    I use IG HOME for my home page in Chrome. Usually works great. Now, it won't display gadgets from a couple places, like Accuweather or Weather Underground. I get the frame/box and nothing in it. Any ideas?

    The Accuweather uses Adobe Flash Player:

    So it's possible you need to update your Adobe Flash Player, though since you are on Chrome, that should be updated already..... Try clicking on the info button on top left, next to the web address and then click on Site Settings. Find Flash and choose to Allow.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi, I do not see any such info button anywhere.....regardless, I downloaded and installed latest version of Flash. Accuweather shows up, but others will not.....in the "add gadgets" search, they turn up blank.....weird......this is a pretty new Windows 10 Dell laptop.....

    To be clear.....I see the gadget title, with the basic frame/structure, but no info or images appear inside..... it's blank.

    No one could help me with this, even my local "guru," so I'm going to close the thread....it remains a mystery.

    Sorry, I must have read this without reading it (was not showing unread)
    If you right click in that area, does it show anything like Java, FlashPlayer etc?

    Flash is updated by Chrome, no download needed.

    as to the icon I meant this:
    upload_2018-7-2_13-57-43.png

    Click on that when you are on that site, then Site Settings on the bottom of the list.

    Hi, thanks again. I tried that, and it said "blocked," so I changed it to "allow," but it changed nothing. The gadgets still show up blank. Wow......

    Did you refresh the page? Did you right click on the area that it should be to see what plug in is there?

    Oh, you have something like AdwareBlocker?

    Last thing, try the website in Incognito Mode (Press and Hold CTRL+SHIFT, then press N) and see if you get the same result

    Nothing doing. Nothing works. Now even when I go to search for gadgets, they show up blank. Again, pretty new l laptop running Windows 10......I'm baffled. LIterally no one has a clue what to do......this is beyond strange. I'm going to look for a different home page.....igHome obviously will not work for me any more. For the record: under "settings" I made sure everything is "allow." Nothing is blocked. So weird.....
