Fidelity, always very nice towards me, has been telling me for 6 months or more that I should try their new “Active Trader Pro” trading platform — especially since I am entitled to free access to it (probably because of my advanced age).

Today I thought I might give it a try to see if I can use it INSTEAD of the new system which does not sit well with me.

As soon as I tried to launch it I was told I needed Microsoft’s ‘Silverlight’ enhanced screen display software. I thought I already had it. Then the problem became apparent. Google Chrome has stopped supporting Silverlight — over the last 6 months or so!

That is a problem. I will not switch from Chrome. It appears that this is a well known issue. I am kind of surprised that Fidelity has not addressed it.

Just a heads up.
