Preparing your Browser for FYI

To get the most from FYI, you should first configure your browser settings.

Allowing Pop-ups

In order to select documents in FYI and edit them in your browser, you need to set your browser to allow pop-ups from https://go.fyi.app.

This will open the selected document in a new tab for you to view and edit.

If you see a Pop-ups Blocked icon in the URL bar in your browser, as in the example below, click this to display the options and select "Always allow pop-ups and redirects".

If you do not see the Pop-ups blocked icon, you can adjust your settings as follows:

  • In Chrome via the Settings - Privacy and security - Site settings
  • In Firefox via the Menu - Options - Content options
  • In Edge via the Settings - Cookies and site permissions - Pop-ups and redirects.

For additional information, refer to the troubleshooting article on Document does not open when selecting Edit in Browser.
