do I change my start page in Firefox?
Change Startup Page. On any open Mozilla Firefox window, press “Alt-T,” and then select “Options” on the drop-down menu. Under the General tab, insert the URL of a website or Web page into the field next to “Home Page,” and then click “Use Current Page” to make it your default startup page.

After I did above, it is still there when i start Firefox in Win8

Anyone has some suggestion? Thank you
When I use firefox it asks me if I want notifications from sites a lot.  Is there anyway to shut this off so that it does not continue to popup?
Could someone give me a method using js or html to create a link that will open in chrome (IE is the default browser for our company)  I have been researching and as far as I can tell there is no method.
After installing Chrome on this new PC with Windows 10, I get nothing but a blank screen, please see attached. I have done the following:

uninstalled and re-installed
ran the chrome removal tool
deleted the google folder from the user profile
ran CCleaner to repair the registry
Nothing has resolved this issue, any suggestions?
I just rebooted my computer; FireFox now has no tabs for multiple sites. How do I get that back?

Why do they do these things?

Hello. I have a simple .net site with just a few pages and links.  The problem is that the page shows up fine in Chrome and Firefox but in IE 11 it isn't showing my CSS styles.  Seems like it isn't reading my CSS files.  

Here is my head where I link to bootstrap and my stylesheets.
<head runat="server">
    <link href="/igc.ms.styles.css?ver=1" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <link href="/core.css?ver=1" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.0.0-alpha.6/css/bootstrap.min.css" integrity="sha384-rwoIResjU2yc3z8GV/NPeZWAv56rSmLldC3R/AZzGRnGxQQKnKkoFVhFQhNUwEyJ" crossorigin="anonymous" />

    <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Shrikhand" rel="stylesheet" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js.js?ver=1"></script>

This is my header and nav bar that are on every page.  None of these styles will display in IE 11

Hi all,

Yesterday I was cleaning up code for a friend's website, and I have found a rather bizarre pixel shift issue with inline-block elements. I have a group of images all the same size with inline-block assigned to them, and the bottom row isn't aligning perfectly with the other rows. This issue shows up both in Chrome and Opera, and it also only seems to affect the bottom row. I understand that the browser can render white space around inline-block elements, so I removed all the white space, and yet this issue is still present. I would really prefer not to use floats since I want the ability to center the elements. Maybe there's something obvious I'm missing here. Anyway, here's my code and examples, I stripped out everything but the problem, it's pretty straightforward:

An example page is here.

Here's a picture of the issue isolated, it shows up on both bottom rows in Chrome/Opera:
Inline-Block Elements Misaligned
.albumlinks {
	display: inline-block;
	vertical-align: middle;
img.albumimages {
	border: 0;

Open in new window

 <a class="albumlinks" href="#"><img class="albumimages" src="image-example.jpg" alt="Image Example"></a><a class="albumlinks" href="#"><img class="albumimages" src="image-example.jpg" alt="Image Example"></a><a class="albumlinks" href="#"><img class="albumimages" src="image-example.jpg"

Open in new window

Two Experts and I thought this was solved. It is not. Here are some of the facts:
1. Computer is  a Dell M4800 workstation laptop with premium 3200 x 1800 display.
2. I have always had it set at native resolution and magnification set to 200% which is the recommended setting.
3. When opening most any website it will be normal resolution. When I click to most  any other linked site the res goes down to an unreadable 25%. Both Chrome and Firefox exhibit this problem.
4. I have already  removed ALL  extensions and rebooted but the problem still shows up.
5. If,  when it is showing in 25% i change the setting to 100% and return to the  previous  page  the previous page still is OK at 100%, but when returning to the previous page I find that it has reverted back to  25%.
6. In the hopes my video driver was out of date I did install the latest version Nvidia. It did not make any difference.
7. Nothing else seems be be giving any problems with this computer.

How can I keep Chrome to stay at 125% instead of seemingly changing at random to 25% ?  Windows 10, Dell M4800 Laptop. New Nvidia driver. ( Had same  problem before new driver also.)
I have heard that it is near impossible to clear Chrome browsing history. What is the best solution? I am not against paying for a utility that will accomplish this task if it is something that takes many steps to perform manually. NOTE: I will NOT be able to reply to this question for perhaps two days so please don't get upset if I don't reply in a "timely manner".
