Internet Explorer (IE): Click Tools > Internet Options. Click the Security tab. Click Custom Level. Scroll down to Scripting > Active Scripting and select Enable. Click OK. Click the Privacy tab, and select at least Medium (which is the default; if you otherwise customize your settings for cookies, you must allow first-party cookies). Be sure that the Block Pop-ups box is checked. Click Settings. In the Pop-up Blocker Settings dialog box, type https://apps.leaderservices.com/_wamr in the text field provided. Click Add. Click Close. Click OK. Cache: Click Tools > Internet Options. On the General tab, click Settings under Browsing History. Select the Every time I visit the page radio button. Click OK twice.
Google Toolbar and Internet Explorer: If you are using Google Toolbar, you must disable its popup blocker for this site.
To disable Popup Blocker using Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer, visit the WAMR web site and click the Popup Blocker button on the Google Toolbar. This will disable popups only for the desired web site and will remember the setting for this web site during future visits, allowing popups to display.
To completely disable the Popup Blocker using Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer: Click the Settings button on the Google Toolbar and select Options. Click the More tab. Uncheck the box next to Enable Popup Blocker. Click Apply. Click OK.
For previous versions of Google Toolbar without a Settings button: Click Options on Google Toolbar and uncheck the box next to Popup Blocker.
Cache: Firefox checks for the newest version of every page visited in WAMR; if you believe that Firefox is opening stale pages in WAMR, you should empty the cache. Click Tools > Options. Click the Privacy icon. Click the Clear Now... button (in the Private Data section). Make sure the Cache box is checked and click Clear Private Data Now.
Cache: Safari checks for the newest version of every page visited in WAMR. There are no settings to configure for its caching process. If you believe that Safari is opening stale pages in WAMR, you should empty the cache: Click Safari > Empty Cache. Confirm the action by clicking the Empty button in the dialog box.
Firefox's Built in PDF Viewer
For those of you who use Firefox, you may have noticed that it uses its own built-in PDF viewer by default, instead of the Acrobat plugin used previously. This new viewer has caused some problems for our users when viewing and printing files generated by WAMR.
To switch back to the Acrobat plug-in, follow these steps from within Firefox:
- Click Tools > Options (on a Mac, click Firefox > Preferences).
- In the Options dialog box, click the "Applications" icon.
- Scroll down to "Portable Document Format."
- Click where it says "Preview with Firefox" and select "Use Adobe Reader (in Firefox)."
- Click OK.
