Usually I don’t use Google’s Chrome Web browser, even though I have to accept it’s very fast and easy on the eyes, due to its minimalistic design. It’s also on a constant upgrade mode to ensure stability and security to its growing number of users. After Flock Social Web browser was sent out to pasture, I switched to Mozilla Firefox, and that is my current default browser. It makes me feel at ease using it.
Having said that, let me address my recent problem with Chrome. After updating the browser to version 15.0.874.106 last week, I started getting a yellow pop window on top of my screen which read, “An additional plug-in is required to display some elements on this page. (Install plug-in).” No problem, I clicked the corresponding link to install the missing link, but darn, the pesky window kept popping up while opening other sites. This annoying window was driving me crazy and distracted me from my blogging endeavors. I became so desperate, I came to a point of deciding to erase Chrome completely from my system. Then I had this great idea. Go to Google and search for problems with Chrome Plug-ins.
I found a forum which tackled this specific problem. Others just like me were going around in circles trying to get rid of the yellow window and its missing plug-ins. They offered a solution to the problem. It was an interference caused by a feature of Skype called Click to Call.
If you’re having this problem, please follow this quick fix. Click the Wrench icon located on the upper right hand corner of Google Chrome. Then click Tools—Extensions. Proceed to disable Skype Click to Call option by unchecking the Enable box. When you do this, the letters fade to a grayish color indicating that the option is no longer active and your problem is fixed.
Yep, that took care of the problem and my Chrome Web browser is behaving appropriately once more. It’s now on the back burner to be used, just in case something happens to my faithful Firefox. In technology, nobody knows when a Black Swan emerges unexpectedly creating wreak havoc.
And that’s how I fixed my irritating problem in Chrome Web browser. No big deal, but nevertheless interesting. Good Day.
