I’ve lived in the Randle area for the past 20 years, moving here from Kent in 1999 to get out of the city life and never looked back. I have three children, my oldest daughter lives in Seattle and the younger daughter and son live in Randle. I’m blessed with three beautiful grandkids.

Microsoft Edge is Blocking my Website
Last week we talked about how to set your home page in the new Microsoft Edge and Chrome. Related to this, I had a call awhile back where Edge was blocking a client’s homepage from loading. When the web address was typed in, it said that the site was unsafe and would not open. This was a known web site that that had been used for a long time and suddenly it was deemed unsafe and wouldn’t open.
I spent quite a bit of time going through all of Edge’s settings trying to convince it that the site was safe. I turned off most of the built-in security settings and still it wouldn’t open. The problem it seems is that the sight was an HTPP:// web site, and not an HTPPS:// web site, with the added “S” indicating that it was a secure site.
I read some forums and many others had the same issue. What finally worked for me was surprisingly simple. While adding the page in the “On startup” section of the Settings, instead of typing in homepageinquestion.net, I typed in www.homepageinquestion.net. This satisfied Microsoft Edge and allowed the page to open. In the address bar it still tells me that the page is not secure, but it allowed it to open.
I mentioned a few weeks ago that the new Edge and Chrome are now quite similar in their coding and appearance.
While trying to work out this issue I was, however, able to open the web site in question on Chrome, with no errors.
Have a good week,Kathie Pearce
