Hints and Findmypast

Post by Lorry45 » 25 Nov 2021 11:37

When using the hints in Family Historian I get a message from FMP saying " I am using an unsupported browser, FMP recommend I switch to an up to date browser". I am using Firefox which is up to date & have had no problem with for years.
FMP say it is not their problem & suggest I change the default browser in Family Historian settings-is this possible?

The internal browser in FH6 is Internet Explorer, which FMP no longer support.

Your options are:

1. to set FH to use an external browser (such as Firefox). Tools > Preferences > Internet Data Matches> Location to Display Matches

2. Upgrade to FH7 which uses Edge for the internal browser.
