    Hi.

    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.

    Rob

    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.
