Intermittently, I'm getting errors in Chrome like this:
Right now, I'm even getting it for the imgur site where the screenshot is saved.
Edit: It just happened again on StackOverflow.com. I was answering a question, and posted a screenshot. I then edited my answer, removed the screenshot and posted another screenshot. I could see the first screenshot just fine, but for the new screenshot I get the broken link and now I cannot get to the imgur site at all. edit end
When I open a different Chrome profile, I can get to these sites without a problem, so it's NOT an issue with the computer or network. My computer can see the sites just fine in a different session or in another browser. The problem is somewhere in the current Chrome profile and I need to fix it.
What does NOT work
- all the steps typically listed for network fixes, DNS reset, TCP/IP reset, LAN settings, VPN settings, proxy settings etc. Again, the computer can see the site, just the one Chrome session can't.
- clearing all cookies for the site
- clearing the cache
- disable all Chrome extensions and restart Chrome
What works (but I can't do that every time the problem comes up)
- restarting the computer
- creating a new Chrome profile, syncing all settings from the cloud
I get the problem between three times a day and three times a week. It's not life threatening but very annoying. I run (and would like to keep running) these extensions:
- Send to OneNote
Does anyone have any idea what the cause could be and how to fix it? I've asked similar questions before, but no answers.
