And... now validation works in chrome, too.
I'm curious, if you have a moment for my edification, why did this work? Two things I noticed: 1) previously under i options>advanced>settings, there were more, possibly many more boxes checked than after I clicked restore advanced settings. 2) i options>general>delete, previously ALL boxes were checked, I unchecked temp internet, form data, and activex filtering.
It would be interesting to know which of those checks, or which combo thereof, was the culprit.
Also, why would changing IE internet options allow validation through chrome? I had never even run IE before yesterday. How does a browser that's never been opened or run affect the capability of another browser?
Sorry about the dupe reply, didn't see it was on page 2....
