I would suspect your security settings.

Dpreview are probably doing a redirect when you click reply , Your browser probably has this type of activity switched off so you don't get redirected by 'man in the middle  attacks'.

Always an issue security Vs convenience.

Try lowering the security of dpreview in your browser.

PS

Microsoft would not 'stop' chrome installing given their legal loses in the 'browser wars', If you cannot install chrome or Fire fox then it is again more likely your security/AV settings than any conspiracy to confound you.

As i suspect your settings, installing Chrome would not help it merges you existing settings , try Firefox as this browser does its own thing rather than take system settings.

Failing that try one of the 'portable' versions as they sit outside the OS environment so negate anything you may have 'enabled'
