Browsers/Mail :: IE 9 / 10 And 11 Does Not Open Webpages Full
Nov 20, 2013
I have had this problem with all 3 versions of Explorer. If I open a website, as an example RUN: bing.com the pages open full screen. If I use the shortcut on the desktop it opens short about 2 inches on the bottom and another weird thing is that I have a PC right next to this one, the page will open short about 2 inches on the right side of the screen. I have had to resort to Firefox and I have no problems at all.
I am running Win 8.1 on one machine and Win 8 on the other. I had the same problems with XP and Win 7.
I have Windows 8 and no matter what browser I use, it takes a long time to load any page on a website. It had worked great until about a month ago. We have two other computers in the house (one with XP and one with 7) they seem not to have issues, so I don't think it is a connection issue. The XP is a laptop, the 7 is a desktop.
My internet is currently not loading pages properly since I starting using a Telsta modem that came with the internet bundle (T-Box and Modem set). My D-Link modem stopped working due to old age I guess and doesn't turn on anymore. So I set-up the Telstra modem (with the included filter that I was using on my old modem, the D-Link and pages were loading fine).
For example when I try to load Facebook sometimes or Twitch.tv it does not load the page, sometimes only the text-based version on Facebook and Twitch.tv but sometimes on Facebook images and video's don't load. But on Youtube it works fine and loads videos perfectly like my old modem does. But some / most websites don't load.
I think I am close to being capped (but not sure why that would allow Youtube videos to load in 720 / 1080p)
I used to have this problem long time ago, it disappeared, but it came back again. Basically, whenever I load up a webpage, via chrome, internet explorer or anything, sometimes it would fail to go to the website entirely and give me an erorror that the website is not found without even checking with the server (I know cause it happens as soon as i click enter with no query to the server whatsoever), when I click refresh or go again, it then loads. Sometimes webpages doesn't load properly, elements of pages go missing like pictures, layout messes up, etc.
This is not related to web browser only, as Steam also does those problems while browsing through the store.

IE opens, but doesn't function properly, won't display web pages and the settings are all greyed out. running 8.1 Pro with Media Center 64 bit. Ran SFC/Scan, but got the error that it found corrupt files but couldn't repair them. Then I couldn't find the file cbs.log to see. I also turned off IE11 rebooted and turned it on then rebooted with the same result. I did have a virus (which I can't remember the name). that is gone but now this.
Here is screen shot, it is small. It is just a "white screen"
I have three Windows PCs - 1 Windows 7 Pro laptop, a Windows 7 Home Prem PC and a Surface Pro (Win 8 Pro).
Lately (the past month or so) I have had trouble opening a couple of webpages, notably en.wikipedia.org from the Win 8 Surface Pro. Sometimes it opens OK, many times it fails to open, with the spinning wheel on the tab. It times out.
The other PCs have no problem opening wikipedia whilst this problem is evident on the Win 8 Surface Pro. This problem exhibits itself whether I use my default FF browser, or if I use IE as browser - same problem.
If I use Control Panel > Network > Properties and DISABLE IPv6, then wikipedia opens fine right away.
A reboot of the Surface Pro fixes it for a while, but it returns. A reboot of the router (Linksys E4200) also seems to improve the situation, temporarily.
When ever I click a mailto link in either Chrome, IE, Firefox and Opera it opens up a new chrome browser window. Before I installed windows 8 I had it opening up Outlook 2010 new email, now it opens up a new Chrome browser window.
How do I change it in windows 8 to when I click a link in any browser to open up Outlook 2010 new email as it did before?
(I don't use IE a lot ) I run a completely updated Windows 8.1 (home?) edition operating system so the browser I take it should be fully updated already. I have tried opening it directly from the local directory for it and also running as an administrator and neither would make it open.
There is no error message and there is no direct indication in the processes currently running under task manager that shows that it has booted up and is just not responding.
I thought maybe I could uninstall it but... then I look under program and features and I didn't see any relative program to uninstall for it. I remember a few years back uninstalling like version six or seven under a xp operating machine but that was ages ago.
When I open Chrome on my desktop, Windows 8 opens up a new window to view Chrome. How can I open chrome like how Windows 7 does it? I want to be able to open Chrome and Microsoft Word and view them both side by side.
Google Chrome opens fine when I've just started it. If I close it accidentally or forgot something and have to reopen it after I close it, it will not open. It's almost as if it isn't closing properly but when I check task manager it does not show it running. I have to wait 20 - 30 min. to open it again. I've reinstalled and it still does this. I've tried to find tech support for a free product on Google Chrome sites, but they only support free the products you purchase.

