Microsoft Edge on Server 2019/2016 (and Citrix)

KB ID 0001657 Problem In a fit of lunacy Microsoft have called ‘their’ new browser Microsoft Edge, so we can spend the next few months confusing it with Edge. Plus every Google search for GPO settings, error messages etc will all now show search results for the old Edge Browser not the new Microsoft Edge browser! Perhaps the same doofus at Microsoft who called the Exchange sync Active Sync when Microsoft already had a...

Microsoft Edge (macOS) Migrate Bookmarks from Safari

KB ID 0001641 Problem So now theres a version of Microsoft Edge for macOS! Normally I would not bother, but I spend a lot of time in SharePoint and Azure so I thought, rather than my usual approach of playing ‘Browser Roulette’ I’d try Microsoft Edge and see what it was like. My usual browser of choice is Safari, but the install wizard defaults to wanting to import bookmarks / favourites* from Chrome. (I do also have...

Safari – Download ZIP files (Not Open Them!)

KB ID 0001537 Problem I’d forgotten Safari did this, after replacing my mac a few weeks ago I was trying to download a ZIP file from Github, and was perplexed that it was getting extracted to a folder in my downloads folder, and not appearing as a ZIP file? Solution After about the third time, the penny dropped. Safari does this by default. You need to disable it. Safari > Preferences > General > UNTICK : Open...

Dell iDRAC “The Webpage Cannot Be Found”

KB ID 0001427 Problem I needed to reboot one of my ESX hosts yesterday, so I jumped on the DRAC and got this? An internet search turned up, “The best way to fix this is, firmware update the iDRAC”, which I did. But sadly it didn’t fix the problem. Solution In IE11 they have done a good job of hiding compatibility settings > Options > Compatibility View Settings > Type in the IP/URL > Add > Close >...

Chrome Browser – Show Sites SSL / HTTPS Certificate?

KB ID 0001300  Problem I used to use Chrome all the time back in the dark ages before I saw the light and bought a mac. Since then I’ve persevered with Safari and never felt the need to go back. This afternoon someone in the office asked, ‘How do you see site certificates in Chrome?’ Which I thought was a little odd as it’s easy to do in IE, Firefox, and Safari. So I jumped on a remote machine for a look. Sure...
