    chrome fails

    I love google chrome. It is a LOT faster than firefox on my machine

    but...

    I have recently noticed that some webpages have serious problems with chrome. Whereas firefox works just as it should.

    eg. this page:
    https://easiointi.kela.fi/go_app/

    Chrome says that "we are maintainng the page, sorry for inconvenience" (in finnish)

    but the page works in firefox, and it transfers you to the secure identification page which is what is supposed to happen.

    Similar thing happens in some other sites too. strange.


    Have anyone else had similar problems with chrome?

    URL took me to a security page were authentication is required. I was using Chromium though.
    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.

    Interesting!

    So the problem is my chrome setup then. Good to know.

    Have to check what the problem is. Eg. what have I disabled in chrome, that I havn't in firefox. Hmmmm...

    confusing, that the "error message" doesn't tell me to eg. enable java or something. Just that they are maintaining the site...


    Thanks for the info.

    Chrome also crashes on this game which is very nice when played in Firefox.

    @OP, I have no problem accessing your link from Chrome.

    Sorry, I don't use Windows.

    It might have something to do with the Nvidia card, but it works well in Firefox with both the proprietary driver and nouveau in full screen and high res(in fact can't tell the difference) but in Chrome it doesn't work with either (it works well for a while then crashes or loses audio later, with nouveau can't get to fullscreen)

    Works for me on Google Chrome. Finnish? and offers to translate, but see nothing like you say about maintenance.

    The game also works, but I cant escape it.

    Re: chrome fails

    chrome is painfully slow for me while firefox is faster. don't understand why
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
