Only one web window or tab is supported. If a web page tries to open a page in a new window or tab, it replaces the existing page.

Troubleshooting

If you encounter a problem with a web page, you can turn on RemoteDebugging from the web portal of the device. Select Settings from the menu on the left and then, select Configurations from the top of the middle pane. Then, choose the following:

  • WebEngine > RemoteDebugging: RemoteDebugging allows you to run the Chrome developer console on your laptop. Make sure to turn off RemoteDebugging after use. RemoteDebugging lets you access the Chrome developer console and identify potential issues with a web page. When enabled, a banner is displayed at the bottom of the screen, warning the users that they may be monitored. The banner also shows the URL that you can enter in your local Chrome browser to open the developer console.

  • If a web page is not supported, the device goes directly to normal half wake mode instead of displaying the web page. You can see more information in the web portal of the device by selecting Issues and Diagnostics from the menu on the left.

  • Your configured proxy is used for all requests used by the system, including the web engine. Note that the web engine doesn't use the custom uploaded certificate. If you have problems displaying certain web pages, check your system proxy settings.
