Using Chrome a while ago I noticed an odd bug where all links to youtube videos or channels would go direct to the homepage (with the full video URL in the address bar) and without me logged in. Trying to log in from here just refreshes to the same point, not logged in. The same thing started happening with reddit and one other site for a little while, so I switched to firefox. Firefox was fine until today, and now the same thing with youtube is happening there, except worse. Before with Chrome, I could click links on youtube that weren't on the homepage and they would work, but now with Firefox this also leads back to the homepage. Googling this issue didn't find it as a thing anyone else is experiencing. Any idea what the issue might be?

(No issues with IE so far but I've only tried it a bit)

I use IE6 with W98SE ona [email protected],256MB pc133 ram.The problems started about three weeks ago.The first problem,and it still is,when I click on a link on a web page, my home page and even on some links on this site,all i get is asmall square IE box without any thing in it. And the indicater that spins to show data is coming in stays spinning.The top of this IE box,which is about 3 or 4 inches square,only has the top most line with the name in it and the address line.I have to go toView,toolbars,and put 'standard buttons' back in so that I can hit 'stop' and then 'refresh' and the page I was trying to get usually pops up real fast.
There are some instances when I click on a link, a rectangle IE box pops up with all the toolbars but it too never pulls in anything,just sits there until,again, I hit 'stop' and then 'refresh'.
Somewhere in all this the Microsoft Internet Explorer error box pops up saying IE must close and gives me the choice to send a report or not.But either way IE is forced to close.
Any ideas?
I have run the 'Hijackthis' prog and attached it,just in case you need.Please excuse my typing but as a totally disabled Vietnam Vet,I've so much wrong with my arms that the pain and cramps interferes with my fingers.Of course my arms are not the only problem,thats why I use an electric wheelchair.

My uncle directed me to your site to get some problems handled thru questioning. I am working on a Compaq 2100 and I am running Windows XP as my OS. I cannot however just open a link without having to hit "Stop" (on the toolbar) and "Refresh" to open the page! Any ideas? My uncle told me that is seems as though something is trying to redirect my page somewhere else but I don't think so. It will bring up the new page yet only have the pointer and the hourglass. If I don't hit "Stop" it will just do that forever. Soon as I do the "stop" and "refresh" action, the page will come alive. Please help ya boy out with this one. If I have it tightened up by the time my girl gets home, I'LL BE THE MAN!!! Thanks Guys....Big Stevealeo

Not only does it not open up the link but it also clocks any Iexplore.exe that I have open for the matter of 5 minutes or so. Also I noticed when I go into my task list I start off with 1 iexplore.exe and by the time I am done clicking around I can be up to 5 or 6 of them (though only 1 instance is showing on my screen).

I am running windows XP sp2 with I.E. 6.0 I also had a problem with spyware and ad-ware but I ran scans and now all looks clean even with hijack this.

Any thoughts? Heres a copy of the HJT log because i know it will be asked for.

There are far more qualified people to look at your HJT log but I don't see anything bad either.

Did you try all the standard items that I post?
A) Start with the easiest and see if it works:
IE->Tools->Internet Options->Programs Tab.
Click Reset web settings button.

B) Make sure you disable all popup blockers and see if that is the cause.

C) One or more of the following DLLs might be improperly registered.

1. Quit all programs that are running.
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll and then click OK.
4. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded" message, click OK.

5. Repeat, substituting each of these additional DLLs:
Shell32.dll (Windows XP and Windows 2000 only)

D) If that doesn't work:

I recently did some "tweaking" on my machine and now I can not open links in my web browser (Internet Explorer 6.0). I get a black white page and at the top it says the page is not found. However, If I stop IE from trying to load the page partway through and refresh the page will usually come up (But still says Cannot find server and page cannot be displayed.) I am running Windows 98SE with a cable connection. My guess would be that there is a pop-up blocker somewhere on my maching but I can not find it. Currently I have Ad-aware, Spybot S&D, Norton System Works, WinPatrol, SpywareBlaster, Peper Fix, Kill Box, and Disk Cleaner and Washer. Also my internet as seemed to slow down and I sometimes get errors while trying to run Java (my Internet Options are set to allow Java).

Oh, and when I run HJ This, it pauses near the end at "015 Trusted Zone and enumeration" and sometime HJ This freezes and when "Ctrl + Alt + Delete" it tells me it is not responding.

Sorry this is so long but I tried to be thorough.

First, I am so glad I found you guys because it sounds like people here know what they're doing.

Anyhow, I will be forever grateful if you can help me:

HTML links in web pages open a blank page with a red X in the left corner. Some of them I am able to right click and "save target as" and open from my hard drive but most of them don't offer a "save target as". I tested this on my other computer and they open fine so I believe it to be some setting I have changed but can't figure out which one.

