On certain pages of a website, get a Javascript:void(0) in status bar and no response to the action but clicking on same object works in IE. I am not a developer, just a user and I don't like IE!

When I click on some buttons on certain pages of certain websites, there is no response and "javascript:void(0)" is flashed in the status bar; then "Done". When I click on same button on same site/page in IE, it works fine. Have detailed one site/page but this is not the only one. I am not a developer, just a user, so please keep it simple!

Such links usually have an onclick attribute that does the actual action.

Make sure that you do not block JavaScript settings and preferences for interactive web pages


Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems and Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode start window to disable all extensions.
You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

Yes - personally, it was the extension "RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin 14.0.2" which was incompatible with Firefox 4 - or, should I say, which prompted this "javascript void" on certain web pages

I am a ASP.NET developer and since upgrading Firefox I now get this problem all the time.

Error shown in Firebug is 'WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions is not defined'.

Running in Safe Mode makes no difference.

I am behind a firewall but everything works fine in IE and Chrome (and used to in Firefox).
