Recently the NPAPI was disabled in Chrome. With this, the Java applet responsible for download/upload operations via WEBGUI could no longer work.

The alternative was presented here.

With the corrections made, the default behavior in each web browser is:

Internet Explorer:

IE11.jpg

Firefox:

FF.jpg

Safari:

SF.jpg

Chrome:

Chrome.jpg

But what if I would like to have the same behavior across all web browsers? I mean, I would like to have the WEBGUI File Browser available in all supported web browsers.

This is possible! Just adding parameter ~webgui_updown_noapplet_mode with value 28 in the GUI Configuration will turn on the new interface.

New behavior, after adding the parameter:

Internet Explorer:

IE11v2.jpg

Firefox:

FFv2.jpg

Safari:

SFv2.jpg

In Chrome there is no change, as the WEBGUI File Browser is the only possible behavior.

    Hi Cristiano,

    The “GUI Actions and Settings” button does not appear in my webgui.

    Could you please tell me what is the cause?

    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards,

      Hi Martina,

      You are still using the old template-based WEBGUI. In order to have the new rendering, you need to upgrade the kernel to version 7.21 (or 7.22), then set in the GUI Configuration:

      ~webgui_new_design 1

      By then you should be able to see the “GUI Actions and Settings” button.

      Kind regards,

      Cris

    Hello Cristiano,

    Is it normal that in IE11 the icons for “Show/Increase disc space” are not active?

    For Firefox the icons are also not active. Only in Chrome they are active.IconsWebGUI.png

    Thank you,

    Florin
