I find that im using explorer to surf, the site.  im using fire fox to enter chat.  im having to use chrome to post links from my photobucket account.  since ive become active ive tried to encourage other friends of mine to join.  the typical response is....."its a pain in the butt, my comp keeps stalling out and it wants me to approve non secure items to pass the f/wall." or "I click to join the chat and it just sits there at loading the chat room."

 

ideas?

I'd advise using Firefox in general. I've found that part of the problem is ads are not loading right but I haven't figured out why yet. Photobucket is a pain because it tends to not load things all the time. Putting up pictures on site I'd recommend using the "more reply options" at the lower right corner of the reply box and upload them from your computer as attachments, this seems to be the most dependable method.

 

In Firefox I advise using the add-ons Adblock Edge, Beef Taco and Better Privacy to improve security.

I would load pics the way KD said.Photo Bucket has a habit off taken down pics and it leaves big empty spaces on the threads.

Peace,

PB are you clicking on the shield icon at the top right corner and telling it to allow unsecured data?

I have had this problem also recently.

Peace Bro,

Blue

Sorry bro not sure what else to say.Tomorrow I will play around with it a little bit and see if there is a setting or something for ya. :)

i have a bypass for the chrome problem.

 

instead of launching chrome the regular way.... drag the icon onto your desktop and make a new shortcut for it.

 

right click the new shortcut and pick "properties"

in properties .....under the "shortcut" tab...... look for the box marked "target"

the box should have the path like:

 

C:\Users\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe

 

to bypass the security shield, you need to add a flag line to that target command

after the ".exe" add a space and the flag line     "--allow-running-insecure-content" 

so it looks something like this :

 

C:\Users\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --allow-running-insecure-content

 

hit OK

 

and then try chrome with the new shortcut..... problems should be gone

 

when you run chrome with the flag like this, it allows videos and chat to work fine

 

i still have the original icon to start chrome the traditional way.  and i have the new icon that starts it with the security flag.

Since I put in my windows updates I just need to click on the shield once when I log in and I'm good to go.

 

Thanks for that info Turf.

 

Peace,

Blue
