Anchor links do not work

Ever since starting with the FF4 beta (and now into the stable build), any time I click on a link that goes to a different part of the page (an anchor link), absolutely nothing happens.

From what I can tell, it looks like FF4 and up does not support anchor links? This seems to happen everywhere I try. Just inconvenient...especially with Table of Contents in emails.

Re: Anchor links do not work

I have no problem coding links with a fragment-id do these fail for you?

If the problem is solved, please indicate what the problem was.

If the problem is not solved, please provide example url and where to click, and what version of IE that you are using.

Re: Anchor links do not work

You know, I was doing some more troubleshooting on my end, and it looks like I did speak too soon on ALL anchors not working. Regular ones work fine. The ones I'm working in are actually within a web program using alot of Java.

Now, it didn't always give this issue. All versions of Firefox before 4 let these anchor links work in the page...FF4 seems to keep it from happening.

Because it's working in an a website that requires login information, I'll go ahead and abandon this thread. I'll try to solve it on my own time. But thank you for the help!

Re: Anchor links do not work

I have the same problem in FF10 and FF13 when the anchor and url reference are both in the same frame. When I open the frame in a new tab, the anchor link works.
