Why won't my tree draw in an inactive tab? (Chrome browser)

Recent versions of Chrome appear to be forestalling execution of the Flash plug-in when running in tabs other than the currently active tab.  This has the effect that if you open a tree view in a new tab but remain on your existing tab, the tree doesn't load -- when you switch to the tree tab, the spinner is seen running until the tree eventually draws. 

Chrome has a setting that allows you to override this behavior for designated web sites.  To enable Geni trees to draw on inactive tabs, do the following:

  1. Click the "hamburger" menu, Settings, Show advanced settings... 
  2. Under Privacy click the button labeled "Site Settings" or "Content settings..."
  3. Scroll down to Plugins and select the radio button labeled "Detect and run important plugin content" 
  4. Click the button labeled Manage exceptions... 
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the list and add "[*.]www.geni.com" /  "Allow" and click Done
