Re: Failure to open links using window.open (applies to FF17 and FF18, works ok with FF16 and below)
Do you have a real working page with this code?
I do get a pop-up/tab opening with your code, get a server not found error.
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.
