Maps on Chromebook not working

by AndyAmphlett » Wed Apr 04, 2018 2:18 pm

Tom,

Maps via the maps tab are not working on my Chromebook. When I start to enter a taxon name, the list of taxa to select from does not appear. It is running Version 64.0.3282.190 of the Chrome browser, which is the most up to date version available for that machine. Maps are working fine on my pc which has a more up to date version of the browser - Version 65.0.3325.181

Is this a browser version issue?

Thanks,

Andy.

Hi Andy,
I can see the error in the log files, but it's not obvious what is causing the fault (which is that the dictionary of taxon names is failing to load).

This is something that I've seen sporadically across a wide range of browsers and have never been able to pin-down.

Please could you try forcing a reload of the page (ctrl-R) which might possible resolve the problem.

In general I would expect chromebook Chrome to behave very similarly to PC Chrome so this is quite strange.

Tried that. No joy.
