    Canít get MSE on my iPad 2 10th Feb 19 at 11:54 AM
    I have an iPad 2 with software if 9.3.5
    Safari wonít load the MSE website. It starts but never completes. So I tried to get the chrome or Firefox browsers via the App Store but it says not supported on this iPad. What can I do? Thanks.

    Try the following If only one webpage or website isn't working, you can remove data related to that site to see if it fixes the issue. Use these steps to remove cookies, cache, and other data stored by Safari for a specific site:
    1. Choose Safari > Preferences.
    2. Click the Privacy icon.
    3. Click the Details button.
    4. Search for the name or domain of the website whose data you want to remove.
    5. In the results list, click the domain (in this case MSE) that has data you want to remove.
    6. Click Remove.
    7. When you're finished, click Done and close the preferences window.
    8. Try to load MSE site.

    I've never used Safari on mine. Just use Chrome and Opera with no issues.

    I've got Chrome running on an iPad 2, but I installed it years ago.

    Apparently, the iPad 2 is now unable to accept further iOS updates, so that may have something to do with it....

    I have problems too. i can access the forums ok, but on the main site, only the top of a page loads. Think the ipad2 is just too old to cope with pic heavy pages

    In 9.3.5, there's a Privacy tab under Settings. There's nothing for Safari from there, though...

    If you have a more recent iOS device on the same account (phone or iPad) and install Chrome on that, the App Store should then let you download an earlier version on the iPad 2.

    Once you have downloaded the earlier version successfully you can delete the newer version from the more up to date device.

    Works in most cases but obviously relies on you having a more up to date device on the same Apple ID.

    For any Safari settings in iOS 9.3.5 for iPad 2 the following link might be of use:

    Been having a similar problem with three devices since Saturday (iPad 2 (iOS 9.3.5), iPhone X and iMac).

    I never log out of MSE on any device but now when I go to open the site I am always logged out. I put in my log in details (which I know are correct) but am told 'invalid username or password'. I then have to go through the Forgot Your Password procedure to create a new password and I manage to get logged in. But the next time I try to open up the MSE site, instead of just opening up, I am logged out and the whole procedure has to be gone through again - creating a new password etc etc. It is exhausting just trying to use the site as a member!!!
