So in this segment of code:

<table style="width:100%">
<tr>
<td> <div class="projectsLink"> 	<p class="one"><a href="undergraduate.html"  onclick="location.href='undergraduate.html'" > Undergraduate Studies </a> </p> </td>  
<td> 							<p class="one"><a href="postgraduate.html" onclick="location.href='postgraduate.html'" > Postgraduate Studies </a></p> </td>  
 <td>							<p class="one"><a href="research.html" onclick="location.href='research.html'"> Research </a> </p> </td> 
</div>
</tr> 

the href are not working. The text is not made clickable when i hover and does nothing when i click. I've tried resetting Firefox, checked there are no proxies but nothing's changed. In Google chrome they work fine.

Can anyone suggest a solution?

In order for a link to be click-able, the program has to recognize it as a link. Most links start with WWW, HTTP, HTTPS.

This site doesn't do well with HTML code. I think you posted:

<p class="one"><a href="undergraduate.html" onclick="location.href='undergraduate.html'" > Undergraduate Studies </a> </p> <p class="one"><a href="postgraduate.html" onclick="location.href='postgraduate.html'" > Postgraduate Studies </a></p> <p class="one"><a href="research.html" onclick="location.href='research.html'"> Research </a> </p>

One common reason for this problem is that Firefox does not let you click through a transparent element to a link behind/below it. And for the same reason, hovering over that part of the transparent element doesn't show a pointer.

If you right-click the link > Inspect Element (Q) can you see whether a different element is highlighted in the Inspector? If so, that's the element blocking access to the link.

If you don't see any problem, is this a page you can provide a link to, i.e., one doesn't need an account to access it?

Note that the page code includes raw code in a div.content-raw that you can use in cases like this.

Yes, I find it very handy for copying posts from locked threads in the original wikitext format.

Hi jscher2000, when i right click the link for expample Undergraduate Studies and inspect the element, i see the <a onclick="location.href='undergraduate.html'" > Undergraduate Studies </a> so i guess this is the correct element.

I am not sure what do you mean by: "is this a page you can provide a link to, i.e., one doesn't need an account to access it?"
but if instead of the < a href="postgraduate.html" onclick="location.href='postgraduate.html'">  i try the <a href="https://www.google.com"  onclick="location.href='https://www.google.com'" >

It only works when i am in the "inspect element mode" and then the link Undergraduate Studies and the other two become clickable and hitting them direct me in the page requested.

I think it is a problem with the Firefox. Does anyone know another way of doing it? I just want to be directed in an .html page by clicking the links. Just so simple as that.

Just a continuation of the previous post: but if instead of the < a href="postgraduate.html" onclick="location.href='postgraduate.html'"> i try the <a href="https://www.google.com" onclick="location.href='https://www.google.com'" > it doesn't work either.

I meant, if you want to post a link to the page that has this problem, feel free to do that, but if it is only accessible to a person with an account on the site, so volunteers here couldn't see it, then never mind.

Maybe the script is the problem. How about eliminating that since it doesn't seem to add anything anyway:

<a href="postgraduate.html">Postgraduate</a>
