Fidelity requiring Chrome for Full View

Post by radiowave »

I am getting an error box from Fidelity when using MS Edge that I cannot not get into Full View and suggests I download Chrome browser. Has anyone encountered this? Everything has been working fine with Edge until recently.

Fidelity is also requiring you to tun off cross site tracking on safari on iOS not too thrilled about that. Not sure if that’s related or not.

Well, that's probably because parts of the site frame in third-party sites, like Vanguard does with the bond/CD screen.

Edge works on my computer.

Edge is chromium based.

Thus far I haven't encountered Edge-specific issues with Fidelity, but in general it does give more compatibility issues than Chrome.

I got Full View to work today.

I'm using Safari on my MacBookPro....I had to turn off "prevent cross-site tracking".

Everything worked OK after that.

On my Mac computer Full View will not work using Safari as the web browser. Firefox accesses Full View without problems.

As @bondsr4me suggested, the problem with Safari is probably due to the prevent cross-site tracking setting.

I need to make Full View work on my Mac Air. Would you be willing to share the steps to make it work in Safari?
