1. Using A Separate Web Browser
You can watch your Funimation content on their website by using another browser. If you still want to use Chrome, there is another way to make it work.
The first thing you need to do is find out what browser others with the same issue are using. It is recommended to use Firefox or Microsoft Edge for the time being because they are reported to be working on Funimation’s website.
If you know what browser you want (Firefox or Microsoft Edge), download it from the internet.
After the browser’s successful installation, try to log into Funimation’s website on that browser. If you are still having trouble loading their site, then continue with these steps.
Close Google Chrome and navigate to your file’s/folder’s settings for Firefox or Edge (this may be different for every browser, but the same basic information is used).
After you have reached the destination folder, find the executable file for whichever browser you are currently trying to use. Usually, this will be in the Program Files or Program Files (x86) folder. If it is not there, open up your computer’s search bar and search for the file.
Once you have successfully found the program, double click on it to load it. After the loading is complete, you can try to navigate through Funimation’s web pages again. This should allow Firefox or Edge to hold up against Chrome when using Funimation’s website platform.
2. Using Extensions
If you are having trouble with Funimation not working on chrome there is another way to get around it. Some extensions can be used on your Chrome browser that will allow the site to work correctly.
You need two things before you begin this process: Funimation’s website address for extension downloads and an alternative web browser.
We recommend the User-Agent Switcher for use on Funimation’s site. This will allow your Chrome browser to work with other browsers so you can get around any issues.
Once you have found the extension, install it onto your Chrome browser. Afterward, open up Google Chrome and find their website address for the User-Agent Switcher extension.
After you have found the address, copy and paste it into the Chrome browser. This will take you to their website, which will provide a list of other web browsers that this extension is compatible with. Click on the option that says ‘Firefox Compatible.’
Once you have selected Firefox as your compatible option, a confirmation message will appear. There will be a box that says ‘Use the selected User-Agent.’ Click on the option that says ‘New User-Agent.’
After clicking on the new user agent, there will be an address bar directly under your browser’s new assigned task. Copy and paste it to this address if you didn’t already fill it:
After adding it, there will be a drop-down menu under the newly assigned task. Find Firefox on that list and click on it to load Firefox’s website.
After you have loaded their site, you are free to log into your Funimation account. After logging in, we recommend that you go back to the User-Agent Switcher extension and change your browser back to Chrome. This will make it easier for you to navigate through the site.
Once you have changed your assigned browser back to Chrome, try to use Funimation’s website again. When using the extension, it should allow you to get around any problems that might occur with Chrome while navigating their site.
After successfully using Funimation’s site through Firefox or Edge, we recommend that you close your browser immediately afterward. So that other problems will not arise. This is because some browsers do not like to work together and might cause issues loading pages after using two different ones. If any of the websites don’t work, try alternating them so you can use Funimation’s site instead.
Download the Funimation app on your mobile device (phone or tablet). After opening and logging in, go back to your web browser and try using Funimation’s site. If the app and website both work for you, then download the app onto all of your other devices. This way your entire household can use the services without any problems.
If there is more than one user in your household, it is recommended that you set up a Funimation account for each user. This is because some of their shows will be available to watch, but not others, so it is the only way you can be sure to view everything on your account.
If you are still having problems logging into Funimation, go back to the User-Agent Switcher extension and add ‘Android’ as a compatible browser. After adding it, try to log into Funimation’s site again. This should resolve the problem.
Suppose Funimation is not working on your Chrome browser. In that case, you can download some extensions onto your web browser. These will work with other browsers so you can get around any unforeseen issues. Once you have set up your browser to work with other compatible browsers, open it and try to log into Funimation’s site again. If the website works on Chrome but not on Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari, close your web browser. Further, download an extension that will allow your browser to operate together to watch what you want successfully.
If you are having trouble logging onto the site, try to download an app on whatever device you are using at the moment. Don’t forget to change your assigned browser back to Chrome once you have successfully logged into Funimation and watched what you wanted.