Here's an example:
I am on a website and go to a training module. I click a link and the blank screen opens. When I right click there is no option to Save Target As.

I use XP Pro, IE6 and Avast AV.

Thank you for your help.

When placing a link to another post in this forum, can anyone tell me how to set it up so that when the linked page is opened, it will show the particular post on that page to which the link refers.

For example, I've done a link to post No 374 on Page 38 of the thread found here. The post is half way down the page, but when the link is clicked it opens at the top of the page, not on the post I want to display.

I know it can be done, as it works in a link in a tutorial by Mr. Grim re-directing to one of my posts. This is the link in Mr. Grim's tutorial to post No 317 which opens on the actual post which is half way down the linked page: Windows Mail

Any help would be very appreciated.

I am having the following problems. 1. Firefox has stopped working. When I click on the icon nothing happens.. no hour glass, no action. I read one of your threads and uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. Still not working. 2.

I click on a mailto: hyperlink (someones email address link) either in email or on a web page and it opens up a blank Internet Explorer page instead of a new email page in outlook.

I have vista ultimate 64 and run office outlook 07. I can see outlook has its self checked as default program. I?ve already previously gone into what?s listed below but Microsoft Outlook does not show up in the list to select as a default program?
1. Open Default Programs by clicking the Start button and then clicking Default Programs.
2. Click Set your default programs.
3. Under Programs, click the e‑mail program you'd like to use, and then click Set this program as default.
4. Click OK.

I?ve also tried to associate a default program but that list doesn?t give you a mailto: protocol to associate with.

.... and I've restarted my PC since trying to change and go through everything and outlook has asked me if I'd like it to be my default email program and I've selected yes, still browser email address links open up blank IE instead of new mail page in outlook.... it sh!ts me!

When I click on the 'back to previous page' arrow, on a webpage, nothing happens. I have to click again before it works.

The title says it all. When I open a URL shortcut from the desktop, IE opens it to a blank page. All links opened from within IE and other programs, however, open fine.

I have spent two days searching for a solution everywhere I can locate and tried all of the solutions I found (short of a reinstall of WIN7) and nothing has worked. I have uninstalled IE 10 back to IE8 and reinstalled it twice, but each reinstall of IE8, 9, and 10 have not gotten rid of the problem. I must stay with WIN7 and IE10 for now for various reasons so I need to find a solution.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

I have just changed my laptop which has XP Pro on it whereas my previous one had Win 98. I have installed Front Page 98 on the new one but have 2 problems:

1. It will not allow me to view or import all my previous sites/pages.
2. Even though the Personal Web Server was installed from the CD it gives an error of "There is no personal web server on port 80."

I have tried using other WYSIWYG editors to run with my files but I have not found one that will.

Can anyone suggest how I can fix these 2 issues so that I can continue using Front Page please?

When I try to update my website using Front Page, a box appears saying "This operation requires end-user permission for" ( is my website)and asking for a user name and password. This is normal, except that I think it used to already have the user name typed in there for me.

When I type in the user name and password, the same box just reappears, with the only the password box empty again. This will repeat endlessly. I spoke with my web host provider, and the user name and password I am using are definitely correct. I have tried it using Chrome and Explorer, with the same outcome. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Front Page extensions. Any suggestions?

I have a Sony CRX2100U CD-RW recorder. The following describes my problems since attempting to use the B's gold program shipped with this device for recording images.

I use Front Page 2002, a good program without too many problems until I installed the CD-RW with "B's Gold" software. Since my first recording of jpg images I am unable to open any JPG files with Front Page. All of my other programs will open JPG's so the problems appears to be unique to FP.

I have tried the FP maintenance program with no luck. I have uninstalled and re installed both FP and B's Gold. No help. As backround programs I run Ad Aware and Norton's Systemworks including Anti Virus. Turning these programs on/off makes no difference.

Perhaps B's Gold assigns a code or extension to JPG files that FP does not recognize. If it does, it affects every JPG file in my computer as FP won't open any jpg file. (All other programs handle jpg normally). If so, am guessing this code remains somewhere in my computer as it was unaffected by install/reinstall.

I really need some help as all my web pages use JPG. Would you please advise where I might look

Thanks for your time.


A:Front Page V/S CD-RW = no JPG

WHy would you want to open graphics files with FP in the first place sisnce it isn't a graphics application? Look at your file associations for .jpg and .jpeg files in Windows Explorer...perhaps the new program changed the associations.

