Default Re: Javascript Problems

In that case I'd really recommend you tried to find a compatible OS to use it on, even if its just for debugging - it really does prove invaluable for web development stuff.

Well, it works fine when I go on Ubuntu. So, it's not much for troubleshooting.

Default Re: Javascript Problems

Ahah! I have found the issue, yet not the source! To figure it out, I started doing a bunch of javascript coding. Here's my outcome:

Code:
<script language="javascript">
var newwindow;
function poptastic(url)
{
    newwindow=window.open(url,'name','height=400,width=200');
    if (window.focus) {newwindow.focus()}
}
</script>
<input type="button" onclick="poptastic('http://www.google.com');" value="Test!" />
Ran on FireFox: Nothing happens.
Ran on Internet Explorer: Window opens. (After allowing ActiveX controls. This I never had to do.)

If it's any help, thank me.

Try starting firefox in safe mode (that's firefox's safe mode, not window's safe mode.) Does it work or do you get exactly the same issue?

Ugh, the culprit was Norton...

Any who, I disabled their shit and it all works fine now. Thanks for your persistent help, +rep.

Wow, Norton also was responsible for the compatibility problems with my add-ons!

Unbelievable, the problem is back! After the FireFox update the Norton add-ons were enabled. I disabled them again but it still won't work!

*BUMP* A solution is appreciated. Norton cannot be the problem this time, I don't even have it anymore. Nor did I install any add-ons since. This all occurred after the last FireFox update.

These problems are continuing even after I've uninstalled Norton. They returned when FireFox updated.

EDIT: I reinstalled the update and all works fine. Must have been an installation error I was failed to be notified of.
