    Dear Friend,
    Question mark on icons are usually seen after updating the particular program. I suggest you remove the icon from the dock and add it again. This should solve the problem.

    Thank you

    This question mark shows that all the content of these browser are corrupted due to presence of virus in your mac. So to get rid from this problem first of all scan your mac with goo quality antivirus and restar it the question mark on icon will be removed.

    This problem mainly occurs
    1) when the website is down
    2) the internet connection is slow
    3)The website is repairing or under the process of construction
    4) repair your connection
    Hope this will be helpful

    Thankyou

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say................

    1.Firstly check that your Chrome is working finely or not.

    2.Some of it's may be deleted accidentally or corrupted.

    3.So you try to repair or re-install the software.

    4.Your Mac may be affected by any virus or malware.

    5.So you try to scan your Mac and delete the affected files.

    That's it by doing as i said you can solve your problem.

    All the best................

    Hello Friend..

    This problem occurs due to slow connectivity of the internet due to which the page is unable to open properly.
    Try to refresh the page 3-4 times and then see that the page looks fine.

    If the problem still persist, then i suggest you to use high speed internet in your Mac OS.
    These high speed internet can be Reliance Data Card, TATA Photon +, etc...
    This definitely helps you,

    Thank you..

    Hi,
    Due to some reasons you are facing the chrome and firefox applications in squre box.
    Some of the reasons are due to chrome and firefox applications are crashed or due to presence of virus files or due to chorme and firefox applications not updated to new version since long time.If you resolve this problems your square issue resolved.
    Clear the cache memory and check the icons shape if not then restart the mac once and check again.Even if not gone then install the antivirus files and delete the virus files.If not resolved then delete the chrome and firefox apps from system and install the new version apps.
    You can also avoid by updating the both applications.
