I work voluntarily on a few forums.
I also have posted this request on several forums without successful replies.
Since using Chrome (my default browser Windows 7) when I get an email notification that someone has replied to a post and click on the site included in the email to access the OP's reply, all I get is a page opening in Chrome with 'untitled' as the heading.
My way around this is to right click on the link in the email | copy shortcut | open Chrome | paste | and the site loads. Can anyone guide me to a fix for this annoying issue as I really like Chrome and do not want to change browsers.
If I have Chrome open and click on the OP's link in the email the link will load.
My older laptop using XP and Chrome opens the links in the emails whether I have Chrome open or not!
This issue is not serious enough to create a new profile so I have not done that.
Things I have done to try and solve this are as follows:
Tried my alternative browser IE9 which opens the links immediately.
Avast is up to date, a suggestion from another OP
Uninstalled and re-installed Chrome through Programes and Features and Revo uninstaller, making no difference
Set Chrome and Windows Live mail as my default programs in settings Windows 7
I have been told that Programs Files is where 64-bit programs are installed and Program Files (x86) is for 32-bit programs. So the only way to get Chrome to install in Program Files is to install a 64-bit version of Chrome - if there is one. There does not seem to be one sadly.
Perhaps one of the experts here can update me on a fix for this irritating issue.
There is a link here
to manually uninstall Chrome which was suggested but I do not want to change the registry although my registry is backed up but I don't think that is the issue.
