Windows 10 Edge browser throwing fits over HP ads

    Or so it would appear. Only HP can decide.

    Ever since I started using Windows 10 Edge, I keep getting the following sporadic message, "Only secure content is displayed". This only happens to me on HubPages and mostly occurs in the forums. The intermittent nature of the message makes me think it is being caused by one particular ad network; needless to say, I have no idea which one. Blocked ads equals missed revenue and all that; and as Windows 10 Edge becomes more and more prevalent...

    Anywho, just thought I'd mention the possible issue. smile

      Is the message like a pop-up or new window tab? Just curious. I do not have Windows 10 yet. Still pondering. But, here at HP now and then I get a a new window tab appear like a pop-up of some sort. However, when I click on the window tab it is a McAfee warning asking if I want to go there. For instance that occurred when I clicked to visit this forum post. BTW it seems mostly to occur within the forums.

        With Windows 10, it's a small pop-up at the bottom of the screen. And like McAfee, it gives me the option to display whatever that insecure content is.

        Sounds to me like the exact, same issue; with Windows 10 Edge and McAfee each responding to it in their own, different ways.

      I have upgraded to Windows 10 and have used Edge a time or two but didn't care for it. I changed my settings to make Chrome my default browser again and I've seen no error messages like you described.

      I've done some testing of the site using Windows 10 on two different computers and have not encountered the issue you are describing.

      Please let us know if you can identify any specific problematic ads.
      Here is the info for which we are looking.
      http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/119283

      You do have the option to use Firefox or Chrome.
      Firefox just updated the browser so it matches Windows 10 better as well.

        Yep, it's intermittent.

        I suggest you use Windows 10 Edge in your normal course of forum visits for awhile. Eventually the message will show up. smile

        Thanks. Now that I know HubPages is aware of whatever it is, my work is done here. big_smile

        I hope wicked times do not lie ahead. Some days I'm optimistic; some days I'm pessimistic.

        HubPages contributes to society.

        It is not right there is a gatekeeper.

    Well, after I started this thread yesterday, the messages stopped. However, so far this morning, they've shown up three separate times again, 6:27 am HP time.

    Make that four times. Last one was this thread at 6:29 am HPT.

  4. paradigm search profile image80
    paradigm searchposted 17 months ago

    Again at 6:31.

  5. paradigm search profile image80

    Zero incidents today, as of around 10:00 am HPT.

    Fess up, it was real.

    Otherwise I'm going to stop volunteering information to you.

    And the message just showed up on a hub.

    I can't decide whether to play with you or no; hammer into ground or not. There is a problem or not. I can help; you know you are not making it.

    Odd message, that. It stands.

  8. paradigm search profile image80
    paradigm searchposted 17 months ago

    "play" was not accurate.

    Critter just displayed on a hub. Problem apparently still not solved. Forums have been message-free though. ~9:47 am HPT.

    The original thread from awhile ago has seemed to have disappeared. If true, shame on you HP; it really wasn't that bad. So posting it here...
