I received the latest digital copy of ME yesterday but cannot open it, or in fact any that are stored. When I try to open, I get an Error Message and in brackets at the end (bad refferer). Any ideas please?.

Where are you trying to view it eg on this site or via Pocketmags, what browser are you using, what type of machine, etc

Jason, Thanks for your reply.I normally view them on the ME site, my browser is Firefox and on a desk top computer. Any problems I have had in the past as been with the ME site but they have always tried to blame Pocketmags

I logged in as you just after posting my earlier reply and had no problem opening the latest ME, have a try with a different Browser to eliminate FF first, I was using Chrome and W10.

bad referrer usually indicates problem with non-availability of Flash - is this still required?

I can't really help much more but will contact Neil to see if he can get someone to look into it. In the past the "bad referrer" did seem to be related to flash as Frances mentioned but that has not been used for over a years worth of mags now.

In the mean time I suggest using Pocketmags to view which will hopefully be OK.

Other options that seem to have helped in the past are clearing your cache, trying to view from another device preferably on a different internet connection as that will eliminate your ISP as an issue such as mobile phone or work computer.

Jason, Thanks for your help. I did contact the magazine yesterday and this morning another Jason emailed me with a link that worked. He has suggested that there may be a problem between them and me.
