Global radar view not working on Chrome

    Tried to go to the Virtual desktop page this morning and it's reverting back to front page. I get the picture of a Cherokee, drop down tab to Global view and it goes back to the front page.

    However, on Firefox I get front page with Thai A380 and from there it works.

    Windows 10 64 bit Pro both browsers up to date.


    Edit: Now getting Thai A380 but still reverting to the front page.

    Edit: Noticing now on Firefox the map when timing out is not showing the timeout box and is reverting to the front page.

    I'm using a desktop, the clue was Window 10 OS!

    Nope, still reverts back to the Home page after using the dropdown to try and get the map up.

    I've checked that Chrome is up to date, flushed the DNS and tried using it not from a bookmark and it fails every time.

    Both FF and IE are displaying map and aircrafts. Win7 Ultimate.

    The problem is with Chrome. I too get the map with Firefox.

    However when the p[age times out on Firefox it goes back to the Home page, whereas it was displaying a timeout box for you to reset.

    So other problems in addition to Chrome.

    No problems with me, using Chrome on Win 8.1

    A bit of investigating and the house laptop doesn't have these symptoms. That's Windows 10 64 bit but Home edition.

    But the desktop (Windows 10 64 bit Pro) still does.

    The laptop recently had an OS update, but the desktop hasn't had the same one yet, or it may not be scheduled for one, being a slightly different OS.

    However, both revert to the Home page after an idle timeout. Whereas both had a timeout screen come up which when reset went back to the map, rather than having to go to the homepage and start again.

    Has this been changed recently?

    I've copied the data from the working web page on Firefox and imported it into Chrome for the same page, see attached grab. But it still doesn't work, reverting to the Home page every time. Is there something missing here?

    So where have I gone wrong? Even if I start from scratch and search for the web page and try it from there it fails.

    The bookmark I had worked until recently, I've cleared that and still it doesn't work as I can't get to the map any way.

    Per Rob's post, "However, both revert to the Home page after an idle timeout. Whereas both had a timeout screen come up which when reset went back to the map, rather than having to go to the homepage and start again."

    I am having the exact same issue. Started a few weeks ago. I am trying Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Microsoft Edge - all with same result - I feel your pain - no joy!

    Love the site and appreciate the community!

    Hi Steve,

    I was beginning to think I'd imagined it but relieved someone else had seen the same and commented.

    Still can't get the map to work on Chrome, on my desktop, though. Wierd.

    Yes the site is good, but too much "tinkering" going on without warning for my liking.

    Me too - just joined the forum to comment here. Map view won't work on latest version of Chrome at all, cookies cleared, everything reset, makes no difference, all other browsers work.

    Anyone else with the same problem?

    Everything working here ok, Chrome on Win 8.1. What map do you have set? (drop down menu in the top right hand corner of the map pane) - I have the standard open street map (OSM)
    Sometimes it take a while if you are trying to view a wide area, do you see the zoom buttons ( + and - in the top left corner) if so try clicking on the + a few times to zoom into a closer view - less map area to download

    Thanks for your reply Paul. Unfortunately because the map won't load at all it's not possible to select which map to use.

    It turns out the Duckduckgo privacy plugin for Chrome is causing this, I've recreated the problem on a spare laptop. Even if the ADSB site is whitelisted the map won't load, but if the plugin is removed entirely it then works. Until a week or two ago the map was fine even without whitelisting,so I've reported the issue to Duckduckgo as their whitelist function clearly doesn't work for your site.

    This is very odd. I can't even get to the map page. Clicking on Global Radar View/Global Radar takes me back to the front page. This is now happening on my laptop, both on Chrome. Firefox works ok on both.

    Windows 10 on both, one 64 bit Pro the other 64 bit Home.

    Could be a Windows 10/Chrome issue with the site.

    Any ideas?


    Edit: Just seen the reply regards DuckDuck Go, which I use. Thanks for digging Rich.

    Oh well, it looks like you know the cause - it's not my site by the way, I'm just another user :)

    Hi Paul, appreciate your input anyway - an extra pair of eyes on a problem always helps!

    Hi Rob, have you tried whitelisting in DDG? Even whitelist doesn't work for me, but if you select 'open guest window' from Chrome the map works fine. If you find the same on your system it might be worth reporting it to DDG as I have done - strength in numbers etc!

    Hi Rich,

    Sri, I thought I'd replied to your post, but obviously not.

    White listing did the trick for me, and I advised DDG, but have had no response.

    Oddly today, Planefinder has done a similar thing in that personal settings I use for the map don't appear on opening the page from my bookmark. I just get the large map with planes and no data. However the page settings bookmarks then work. I just can't go straight to them.

    On white listing Planefinder on DDG it works perfectly.

    I'm mailing them again.
