Assuming this relates to using a Raspberry Pi ( and sometimes questions appear here that do not), it would be helpful to indicate the Operating System you are running on your RPi, and what browser you are using to access the site that is causing you concern.

Previous replies in these forums about flight aware have pointed out that this package has its own support forum which might be a better informed source of advice about a specialised application.

Exactly what site are you trying to access, because when I try flightware.com (your thread title) I get a point of sale software solutions site, and flightaware.com is an airline flight tracking site, which did work when I clicked on a flight in progress.

Raspberry Pi3
Raspbian Jessie Pixel 2016-09-23 (fully upgraded)
Chromium 51.0.2704.91
Firefox-ESR 45.5.0
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?

It is the airline tracking site, but clicking the tab under My FlightAware will not display the map of the US, not sure if some plugin is missing

thank you

Guys,
I've got the FlightAware tracking application going on a spare PI plus attached SDR (software defined radio) dongle. It's been going non-stop since March16 and it's an interesting "wot's going on" addition to my general browsing using either my Win7, Ubuntu or Android machines. I get an neat map centred on me, a list of aircraft visible (around 75mile radius of me) plus the locations of said aircraft with details.

The point here is that while the display is fine on Win7, Unbuntu (Firefox) and Android (Chrome) it doesn't (didn't last time I tried) work on my Pi3B with Pixel and I assume the latest included browser. Shame really, was looking forward to watching the detail on my 42" TV/Pi3B system.

So, seems the current Pi browser doesn't work with the Pi home flightaware system so may not also work on the flightaware home site.
Share and Enjoy.
