My hipstreet flare opens Google news but when I tap any link it just opens a blank tab

You might try, instead of simply "clicking" a link, hold the link for a couple of seconds... This way, like right-clicking, you can not only choose to simply open the link, open it in a new tab, save it, etc., but you can also see what/where the link points to and decide from there if it's even a viable link! Let us know how it works out for you! Good luck! :-D

I want google back as my home page

Your homepage is the page that normally appears when you first open Safari.
  1. Open Safari if it is not already open.
  2. Choose Safari > Preferences, and then click General.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To use the page in the current Safari window or tab, click "Set to Current Page." if you're currently on
    • To use another page, type its address in the Homepage field. You can type here.
    • To use a blank page, delete the contents of the Homepage field so that the field is blank.
  4. If you also want the homepage to appear whenever you open a new Safari window, choose Homepage from the "New windows open with" pop-up menu.
Good Luck!

I am a complete newbie and have to download a large number of photos and images over a 3 month period.i don't know how to download the pics i want or how to download them to a folder

To start from the beginning, we must say that downloading anything using the internet or surfing the net of course needs a Web-Browser or simply a Browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.).
NOTE: The following instructions are just examples, you may try otherwise also.

If you are using Windows platform as the Operating System(OS), so it must have Internet Explorer(IE) pre-installed. Now double-click on 6_19_2012_3_22_39_am.jpg icon to get started. (if not, you may try installing other browsers, and then follow the instructions below. I presume, you have any kind of browser installed, and if I am wrong, please reply with a comment and I will tell you how to install a browser) :D
** I am using IE 9 here to tell you the process, and you may not find all the options if you use older IE versions like 6,7 or 8 ** IE 10 has all these features stated or depicted here**
The Internet Explorer (or other browser) will open with it's defined settings, either showing it's Homepage or a New Tab page. Now press Ctrl+T to open a New tab and in the address bar type to go to Google.
**The address bar image is given at the bottom of this page.**
On the upper-left corner, click on images to go to Google images. In the Blank Field, type anything you wish, and press enter.
For example, I've entered "Niagara Falls at Night", and this is the result.
You can also refine the result using the links on the left side such as, Large, Medium or Black and White etc.
To download the picture you want, right-click on that picture and select "Open in New Tab". This will open the image in a new tab, where on the right side, click on Full size image to get the maximum resolution of the picture. Now in that newly opened tab, right-click anywhere on that picture and select "Save Picture/image as", which will open a new window asking where to save the picture. Choose any location you want (say, Desktop) and click on Save.


The Address bar looks like the following:

In other ways, you can also grab pictures. According to my opinion, the best way is to go to (don't go to images) and type anything (like, Butterfly pictures) and this will give you several results leading to different websites. Go to any site from the list you like, and save the pictures. (To go to any site, simply click on the link or right-click over it and select 'open in a new tab' to open that page in a new tab)
NOTE: As different browsers use different settings and search engines, the surfing experience and the search results may vary a lot when different browsers are used. And again, the above instructions are for the most basic purposes, and these processes can be done in many other different ways.
Hope this helps, Mrityunjay

Keep getting connecting tab

Open your Internet Option in the control panel and go to the advanced tab and click the RESET tab to reset internet explorer to it's default settings.

If that don't solve the problem try a better browser. Internet Explorer is the worst browser there is.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome.Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they arefaster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to and in the search box type: "Download MozillaFirefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefoxfrom Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on themto go to their site to do the download and install.

Whenever I open up a link I get a click (1x1) message and the link wont open.

Hey guys,
Although you're all noticing similar symptoms, keep in mind that there are a multitude of different root causes that could be going on here. This is illustrated in the fact that different workarounds resolve this issue for some of you, while not working for others. Some of you also mention specific error messages, while others are saying pages simply just don't load. These point to different causes.
In addition, the issues being posted recently on this thread are likely not related to the original post created in late 2008. As a result, I'll be closing this thread. We've created an article that lists some solutions you should try to alleviate issues with Google Chrome not loading webpages at all. Check it out in my references below. Feel free to start a new thread if the suggestions in the article below don't help.
@teen - Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) is an antivirus and firewall program. It has been known to prevent Google Chrome from working properly in some cases. You can resolve this by upgrading to SEP 11 MR4:

I lost my google chrome page,How do i get it back?

If you mean the page that gives you your most visited pages -

1. Click the wrench icon in the upper right and go to Options
2. Under Basics, select "Open the home page"
3. Under Home page, select "Use the New Tab page"
4. Close the Options tab
5. Restart Chrome

This should give you the blank first page with the Most Visited sites listed. If they're not showing, make sure to click on the Most visited line to make the visible. If you don't see that either, look in the lower right for Most visited and click that to restore that line to the browser window.
