Hello there lindabarrett.

Here's a conditional GEEK-steer. But first a few questions:

  1. Have you rebooted your system at least once since you encountered this problem? I have to ask this because, believe it or not, many users will discover a problem and wrangle with it for hours (even days) without ever having rebooted. A simple reboot is one of the most simply successful corrective actions one can take to resolve many a problem.
  2. Do you have interent connectivity AT ALL with your non - web-browser programs (email, Instant Messenger, etc.)?
  3. Have there been ANY system changes/events (software/hardware upgrades, installed new software, recovery from malware infection, etc.) preceeding this trouble with your browser?

Assuming step 1 is exhausted, and especially if the answer is yes to question 3, there is a "quick-n-dirty" solution that will very often resolve most software [as opposed to hardware -- modem, router, cable, etc.) related causes of your trouble: "WinSock XP Fix". I say "quick-n-dirty" because it can often provide much quicker results than methodically, and labor intensivley checking the long list of other areas in search of the problem. It basically resets the critically essential software control points (WinSock, registry, etc.) to a default working status. It can also backup all these current settings prior to executing, so that if it doesn't work, you can always restore back to that backup if desired.

Good luck, and thanks in advance for posting back ...
  • to let me (and others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide feedback to my questions, or if you have any further questions,
  • if you'd like to hear settings backup tips which could prevent this from occuring again.

My phone browser is working but notdownloading what i want to do

  • Install and Use a Different Web Browser: Don't use the built-in "Browser" app to browse the web. Instead, install a browser like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome from Google Play. Chrome only works on Android 4.0 and up, but Mozilla Firefox still works on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. These browsers include their own rendering engines, so they don't use the system's browser engine. They're also frequently updated via Google Play. You'll probably find these browsers faster than the built-in browser if you have an older device with older built-in browser code, anyway!
  • Avoid Browsing With Embedded Web Browsers: Just using a third-party browser won't fix everything, as you'll still be at risk if you use an embedded web browser in an app - these use the system's "WebView," which is vulnerable. Avoid browsing with embedded browsers if you have a vulnerable version of Android. Stick to a dedicated browser app like Firefox or Chrome.

I am unable to play scrabble or candy crush on Facebook since Jan1/14

Those are very popular games, so it's unlikely they're broken. It could be something on your computer - like a plugin component in your web browser.

Try using another web browser. If you use Internet Explorer, try Google Chrome or Firefox. If it works in another web browser, you know it's a problem with your original web browser (and you can go from there).

If it doesn't work in another web browser, try another computer.

If it doesn't work on another computer, see if you can find a friend that plays one of those games and see if it works for them.

Once you've narrowed down exactly what is broken you can try to fix it. For now your problem is still really broad.

Can not login to Facebook

Step 1:

Determine the web browser you are using. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or another third party browser.

Step 2:

Verify that the login credentials for Facebook are accurate. If you do have multiple browsers, attempt to login to Facebook through one of the other browsers just to test credentials and to determine if it's the Web Browser or the Operating System.

Step 3:

*If it works, stop here. Congrats!
*If not... continue.
Each of these browsers have a reset function or the option to clear cache & cookies. Toggle the necessary switches to clear "all the junk" out of them. (Note, Internet Explorer has an issue with HTML occasionally and just clearing the cache isn't enough. Under the Advanced Settings tab, you can reset to factory defaults.)

Step 4:

*Test again... Congrats if it works!
*If not... Continue.
If none of the Web Browsers allow you to log-in, and the credentials are correct, try another computer. If your successful on another machine, it may be time to bring the machine in for computer repair. It's the Operating System... It really depends on your level of expertise. If you're fluent with your operating system (which is primarily Windows), you can run several checks.
*Windows: Try "CHKDSK", or "SFC /SCANNOW". These occasionally repair corruption in the operating system.

Step 5:

Summary:1. If it works on another computer, it's your computers fault.2. If it works on another Web Browser, it's the original Browsers fault.

Browser is not supported by web dynpro


I see your browser is not supported by web dynpro, are you using Internet Explorer? if so then try using Firefox as an alternative and see if there wouldbe any errors or issues using Firefox.

there would be other browsers as well that you can try if ever Firefox encounters an error on web dynpro but most likely it will work.

Just try a different browser and things may works as expected there would be many instances that a program requires a different browser for some reason some manufacturers of programs require a specific browser or a different browser just to have their program work.

I hope this helps.

I can't connect to internet explorer

Try another Web Browser like Firefox or Mozilla to see if you can browse the web. You have to use another pc to download the firefox/mozilla browser and install it on your non-working pc.

If other browser works, then open up Internet Explorer and click on Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset and click OK/Apply. If that does not work, download IE browser again from another pc and install it on the non-working pc.

If other web browser does not work, verify that you can ping outside and get a reply. Click Start/ click Run and type cmd and press enter. Type ping and press enter. You will get a reply if you have internet connection. If you do not get a reply when you ping and other computer connects to the internet, scan your PC for malwares.

I have a mac and I can't load my facebook page at all and my youtube is not able to play video although I can still open the page.

Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

Depending on your web browser, you first should clear the Cache of the select web browser and then reset the browser.

I would also recommend you try this simple procedure I am providing you from forum regarding the inability to launch or load Facebook:
Link: Cannot Load Facebook on my Mac

In regards to video suggest you try, depending on the web browser you have (Safari or Firefox) is to check the Add-ons of that browser, for any updated plug-ins for viewing Youtube videos.

If you are accustomed to using just one browser, experiment with different browsers.

The most commonly used web browsers for Mac OS X are:

* Safari (Built-in web browser from Apple direct)

* Firefox (Developed by Mozilla)

* Camino (Developed by Mozilla)

* Opera (Developed by Opera Software)

For your current web browser, if you want to keep working on the video playback for your Youtube, you should clear the Cache of the web browser and reset your browser.

These are some general practices to resolving the stated issues you are having with launching Facebook and loading YouTube videos.

Let me know if this helps.

Windows 7 web browser does not work

Windows 7 is not a web browser. Internet Explorer is a browser and it should work on Windows 7... provided you have purchased an internet connection and have your computer properly connected. You posted the question and that indicates that you do have a connection and a working browser.

I need to open web browser to past a letter from a web sight

If I understand you correctly, you need to open a letter in a web browser and it is not opening automatically. If this is happening you have one of three problems;
1. You computer does not know how to open this type document. To fix this, right click the document and go to "OPEN" and then choose your web browser program you like ( Opera, Firefox, iExplorer, etc ). You can also click the small check box to allow this document to open these documents with a web browser, EVERYTIME in the future.
2. Your document is not valid to be opened by a web browser. In this case look up the extension of the document on the Internet and find a suitable program to open it. For example: ".doc or .xyz )
3. If you web browser is working and refuses to open it, then it may be a security problem and you will have to change your setting in the browsers, security tab.

Good Luck
