HTML Report: Problem with display in current browsers


In the current browsers such as Edge (e.g. version 87.0.664.66, 64-bit) or Chrome (e.g. version 86.0.4240.198, 64-bit), the result of an HTML report is not displayed, the index page is frozen. In older browsers such as IE, the HTML pages are displayed as usual and without any problems.


The solution descriptions assume that the specified browser is the standard browser defined in the system!

The problem is known to the manufacturer SparxSystems and is also documented accordingly in the EA User Guide (section “Browser behavior”).

Google Chrome

Note: The instance of the browser started in the following steps should only be used to open the HTML pages generated from the HTML report and should then be closed again immediately.

  1. Close all running instances of the browser.
  2. Start a new instance of the browser (e.g. using WIN-Key+R ) with chrome --allow-file-access-from-files.
  3. Open the start page of the generated HTML report.

Microsoft Edge

As with Chrome, but with a full path and an additional option:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe" --allow-file-access-from-files --profile-directory=Default


As with Chrome, but use opera instead of chrome:

opera --allow-file-access-from-files

Mozilla Firefox

Open the Firefox configuration page (about:config) and set the value of the privacy.file_unique_origin setting to false.
