    Chrome startup malfunction?

    I have a specific web page that I use as a home page. It starts out from the site/page http://www.3x3links.com/index.html.

    The page can then be configured, and, once set, the url becomes http://www.3x3links.com/?set=0, which I then set as my homepage.

    Now, in both Firefox and Internet Explorer this works fine. In Chrome however, the configured page shows up but then changes near-instantly to the non-configured url.

    The configured page requires a GMail login, which is no problem either. It seems that Chrome rejects the login info and requires logging in again.

    I have tried both leaving Chrome running in the background and not so, getting the same result.

    I just do not know what to set or change to get Chrome to open to the reight page.

    Chuck,

    In Chrome the Home Page and the Startup Page are different animals!

    Here's the help page explaining the how to cope with them.

    My guess is that you have one configured but not the other. From your description I would guess the Startup Page.

    RG, no, I didn't know there were two pages. I set both, so now I get the same page for both means of access. Now the only issue is that I cannot get Chrome to remember my login info, so I have to go to "Sign in" each time. I have the "Stay signed in" checked, but that doesn't fix it.

    Chrome is saving the info, so when I click to sign in, it auto-fills the email and password, but it is requiring me to do that and not just automatically logging in.

    Ideas?

    Mine does the same thing; many of my pages are automatically logged in, and a few are not. I'll be listening in and learning alongside with the thread starter.

    Chuck,

    Under Advanced Settings -> Privacy -Content settings...

    any chance you have the highlighted option set?

    If so chrome is probably loading the Cached version of the page (the way you last viewed it) then when it can't find cookies for your settings reloading the base page. Of course, this is just a WAG!

    Roland, I asked a form of this on the Google dB some type back as I recall, but now answer there either. We shall see!

    RG, no, I have the first choice set just as you show. I didn't though, have the "Block third party..." Checked -- but do now.

    I'm not sure you want to Block Third Party cookies checked, even some safe sites similar to Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity or Captain Kangaroo/Bob Keeshan-quality sites will not work well.

    Roland,

    Personally, I'd avoid any site that did not operate correctly with Third-Party Cookies disabled. Third party cookies are those that can be tracked across your browsing activity, e.g. from site to site. In other words spying cookies used to serve up ads and invade your privacy.

    RetiredGeek, you're correct about surfing web sites with 3rd party cookies; I shall maintain my normal vigilance
