I have trouble with website links not working but they work fine on I.E. it's a problem on quite a few sites .

Posted

The problem I'm having is the links are just unclickable . I have checked all the settings and everything seems ok , but the links are not working . Everything is fine in I.E. and I am not having any problems , it appears to only be when using mozilla . On this site http://compare100.com it's the links at the bottom of the page , is any body else having the same issue ?

I can't seem to replicate this issue. You could try doing a reset of Firefox (don't worry it will save your passwords and history). That is the first troubleshooting step you should take.

Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • Press and hold Shift and left-click the Reload button.
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Command + Shift + R" (MAC)

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

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

I have experienced this problem and am trouble-shooting it on a web site I manage. The issue seems to be tied to a style sheet issue. The page loads fine but links don't work. The page has multiple divisions and it seems that Firefox has trouble if there is a division floated right. If I remove the float:right; style, the links all work, but then the page doesn't render correctly. Perhaps this is a doctype-related issue? Anyone have any insight into why this would be the case?

After a bit more troubleshooting... This appears to be a CSS float clearing issue. In a page with both left and right floated containers, if the float is not cleared in one of various ways, Firefox may render the page properly, but the hyperlinks do not function. By clearing the float in the application of the page footer division, I am able to correct the problem in my web page structure such that all browsers render correctly with working links. When you experience this problem, you won't be able to do anything to Firefox to correct it, the page owner will have to resolve their stylesheets, unless a patch or something comes out to address whatever causes Firefox to behave this way.

You can use the Stylish extension or website specific code in userContent.css to override or modify CSS rules for a specific domain.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the user profile folder.
