My account has been disabled. What do I do?

For assistance with a disabled account, call us at 800.922.9489 8:30-5:00 pm Eastern Time Zone (ET), or contact us.

Why can't I connect to primeforlife.org at work?

This is most likely due to your company's Internet firewall settings. Many employers put such restrictions in place to protect their networks. Contact your network administrator for information.

If your computer is always connected to the Internet (through a cable modem or DSL line, for example), a firewall is recommended. If you're using a standard dial-up connection (through America Online, for example), your computer has a much lower level of risk.

Broken Links & Browsers

Why does nothing happen when I click a link on your website?

If a link is supposed to send you to another webpage when clicked, and nothing happens:

However, we use clear boxes that are not pop-up windows, and should not be affected by your popup window settings. If you would like to try disabling popup blockers to fix the problem, please see "How do I disable my popup blocker?"
    In addition to popup blockers possibly causing links on our site to not respond, you may find that your web browser's settings could be interfering with our website. We design our site to work with the default settings on most web browsers. Please set your browser's Internet Options or Preferences back to the default settings and try the links or features again.
  2. Is your web browser security settings set on "high"? If your web browser security settings has been set to "high", your browser will block cookies, JavaScript, and other scripting components that are use on the website. Try changing preferences back to the default settings. fused on primeforlife.org.
  3. Is primeforlife.org on the restricted-sites list on your computer? Check that primeforlife.org has not been added to a restricted-sites list.
  4. Do you have extra security software installed? If you had installed extra security software such as Windows Defender on your computer, you may see unexpected behavior on our website.
  5. Do you have the latest version of the plug-in or software? If the link is supposed to open a PDF document, a video, or an audio file, you may need to update the software to the most recent versions. See the help questions for those files.

Which browsers and operating systems work best with PRI’s website?

We recommend Google Chrome for an optimal experience with the website and online applications.

This website is designed to work with most web browsers for PCs and Macs. However, in order to get the best user experience while navigating through our website, we recommend you always use the most current version of browsers to make sure our web pages display quickly, and that you have the latest security updates.

PDF Documents & Adobe Reader

What are PDF files and how do I view them?

A Portable Document Format (PDF) file is a self-contained cross-platform document. It is a file that will look the same on the screen and in print, regardless of what kind of computer or printer someone is using and regardless of what software package was originally used to create it.

PDF files are indicated by either the letters [PDF or pdf] or the following graphic following the filename PDF.PDF icon

Although they contain the complete formatting of the original document, including fonts and images, PDF files are highly compressed, allowing complex information to be downloaded efficiently.

Once a PDF reader software is properly installed, you just need to click on a link to a a PDF file on the webpage you are viewing, and it will be loaded for viewing on your computer.

While most modern web browsers are able to open PDF files by default, you may need to download a PDF reader software. There are several free PDF readers available, but we highly recommend using the free Adobe Reader software to view PDF files.

Download Adobe Acrobat Reader.

How do I print a PDF File?

When printing PDF files from within your web browser, do NOT use the web browser print facility. Instead, use the print button in the Adobe Reader tool bar.


Video & Audio

Is watching the online videos secure?

Yes, watching the online videos does not expose your computer to any potential risk.

Why won't the podcast/videocast player fully buffer?

There could be a few reasons why this may happen. The most common cause is that your Internet connection has been disturbed or lost during the buffering of the video.

Please ensure that your Internet connection is stable and refresh the webpage. The video should fully buffer.

Another reason could be the use of a firewall. Please ensure that your firewall allows video streaming from this website and refresh the page.

If you are still encountering problems with the video player, please email our support team, call 800.922.9489 8:30-5:00 pm Eastern Time Zone (ET), or email us.
