Default Javascript Problems

On my FireFox, when I attempt to use JavaScript it doesn't work! I checked the options, it allows java and javascript. I am running Windows 7 on an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC.

NOTE: JavaScript works perfectly fine on IE.

Default Re: Javascript Problems

Are you talking about Javascript or Java? You mention both, but the two are completely different things. If you're not sure:

Head over to here and type in your name then hit "demo now". Do you get an alert box popping up? If so then javascript is running.

To test Java, head over here and you should be able to click run and view the illusion. Does that work?

Both work fine, but it's javascript commands that are trouble. For example, if a link uses javascript to open a new window it will not work.

Are you sure that's not just the pop-up blocker?

Positive, it's off. Other things won't work as well, like buttons using javascript and as I said onclick commands.

I take it you've tried reinstalling and updating firefox / scanning for nasty bits of software just in case?

Can you give an example of a page that works in IE but not properly in firefox?

Hm, well the download button in Adobe exchange, the enter button on Habbo (I haven't tried in a year.), and some other things here and there.

I found a similar case, but it has some differences.

You might want to install firebug - it's a stupidly useful extension for web dev stuff. That'll show any javascript errors that occur in realtime which might help you track down what's going on.

I got that a bit ago actually, it with other add-ons appear to have compatibility issues on Windows 7.
