    We updated this recently, and the update is rolling out.

    Basically our browser was emulating IE7 (amazing, that's the default for this kind of thing) and now it's using a more modern browser version.

    Try downloading again at and see if it is better?

  • it does not work i deleted my flux installed that flux version but nothing changed.

    So are you on Windows 7 (up to date?)

    Also, are there any antivirus apps on the machine that make changes to webpages?

    My Windows 7 tester has all the script debugging warnings on and it's working (of course) so I want to figure out what is different with yours.

  • Same here. Win 7 updated and everything.

  • Same problem with me, I am on Win7. Tried to downgrade to F.lux 3 but I get the same error. The software suggests me to change my browser, lol

    @Fabio-O-Meglio-Faffo f.lux 4.55 (the latest build) should be asking for a very recent version of IE - are you seeing this in that build?

  • @herf Actually I am using f.lux 3. Anyway the coordinates of my current location look correct, so I won't need to change it. The problem stays though, feel free to ask questions if I can help somehow. Please consider that I'm using chrome and I didn't update IE since a lifetime because I don't want to use it.