I am working on a web page that has photos, etc. on it. I want the viewer to be able to print a page without the photos. I plan on making a Word document or a Front Page document with just the information that needs to be printed with the photos, etc.

I would then like to include a button that will print the document without the photos. I would like it so they would not have to open the second document and print it. If I could, I would like the button to have that command to save that extra time.

Is there anyway to do that? I've typed in lots of combinations of words into the help of front page, but can't find any solutions.

I hope I made this clear enough!

Hi there
... you will always get a double space on enter (why )
To get a single space, hold down the shift key while you press enter. It will follow the formatting of the parent line.

If you want different formatting ... try using tables ... the spacing is tighter (I do e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g in tables, borders set to zero)
I don't know about the page check out issue - have never experienced that ... gurus what is that?

Hi! I am currently working on a website for a college class using FrontPage. I started using the latest edition at the college, but I've been using the 2000 edition at home, which has been working fine. When I try to save a new page, it asks for a network auth. password. It has never asked me for a password before in this location. The website is run through the college's network and you must enter in a login name and password. Once I get past the network password, when I am trying to save the new page, I can't locate the folder that I have been working with. It only brings up Web Folders and has none of my folders that I have been working with as an option. Since I've had this problem I have reinstalled FrontPage 2000, the problem this exists.

I am using Front Page 2000 in Windows XP. When I create an htm file out of a word file and then import it to front page, it always double spaces the text instead of single spacing it. Is there a way to get around this? Even when you try to delete the extra space, it won't let you.

Thanks for the help.


A:Front Page Question

Try this, old dog.

Paste into FP.
Select the entire text you pasted.
Hit Format-Paragraph.

In space before and after, put 0.
If that's too much, undo and try 6.

Word has paragraph spacing, but by default, it's 0 and 0.

FrontPage, as with all HTML, has more space between paragraphs.

If you want Word's stuff to behave when paste, use Shift+Enter instead of Enter when you start a new paragraph. Unfortunately, if you Shift+Enter in Word, you won't get a new bullet and such, so it's no fun really.

Synopsis: Do the dirty workaround or start building in FP.

Experience: I just (about an hour ago) did about 2 pages with stupid bullets and such from Word to FP for a client.

I am trying to use MS's search engine feature on a page I'm building and can't get the feature uploaded to my site. The site is served by Earthlink and I am guessing that it doesn't use Front Page Extensions so I need to upolad the individual files associated with the search engine but there is an .ico file that won't allow me access.

If they don't support Front Page Extensions the search feature in FP will never work on earthlink. I am sure there are plenty of free scripts tht will allow for intrasite searching. I thought Infoseek offered something like this at one time but I am sure it is a pay type service.

A:Front Page 2003

It's not clear what you mean by "details", but in general EW4 will not properly handle web page objects created with the FP Extensions (typically Shared Borders or Navigation Panes.) If your pages have either of these in them you need to remove them and replace them with standard HTML objects. People typically uses DWTs to replace shared borders.

Navigation Panes are more trouble. EW4 has no way of generating these so you might want to look for a 3rd party product that generated navigation bars that you can plug into your pages. You'll get a long list of options if you Google "CSS Menus".

Maybe ten or twelve years ago I decided I wanted to have a website on which I could share pictures, keep a journal of projects, and generally bore everyone but my mother, who was probably just being nice.
Options were limited back then, my knowledge of what was available even more so. I needed something simple to use, and still do.
I bought a copy of Front Page 98 and registered a domain name (Mark and William's Home Place). I've been adding to it ever since, through several isp's, three webhosts, four or five computers, and now I'm on my third operating system.
That's a problem.
For years MS wanted me to get a newer version of FP. I never bothered because I don't even know how to use all the stuff FP 98 has; why add features I'll never use? ("The more functions a program has the harder it is to get it to perform any one of them.") Now it seems like it would be just stalling to get a newer version even if it would work with Win 7.
I know MS has new web programs available, and I don't mind buying software, but I can't find on their shopping pages any of the information I really need.
For instance:
If I've built a site using Front Page extensions will the new program be able to download it onto my computer so that I can continue to edit it? Several times over the years I've suffered computer catastrophes and have had to recover the webstuff from the host; a pain, but possible. I've still got the corpse of the old computer and could conceivably get it to run long... Read more

<< If I've built a site using FrontPage extensions will the new program be able to download it onto my computer so that I can continue to edit it? >>

I doubt it. I don't know about FrontPage 98, but FrontPage 2003 supports extensions and is fully compatible with Windows 7. Developer files can be downloaded from the host server, edited, then republished to the host server.

See if you can get your hands on a used copy of FrontPage 2003 (a big improvement over the 98, 2000 & 2002 versions); it does not require registration.

hiya is there any possible way i can get MS Front Page for free?