I am trying to open a webpage [URL] in my laptop (Acer) but am unable to open it after entering username and password.
I am able to open it from my another laptop (Dell).
All I am getting is continuous circling of java after entering my login details. In the laptop where it is getting opened, after entering my login details, I straightaway get a pop up of security warning of do you want to run this application - but not in where it is not getting opened. After entering my login credentials, Java message just keeps circling. I compared java in both laptops,microsoft silverlight package, adobe flash,shockplayer,internet options,firefox options but still unable to proceed further after entering my login details. OS is Windows 8.1,jave installed is latest both 32 and 64 bits.Java verify is detecting java working fine,java settings shows it is enabled in browser I already uninstalled anti-virus and tried but still no success so re-installed antivirus.
I have 8.1 with IE11 which will not run or open. In desktop mode the icon lights up for about 3 seconds, no window ever shows up and then the icon goes back to normal. In metro mode it spins and maximizes on the screen but then goes away before anything else happens. I've tried several things to get this fixed including...
netsh winsock reset at DOSremoving IE11 and adding back via Turning on or off Windows features in "Programs and Features"Removing any and all AV or Firewall software.Applying all Windows updatesResetting IE11 using its own reset button in "Internet Options"
Other browsers such as Chrome seem to work fine. I can ping by IP and name so I don't think its IP stack related.
When opening any browser on my pc, I get a band of white across the page with the following message:
"A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer. This program does not have a valid digital signature that verifies the publisher."
Name: C:WindowsSystem32MacromedFlashFlashUtil_ActiveX.exe. Then there is a choice of 'Yes' in grey, or 'No' in blue. If I click on the 'No' box 3 times the band disappears. The string leads to an 'Adobe Flash Player Utility'.
If I open the box it gives me an alternative to 'Quit' or 'Uninstall'. When I 'Uninstall', it states that the program has been successfully uninstalled. However, the string is still there and the same problem exists when opening a browser.
When I right click on the last part of the string & select 'Delete', a box titled 'File Access Denied'. 'You require permission from TrustedInstaller to make changes to this file.
I have used Google Chrome browser for years. Suddenly, it crashed. I uninstalled and reinstalled. No luck. Uninstalled with RevoUnistaller and deleted registry entries and leftover files. Reinstalled several times. No luck. IE, Firefox, etc. all work fine. Have 64bit computer with Windows 8.1 fully updated. Tried stable versions, beta, etc. Crashed when I try to open.
I got a HP Envy m6 Sleekbook laptop about three months ago. I installed Firefox and Chrome right away, although I used Firefox almost exclusively.
After about a month, Firefox just stopped working. I would click the icon, and it would light up (and the blue circle would appear over the cursor) as if it was about to open, but after a few seconds it stopped loading and the icon went back to normal, as if I had never clicked it. It just kind of... gave up. I restarted the computer and tried opening it from a different shortcut, and then directly from the file, but the problem persisted.
I tried uninstalling and re-installing Firefox twice, but it didn't solve the issue. Finally, I abandoned Firefox and switched to using Chrome.
Now, after using Chrome without a hitch for almost two months, Chrome has spontaneously started exactly the same behavior- BUT now I can open Firefox.
I'd really like to keep using Chrome, since I finally had it set up the way I like (I have quite a few bookmarks and quirky little preferences).
another one of those annoying little things, how to stop the annoying Checking Compatibility Ad ons pop up every time I open Firefox. I dont want it, dont need it - so where do I 'switch' it off? I have check through settings cant see it anywhere.
Likes to use the Windows 8 Start Screen that has all the tiles on it. Normally, she clicks on the "Mail" icon to get to her email, but now when she clicks on the icon it doesn't go to her email and instead it goes straight to her desktop. I tried clicking another icon; the "weather" one, and it too goes to the desktop. She told me she downloaded a couple games from iWin a few days ago and I noticed a new toolbar in her browser so I tried disabling that, but no change. I've checked what the default browser is, Internet Explorer (what she normally uses). I also tried making Chrome the default browser but still no change.
I had windows 7 and outlook express on it. The computer crashed. I had to get a whole new computer with windows 8 and just outlook. I have a folder with all my old outlook express emails in it but it is not compatible with outlook and I NEED an email in the old outlook express file. How the heck can I get this? When I try to open the old files it says " must be opened with outlook".
