Hi Support,

I have a text along with the image used as a hyperlink as follows.

"Sample Text.<a href="javascript:myfunction()"><img title="sample image" src="sample.gif" /></a>"

When i copy the above text and paste it inside a HTML Control (for e.g. iframe), the control removes the href attribute of 'anchor' tag. It happens only with firefox and safari. It is working correctly in internet explorer.

"Sample Text.<a ><img title="sample image" src="sample.gif" /></a>"

Is there any solution for this.? Awaiting for sooner response

Chosen solution

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

Does that also happen here if you switch to HTML source and paste?
