Clicking javascript links, even help button in FF Options, opens blank new page.

As I said, clicking any link in a javascript element, such as a WYSIWYG editor in the back-end of a Joomla site, doesn't open the link, it opens a new and blank FF window, usually larger than the monitor.
This link behaves this way:
<a id="text_image" class="mceButton mceButtonEnabled mce_image" title="Insert/edit image" onclick="return false;" onmousedown="return false;" href="javascript:;">
Same link works fine in IE and Safari.
This also happens with Help buttons in Firefox dialogue boxes.
This has made Firefox, which has been my default browser for many years, unusable to me.

Thanks for trying, but as I said, everything looks fine....i.e. "show my homepage" is right there in the dropdown like it should be. I even tried changing it to another alternative and then back again. same problem. My guess is that some program I am running is conflicting with FF5, but who knows which one.

  • If I click a link in my email service(Thunderbird) which opens a web page. When I later open Firefox, the previous page appears instead of my home page. How do I stop this?

    Firefox opens for 2 seconds then closes until it opens again ,with the link page, instead of my Home Page

    I use Ubuntu 10.04 and I also get this problem when attempting to open a link through TBird 3.1.10. Firefox 4.0.1 '''opens to my homepage only'''. I have to physically put the link address in the address bar to go to the link.

  • On some sites when I click a link to upen a pdf file Mozilla opens a new tab and nothing happens. Why is this happening?

    When the new tab opens in the address bar it shows About:Blank. If I switch to the IE engine it will download the PDF file without any problems so I'm wondering why Native Mozilla is having this problem opening the PDF file. It's a real hastle switching engines, especially when I'm logged into something like a bank web page because I have to re-log in to the site a second time as switching engines cancels my original log-in.

    Couldn't it also be the way Mozilla processes things which differ from IE? It works every time I use the IE engine add on which tells me that either Mozilla is processing things differently or that IE is doing something different. I've heard that IE doesn't always follow the same HTML standards that Mozilla does. Could this be the difference and would it be something that Mozilla could change to process the same as IE?

  • Clicking on a link to open a new page or tab gives me a blank page.

    If I click on a link to open a new page or a new tab, the page that opens is always blank and no address is in the address bar. Also, occasionally, my refresh button is "grayed" out so I can't hit that either. I think this is some sort of security setting blocking it. Can anyone help.

    Thanks Jason, I had the same problem and did exactly the steps above. Problem solved! You rock! :)

  • When I click a link to open the page in new tab, it open the new page beside my page.

    After I update FireFox to version 3.6.8, I could not open the new page in the last tab, it always opens the new page in beside the tab.
    Mmm…I could not make sure the new page or new tab I said is the same with you…?? (I use Chinese version so that I don’t know if it’s the same or not…)
    A window could open several pages with different tabs, and I could click different tab to different page, right?
    If I right clicked a link to open the page to “new tab” in the same window, the new tab opened in the last tab of my window.
    But after I update FireFox to version 3.6.8 and I click a link to open the page to “new tab” in the same windoe, the new tab will open beside my page. (Mmm…Open on right of my page.)
    I would like the “new tab” open to the last tab in my window, not “beside” the tab I used. How could I change the setting??)
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == After I update FireFox to 3.6.8

    That feature isn't new to 3.6.8, it was changed in 3.6.
    Type '''about:config''' in the URL bar and hit Enter.
    ''If you see the warning, you can confirm that you want to access that page.''
    Filter = '''browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent'''
    Double-click that preference to change the value to '''''false'''''

  • I downloaded the latest Adobe Reader when prompted. Since then I cannot use Safari File Print to print web pages - the printer dialogue window opens but the page is blank. Also, when I try to use the safari Help button,the dialogue box is blank.

    I downloaded the latest Adobe Reader update when prompted. Since then I cannot use Safari>File>Print to print web pages - the printer dialogue window opens, but the page remains blank. Also when I try to use the Safari Help button, the dialogue box opens but remains infuriatingly blank. Can anyone help me to solve this problem?

    Back up all data.
    Quit Safari. In the Finder, select Go ▹ Go to Folder from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-G. Copy the line of text below into the box that opens, and press return:
    /Library/Internet Plug-ins
    From the folder that opens, remove any items that have the letters “PDF” in the name. You may be prompted for your login password. Then launch Safari and test.
    If you still have the issue, repeat with this line:
    ~/Library/Internet Plug-ins
    If you don’t like the results of this procedure, restore the items from the backup you made before you started. Relaunch Safari again.

  • Open a new page from a button of table view

    Hello,
    I search how to open a new page when i click on a button of a table view. I already tried to use navigate connector but i have an error when I compiled it (flash doesn't support). Do you know a workaround or tips ?
    Thanks,

    Hi Aurelien,
    Why don't you try creating a pop up iView on clicking the button on your table view.
    You can have a look at this link for understanding how a pop up iView works:

  • Firefox insists on opening last page visited even though it's supposed to open on home page.

    My Firefox insists on opening last page visited even though it's supposed to open on home page.
    Bad job guys, this is dumb, I am disappointed.
    I've followed instructions found in the following links with no luck:
    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/833603
    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1019367
    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1018231
    I deleted sessionstore.js it worked once but the issue re-occured afterwards. I don't have the file user.js.

    Make sure that Firefox closes properly to prevent Session Restore from reopening those tabs.
    Use "Firefox > Exit" (Windows: Firefox/File > Exit; Mac: Firefox > Quit Firefox; Linux: Firefox/File > Quit) to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox title bar.
    You can check for problems with the sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak files in the Firefox profile folder that store session data.
    *Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Show Folder (Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder)
    *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox
    *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Multiple_profile_files_created
    Deleting sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and Tab Groups and open and closed (undo) tabs to get lost and you will have to recreate them (make a note or bookmark them if possible).
    You can leave the sessionstore.bak file with the time stamp appended that Firefox creates automatically in case of updating.
    There is software like Advanced SystemCare with its Surfing Protection feature that can protect files in the Firefox profile folder against changes.
    If you have such software then check the settings or uninstall this software.

