Topic tags/keywords: question

Anyone using Google Chrome having any issues when clicking onto the enlarged project photos ?
I can neither go forward or backward or close the picture. I have to close the window to get out and start over again from scratch.
Also , all of the “buttons” and “banners” are partially covering the photo.
I know this was an issue recently with certain browsers , but my search didn’t result in any answers to the issues.
Thank you .
PS
I got rid of IE8 and also Firefox due to issues with each of them. Now Google Chrome has its issues, as well.
I don’t want to hear from people that want to say how great their’s works , I’m looking for answers as to why mine doesn’t. Thank you : )

I switched to Chrome. I have noticed that some of the zoomed photos seem to be off centered and cover the “Next” button that normally appears along the rite side of an enlarged photo- this project does it for me

http://lumberjocks.com/projects/50142

I found if I put the mouse cursor on the enlarged photo, just under the end of the brown header bar that indicates the photo # of # (4 of 6), the Next button pops up in the photo. I don’t have any problems with the “Previous” “Next” “Close” buttons it the top most brown header bar.

I am using Chrome version 12.0.742.100 with “Not Scripts” installed. All scripts for all Lumberjocks pages are permitted to run.

I don’t know what would be wrong with yours, but I “upgraded” to IE9 thinking it would be better and it’s turning out to be a piece of crap. It keeps wanting to shut the programs down when clicking on links. Could yours be a resolution issue/ picture size issue on the computer?

I just went back and tried Firefox 4. It displayed the picture, mentioned above, normally. Played with some of the settings in Chrome but no luck so far.

Found this hack but it did not work for me. Maybe you will have more luck-

Lew, I am using G. Chrome and tried it on the project you have mentioned. Every thing is perfectly working. The “Next” button in the fourth picture comes a little to the right of the center of the picture. I switched to Chrome because I was not happy with the I. Explorer.

Have you tried turning on your hardware acceleration in Chrome?

Works fine in chrome for me, but typically issues like that arrive from either not having the proper plugins (is your java and flash up to date?), or by having additional add ons that are interfering with the program.
Considering you had issues with IE and FF, my guess is you are having issues across the board, and not with Chrome specifically.

Additionally, it’s a VERY BAD IDEA to try and get rid of IE. IE and Windows Explorer tend to overlap programwise in certain areas, which means getting rid of one often makes the other unstable in some way.

Use system restore if necessary, and then install Chrome fresh.

(additionally, you might be infected, but even so, a restore point far enough back might help, if it isn’t corrupted too)

ry updating your flash plug in and also if you have acrobat reader do the update for that. Looks to be that the version of flash player you have is older. I just tried using chrome and could not reproduce the issue you are having.
Also if you haven’t done all the updates in Windows you may have problems going up in versions of browsers etc.

What windows version are you using? If you are running Windows 7 or Vista they have done some major updates in the past few weeks.

Try loading FireFox and IE back on your machine chrome has big problems and messes. Do Not try to uninstall chrome it will not uninstall without messing you up. mrg said update your flash and he is right but the issue culd be here alone do you have problems on all internet sites?

I use FireFox 4.0.1 and have the Adblock Plus addon installed to control banners, etc. It works for me.

Hi sandhill , this IS the only site that creates issues , and seeing that it is my favorite site , I would like it to work properly , that is why I keep trying new browsers as suggested by others here.
Everything is up to date
with the exception of Firefox telling me that it can’t update securely. Other than that , it works fine , there are just some things about it that I don’t care for.

Randy , I also tried the Adblock Plus on FF.

mrg,Windows XP , SP3…..this aught to get the Mac ball rolling : ) LOL

Lew, I will try your links next.
thanks everyone : )

Anyone with Google Chrome and the LJ toolbar out there ?
IE and FF both have the option to add the streaming audio player to the toolbar. I don’t find this option available with the G-Chrome version. Yes , there are a million apps , but I can’t find the original player.
