Start page redirects to 'about:blank'

Submitted: 1/7/2016
Whether the URL is in (Projects Options --> Start URLs) or in the intial address bar, the project is redirected to 'about:blank' page. 


Any tricks to prevent this from happening?

I open the project in VWR ,it directs me to http://www.visualwebripper.com/AppHome.aspx

What you set another URL in Project options > Start URLs won't be the actual one used for design, that's correct, please you manually input url in address bar as you expect , then navigating to open the url, then save project, then the start url in address bar should be refreshed .

I'm guessing that your internet connection got problem, if page couldn't be opened properly, it will display 'about:blank'. maybe you're located behind company firewall, propose that you disable it.

I've tried to open the url same as your gif, it works fine in VWR editor. see the attached screenshot of mine.

Be noted that you still are using an old version of VWR, propose that you upgrade to new V3.0, see if the issue persists?

You might try to set proxies in your project, we've provided a free private proxy switch:

Hmm, that's weird.  I get the same problem.  I downloaded Version 3.0.4 and even tried to start a new project in "safe mode with networking" to turn off all firewalls and I still get the same redirect to 'about:blank' page.
