Technical Questions

A: We suggest Mozilla Firefox. Newer versions of Firefox have an auto-update feature that will help keep you up to date. We also suggest Google Chrome. A personal favorite, Google Chrome is fast and agile. Chrome, like Firefox, also has an auto-update feature.

Other browsers:
Apple Safari. A good browser that is quick and well supported. Internet Explorer. Although we support IE8, we strongly suggest you use another browser to view our site.

A: Each browser is slightly different. Some browsers auto update and some are more complex. We suggest you visit your preferred vendor’s website and download the latest version if you are unsure of what is available or how to update your browser.

A: It’s possible they have been turned off by you or someone else who uses your device. In that case it is usually a simple matter to turn them back on. It’s also possible some other programs or browser plug-ins like anti virus or ad blockers, may limit the functionality of your cookies.