  • How to open a new page from a Spry Table click, with element info?

    Hello, Spry experts!
    This is probably simple, but I've searched for hours and can't find what I need. I'm using Dreamweaver CS4 and Spry 1.6.1 to create a simple Spry Table from an XML data set using PHP as my back end.  I've used Dreamweaver's Insert->Spry->Spry Data Set to create everything, and the table is working fine.  Colors, clicks, sorts, etc., are all working correctly as expected.
    What I want is to be able to add a behavior such that when a table row is clicked, I can open a new page.  Moreover, I want to pass a parameter from the table to the new page, like http://www.mydomain.com/newpage.php?aid=12345 or whatever.
    So, for example, my table has two columns, "a_id" and "a_name", and my repeat region looks like this:
    <div spry:region="xml_assignments">
    <table width="500">
    <tr>
    <th spry:sort="a_id" class="spry_header">ID</th>
    <th spry:sort="a_name" class="spry_header">Assignment</th>
    </tr>
    <tr spry:repeat="xml_assignments" spry:setrow="xml_assignments" spry:odd="spry_odd" spry:even="spry_even" spry:hover="spry_hover" spry:select="spry_select">
    <td>{a_id}</td>
    <td>{a_name}</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </div>
    What I want is to be able to open an entirely new URL, passing the value of the {a_id} in the selected row as a parameter to the new URL, as in something like:  http://www.mydomain.com/newpage.php?aid={a_id}
    So my questions are: 
    1. How best to apply the action to the table?  Add an onclick to the tr tag?  Something else?
    2. How to extract the {a_id} value from the current row and pass it as a parameter to the action?
    Or maybe just take another approach entirely?
    I know that I can make the actual text in the table cells hyperlinks, and use them to link to the new page, which is fine.  The desire here is just to make it so that the user can click "anywhere" on the table row (as they can currently do with the spry:select behavior) and have the link kick off, whether they actually click on the linked text or somewhere in the row where there is no text.
    I'm sure this is obvious and simple, but I'm new to this level of Spry detail, and my brain is fried from hunting.  Any guidance will be gratefully appreciated!
    Glen Barney

    I found the answer myself, after posting this, of course!
    I changed:
    <tr spry:repeat="xml_assignments" spry:setrow="xml_assignments" spry:odd="spry_odd" spry:even="spry_even" spry:hover="spry_hover" spry:select="spry_select">
    to
    <tr spry:repeat="xml_assignments" spry:setrow="xml_assignments" spry:odd="spry_odd" spry:even="spry_even" spry:hover="spry_hover" spry:select="spry_select" onclick="window.location.href='./newpage.php?aid={a_id}';">
    Basically just added the onclick parameter...
    And it all just worked!

  • Menu bar button hyperlink to open a new page?

    I want to know if there is a way to add a hyperlink to a Menu bar button to open a new page showing a pdf file?

    To open url on button click, you can use the following example, that I used in one of my cases...
    Z P/L analysis
        ls_button-text     = 'P/L analysis monitor'.
        ls_button-tooltip = 'P/L analysis monitor'.
        lv_string1 = 'javascript:window.open( "'.
        lv_string2 = '" );'.
        CONCATENATE lv_string1
        lv_url2
        lv_object_id
        lv_string2
        INTO lv_string3.
        ls_button-on_client_click = lv_string3.
        ls_button-page_id  = me->component_id.
        ls_button-enabled  = abap_true.
        APPEND ls_button TO rt_buttons.
        CLEAR ls_button.
    Comments:
    - lv_string3 represents the URL
    - lv_url2 contains the url of bsp component, which you can build manualy or read from any table with select single statement
    - lv_object_id represents the id of opportunity which you can read from BOL or with one of crm_order_read function modules
    Regards.

  • Link to url, "_self" is opening a new page...

    I am trying to get my button to navigate to _self and the link is opening a new page. Is there something wrong in my code?

    function mouseDownHandler(event:MouseEvent):void {

    both parameters are strings or string variables.  you're using a variable (which shouldn't be in quotes).

    All of a sudden I can no longer open tabs by clicking "+" or right clicking on the tool bar. To open a new page, I have to open a whole new Firefox window. How can I fix this?
    Also, Firefox crashes frequently. Is there a fix for this also?

    Uninstall the Ask toolbar and it should work again. There is a compatibility issue with the Ask toolbar and Firefox 3.6 that prevents new tabs from being opened.
    There are a couple of places to check for the Ask toolbar:
    * Check the Windows Control panel for the Ask Toolbar - http://about.ask.com/apn/toolbar/docs/default/faq/en/ff/index.html#na4
    * Also check your list of extensions, you may be able to uninstall it from there - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Uninstalling+add-ons
    For the second issue, the [[Firefox crashes]] support article may help.

    I used to be alble to double click and open a new page but that is no longer an option. Because you cant get a total view of the playlist it is almost impossible.. if a song is in position 95 and I want to put it at 3 I have to hold it and drag it till the curor moves.. This makes creating an order almnost impossible because you cn only see half of the songs

    This is a follow-up to the above question I had.
    Since i noticed people looking at the question, but no replies showing up, i contacted BC support directly with the same question.
    I got a reply.
    I did tests based on the reply.
    Here is what is going on based on the reply.
    (spoiler alert : It works... but it's not yet a perfect score.)
    All the details are posted here :
