Hi All,

When I run SSRS reports in google chrome I get the blank screen. Does anyone know how to fix this issue? I am using SSRS 2012 environment and I am running reports from Report Manager. I need to conform if the reports can be run in Safari, Chrome, Firefox browsers. Any comments/feedbacks would be appreciated.

Regards,
Ganesh

I've never seen that issue. I can view reports in Chrome, although they don't render that well.

When you say blank screen, do you mean you don't even see the parameters pane and the view report button?

My experience has been that it's best to have your users view SSRS reports in Internet Explorer. In most cases reports were okay in Firefox, but even then sometimes things would go wonky. I know it sucks, but your best bet is IE.

You can do it with some limitations. You have to chage Reprting Services css. Take a lokk at:

Per Microsoft, Chrome is not supported with SSRS2012. It is supported starting with SSRS2014 when running on Windows. See the "Browser Requirements for Viewing Reports" in the links below:

It is for this very reason that I've installed the IE Tab plugin for Chrome. Check it out, it's just a button click to get a tab to render as IE, perfect for reports.

I had something similar for Firefox back in the day, very useful indeed.

Wow that plugin even does Active X. That's great because without Active X you cant print your reports.
