I am trying to use a feature of Iheartkroger.com website - I want to use the shopping list and import the ad - This is possible for most of the thousands signed up with this site but some of us get this error message "Javascript and Local Storage are required to make a Shopping List"

I contacted the site owner and this was her response 

"It it likely a local storage conflict...I have had 2 folks let me know that they are not able to create a list at work and it is b/c their settings are such that they don't have local storage. My tech gal said it is similar to cookies but a newer technology.

I wish that I could help but honestly I have no idea how it all works. Basically the info is saved on the user side ...so if you have any programs or network restrictions it may not work on your computer. I think most up to date browsers support local storage. 

Based on the site here: http://dev-test.nemikor.com/web-storage/support-test/
It looks like there are very few (out of date browsers) which do not support local storage. If you are up to date that should not be the issue.

I hope that helps...also, when using the shopping list for the first time...give it a few seconds to build the list. Sometimes it can take a couple of seconds. Mine always seems to be a bit slower right after I have done any system updates on 
my computer."
I updated my Google Chrome, Firefox and IE browsers to latest as well as Java. I googled the error but it is WAY above my head - I don't know a thing about writing code etc.
HELP!

 

Optional Information: 
Language (or Software): Javascript
Browser (if necessary): Chrome

Already Tried: 
updated, googled etc

Not sure there is much you can do about it because as you have already figured out, the problem is on their end. The one thing I will mention is Java and Javascript are not the same thing. A Javascript error is not something you can fix.

Thank you - Since I am only one of a few that can't access this or that is getting this error message it makes me think it is my security software or would my router/modem have anything to do with this - I apologize in advance for my ignorance - I can fix a computer but I am a lost ball in high weeds when it comes to programming or code or whatever this is! :smash:

I suppose you could lower your browser security settings and see if that works.

THANK YOU for your replies!  I am at a total loss as to WHY I am only one of a few people who can't get this feature to work.  I have changed the settings and updated everything I can think of - it happens in IE; Firefox and Google Chrome!!  I guess this is something there is no answer to! :smash:  :killcomp:
