        I run Apache server on my PC (a leftover from when I was creating websites). It means I have my own home page rather than using someone else’s. It works fine in Firefox (my browser of choice). However, when I open Edge, Version 83.0.478.61 (Official build) (64-bit), it just sits there doing nothing (other than the spinning circle). If I then stop the load (click the x at top left) then refresh the page pops straight up. I’ve had a look but can’t find any setting that might affect this. Any ideas?

        Does it work OK with any Chromium-based browser?

        I only have three browsers, Firefox (no problem), Chrome (iffy) and Edge (iffy). Both Chrome and Edge sometimes work and sometimes don’t. I had a problem yesterdy with some of mt other computers, where nothing worked. Phoned a friend (well emailed him) and he wondered if it was a firewall issue. Turned out it was making the network private fixed it and they worked yesterday, but now they don’t, even FF. Only FF on this PC (the Apache server) is working consistently…..

        I’m sure I read somewhere that Chrome and Chredge don’t co-exist well on the same system..
        Hang on, I’ll have a search..
        EDIT: yeah, it was to do with having symantec endpoint on the system that caused that issue:

        false+ to your issue


        No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created Pebcak
