While surfing the web, people come across the frustrating Internet Explorer not responding error message; the same goes if IE cannot display a web page popups. These two are the most commonly encountered errors in the default browser of Windows. Some of the troubleshooting steps mentioned below are more or less the same as for Internet Explorer not responding issues, which is especially the case with disabling the browser add-ons.
This works if the web page failing to load fully has to do with the add-ons installed in IE browser. To detect that and disable add-ons, follow the below steps.
If that fails to resolve the “web page cannot be displayed” error, see to it if your internet connection is working fine.
Check the modem, wireless, router, and other settings to ensure that they are working. If such settings are ok, double-check the PC’s IP address following the below steps.
If that is not the starting letters of IP address shown, see to it if the browser is configured to Work Offline mode.
In case you come across Internet Explorer cannot display the web page error in future, get in touch with browser tech support for a timely response.
Users of Google Chrome often encounter an error message saying, “Waiting for Proxy”, especially while trying to open a website. Much like Chrome constantly crashing, even taking too much time for a web page to load up fully can cause much annoyance to those surfing the web. However, there are several steps to resolve the error on Chrome. Prior to proceeding with the below steps for that, ensure that the website or web page you are trying to open is not appearing fully only in Chrome.
If the website or page loads fully in other browsers, launch the Chrome tab in Incognito mode by pressing and holding down Ctrl, Shift, and N keys. If the website returns with 404 Not Found error message on incognito window, you will have to clear browsing data of Google Chrome. For that, press and hold down Ctrl, Shift, and Delete keys on an active Chrome tab, and choose Clear Data from the window that pops up. Note that this step might also fix Chrome constantly crashing issues.
It is also seen that “Waiting for Proxy” error occurs because of IP preference change from IPv4 to the other configuration. In case your system has configured IPv6 address, it will first try that, even though if it is assigned automatically without a proper gateway. Once this particular connection gets timed out, the system will try to establish the connection with IPv4 instead, and the web page will load without any glitches. So if clearing the browsing data fails to resolve the “Waiting for Proxy” error on Chrome, follow the below steps to fix it.
This should fix the “Waiting for Proxy” error on Chrome. However, if you are still facing the issue, or need help with Chrome constantly crashing problem, get in touch with a browser support technician for advanced troubleshooting.
