Links won't open on clik in google chrome

I have to copy and paste the links people are sending me on yahoo messenger in order to reach them. If i click on them, they won't open, not even the buttons fot my email and others. If they have a youtube link on their status, i am not able to see it because i can not copy it and if i click on it, it is useless..i tried to uninstall the messenger but still doesn;t work. Can anyone help, please?

    very same problem ... can't open any internet links from yahoo messenger... not even the email, or a status, or any link ... except i copy paste them with mozila, or - perhaps setting mozilla or IE the default browser might do the thing ... i just like Google Chrome better :)

    After clicking on link from windows sidebar, the chrome status box appears on the desktop but the main windows doesn't.


    In the running processes chrome is listed but it isn't visible.

    Yep. Same issue. When I click the link in WIndows Live Messenger, Status filed of Google Chrome appears, and Chrome is listed in running processes in Task Manager, but htere's no window, it's not visible.


    I hope they'll fix this issue soon...

    Uninstalling Google Chrome has ruined my yahoo messenger. i cannot find a solution. I can't stand Google Chrome. The only way to fix my yahoo messenger is to reinstall G-Chrome -- I don't want it. It's too aggressive and made itself the default window/browser when i would click on icons such as the "mail" envelope in Y-messenger. I hate Google Chrome -- The Browser stinks -- I hate microsoft too, but it's a 1000x better than G-Chrome. Any ideas? Google will not respond to the problem and i have not found any posted solutions. I am using Vista 64 Bit

    I am having the same problem, because I didn't like Chroms, so I uninstalled it and now links don't work on my Windows Live messenger



    I also noticed that Chrome had made its way into default browser for EVERYTHING on my computer, including replacing existing icons, and I wasn't promted to allow it.. so I'm having a lot of other problems.

  • Anonymous Apr 19, 2009

    Im still using chrome, and any links outside of chrome, if the brower is closed, open chrome with a blue screen saying Aw Snap! and only open if i have chrome already up or if i copy and paste the link.

  • Anonymous May 05, 2009

    I installed Google Chrome to try it out. However, I decided I didn't really enjoy it, so now that I've uninstalled it, my Windows sidebar (Sky News gadget) links can't open the Internet, with error message "Application not found".

First make sure that Google Chrome is set as your default web browser. if this doesn't solve anything the problem is from ym not from the browser. To fix this (it worked for me) open y messenger and log in, go to preferences-->General-->uncheck the box near "Open web links in a new browser window"--> hit OK. Hope this will help!!!

I had the same problem (Windows XP).
I solved it this way:
Yahoo Messenger -> Messenger-> Preferences-> General uncheck the check box "Open web links in a new browser window"
And in Google Chrome, clicking on the spanner in the right corner (Customize and control) -> Options -> Click on the big button "Make Google Chrome my default browser"

It works like a charm!!

I've never used Google Chrome but believe if you uninstall Yahoo Messenger. Then re-download and reinstall it(Yahoo Messenger) that it should remedy your problem since Google Chrome is now removed.

Cannot open attachments in Yahoo email


My best answer based on the information given is that it could be a compatibility issue with google chrome and yahoo email. Im not sure if google chrome was tested with yahoo email yet by the yahoo staff. Try opening the attachment in another browser such as firefox or internet explorer. If you can open attachments with either those browsers, then its possible that google chrome isnt fully supported yet. Youll still be able to read and send email with google chrome but you may have to you one of the two browsers that i mentioned in order to get attachments.