A:Front Page free??

none. sorry.

It's not the best sitebuilding program in the world anyway, so you wouldn't be missing much.

I do believe it's possible to download demo's of some office packages, but obviously they expire after a little while. Maybe the same for Frontpage?

yes it is -

Ok, guys.....I've been using FP 2000 for about 3 years now, and I'm pretty comfortable with it, and can honestly say that I know MOST of the "ins and outs" of it. (Honestly can't say it's caused me any problems, but I'm a victim of curiousity! Kind of like "If it ain't broke, I wanna take it apart, and find out WHY"!! )

HOWEVER.......... I know there are alot of people here who absolutely HATE FP. What I would like to know is what happened to make you hate it (be detailed if you would please) and what do you recommend as an alternative in the line of similar (wysywig) programs? I only dabble in coding as I need it, so I would prefer to stick with something that generally functions like FP, without whatever it is that everyone DOESN'T like!

Last, but not least, in recommending alternatives, I would like to know how an existing website can be transferred to use the new program. I have a pretty LARGE website, and the last thing I want to do is start from scratch!

Thanks in advance for any and all advice!

What is the difference between full version and upgrade?

Microsoft FrontPage 2003 Full Version (License Only) Volume License for PC
Full Version, Volume License, Package Type: License Only, For 1 User/ s, Licensing Plan: Open Volume, ...

Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 Upgrade Version for PC
Upgrade Version, Standard License, For 1 User/ s, CD- ROM, MPN: 392- 02323

And what does it mean when it says license only?

A:Front Page 2003

Licence only means that it a another license for an existing set of CD's, to allow another install. It has no CD's or media, just a licence to use a copy of an existing one under Volume Licencing (as used in corporate environments, not home or small business environments)

Upgrade means that you need a "qualifying product" (an older version of Frontpage) before it will install. You need to check what version it requires to install and "upgrade".

I have a website for my fifth grade classroom. the problem I have is that I like to put up lots of images of the kids, and even though I reduce them all to ~30-50k each, they add up, and I wind up going over my 10MB host limit. It's very expensive to add mb's, so my solution idea was to just create a site just for the images, and link it to the classroom site. Obviously since it's linked, it would be "invisible" in the sense that if you click on "Picture Gallery" you'd get sent there, and that would be that.

Here's my question: I have created the alternate site. should I now just create the link from "Picture gallery", and then delete the original "picture gallery" pages from the web site, and then delete all the individual images as well from the folder on the classroom site?

I am terrified of messing up an otherwise perfectly-working site by doing something stupid. any advice, hand-holding, etc, would be appreciated.


A:help with Front Page 2002

you can keep the site as is. but now keep all new pictures on the alternate site and just link example: -<-- so this page contains a link either word or thumbnail. so what you woud do is link this word or thumbnail to the newsite
like or something to that matter. I guess I could of word all this a bit better. so that when they click on that link or that will come up is the picture. from there you have the choice to open in the same window or new window.

I want to use the photo album feature in Front Page. Every time I go to save my work, I get a message that tells me I have to save it a Front Page based web page. I've tried every form of saving I can think of. What are they asking me to do?

A:Front Page 2002

a small guess here:
in FP you can save individual webpages but if you have a photo album with thumbnails etc, you should be saving to a web folder

click file, new, web
set up a new blank web
import or create your html page with the photos, thumbnails etc
save it all in the web

try this site:

there's a lesson on photo albums - may have to follow through all the lessons so the right files are set up in the web

I have a link to a holiday form (the form is a word document and not part of the web). I added text boxes and would like to be able to complete these on the web and then send by email. However, I cannot find a way of doing this. The only way I have found to send it as an attachment is by clicking on the e-mail icon. However, it does not retain the changes this way and the attachment turns up as a blank form. You are given the opportunity to save it straightaway and not open it. Then complete it and send as an attachment. This would be a way around, but not want we want!

I have also created a web form, with a submit button to an email address, but the error message says that the FrontPage extensions do not support this.

A:fonts in front page

The first part I can answer, the second I can not.

Unless someone has the fonts that you specify when they load your page it will load the default fonts listed on their browser.

That is why it is so important to use fonts that are popular and you know everyone will have.

Sorry I can't help you with the other one.

I have been using FPE '97 for many years, but now I have a problem. I am saving an HTML file that looks fine on the screen and pasting it into an HTML template. Once it's on the internet it's spread out...that is, the rows are twice as high as they appeared in FPE. I have tried EVERYTHING to correct it. I selected many rows and changed row height in pixels and percent. Nothing changes it.
