How to Fix an Incompatible Browser Error

By Charles Poole

The Internet browser on your computer allows you to go online and view Web pages. Although a lot of Internet browsers are available for both the Mac and PC operating systems, some are not. When you get an incompatible browser error, you need to make sure the browser is compatible with your operating system. If you know the browser is compatible with your operating system, then you might have corrupted system files. If that is the case, you need to update your system files.

Step 1

Check to make sure your Internet browser is compatible with your operating system. For instance, Firefox is compatible with Mac and PC, but Safari will not run on a PC.

Step 2

Click the "Start" button and then go to the "All Programs" icon.

Step 3

Click "Windows Update" from the menu.

Step 4

Click the "Check for updates" button on the right side of the software.

Step 5

Click on your browser's software update. For instance, if you are using Internet Explorer, click on the "Internet Explorer" update.

Step 6

Click "Install Updates" at the bottom of the page and wait for the update to install.
