I have been using Firefox for years, but for about two years now it started failing on a few web pages. The number increased slowly, either a complete failure to display anything, or some elements on the page not completing loading, or completing but not displaying.
So what do I do? I've kept IE as a last resort. It cannot remember a single case where it had to give up on all those pages where FF fails.
No, I will not switch to Chrome. I want FF to handle all those web pages I visit regularly. So I stick to IE as an emergency solution. It works.
Imagine if you will, a dark lit night in a place far far away.
Suddenly you round a corner and the neon lights of a district where passion is served blind you..
A young lady approaches and utters the words that will stick in your mind forever..."Me love you long time GI"
and suddenly you've entered the twilight zone.

my experience with edge is it loves to make itself the default PDF viewer even when told not to.
helped a few people change to some other PDF viewer because edge can't open or print or other things. OK, install another, sumatra (lite), even Adobe (a user with very complicated govt PDF's) etc,
and yes of course I set the default to the new viewer. Test it, open files, email attachments..
couple of days to week or two later, "can you help me again, I can't open this PDF."
guess what the default PDF viewer is. (and sometimes it even claims the PDF is corrupt)?
I am supporting legacy VB6 programs. I am trying to push the VB6 development IDE up to Windows10 OS, for security reasons. I have managed to register and get working all of the different 3rd party OCX controls that my programs use, except for the ComponentOne VSFlexGrid, which I use extensively in my desktop program.
I have gotten it registered, but when I attempt to run it asks for a license code (which I already have on my XP machine, having bought the product once). They want me to purchase an entire new suite of OCX controls (at a cost of $1200.00 to $1500.00).
So I am looking for a reasonably priced Data Grid OCX control. Any Recommendations?
Yes, I know I should have done this a long time ago, Mea Culpa, etc.
That's why I am Slow Eddie...
I also support Vb6 on Windows 10 and also use some of the old ComponentOne and TrueGrid (v.6x) components. I remember having this issue on my laptop, but can't remember how I got it resolved. I think I had to uninstall and reinstall the components.
There is one important thing, you must install the components using their installer...simply registering the ocx's/dll's will not work.
If it comes down to it, and you have to replace the grid component with something different, I'd seriously ask myself if it's not time to just bite the bullet and upgrade the project to .NET.
1. download vsflex8.ocx
2. Copy vsflex8.ocx to the SysWow64 folder.
3. Register this ocx that we just copied for it we do the following:
a) We create a file with extinction .bat (registerOCX.bat) within this file we record regsvr32 C: \ Windows \ SysWOW64 \ vsflex8.ocx (ocx path). And then we recorded.
b) Right click on the file and then click on run as administrator and you will receive a registration message.
4. Additionally I copy the dll’s and ocx to the SysWow64 folder, but it is no longer necessary to register:
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
