Forefox convert a web adress to a link I don't like it i wnat to write it without conversion

I am written/converting pages for mobils (Smart Phones). I have written a list of links. The text for each link items is the web address, but I have want to connect the linkfunction to a button (the best way for phones).

When I write www.xzy.dk as a text not as a linkaddress, Firefox convert it to linkaddres and is following my ccs style for links and not the style for the text.

As fare I can see it ist a problem in Firefox 19 yesterday I have automatically installed the 19 over the 18

Works fine here as can be expected from the source code.

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.

Firefox doesn't do that by default.

Where are you typing this text?

Is this in an editor on a web page?

It is possible that such an editor does this automatically, but in Firefox you usually need to use a toolbar button to accomplish this.

I know what I am doing. I am making the program work in Home Site an when I type a web adresse as:

www.xyz.dk

then IE in Home site and Crome it is normal text but in Firefox 19 it is made to a link.

Re: Forefox convert a web adress to a link I don't like it i wnat to write it without conversion

It happens on this forum because all links are linkified automatically by the forum software.

The code that you posted shouldn't do this. So there may be other error in the code if this happens.

You can check the page source for tags marked in red to make sure that you haven't omitted close tags or made other typos.

  • Firefox > Web Developer > Page Source
  • Tools > Web Developer > Page Source (Ctrl+U)
  • Right-click on a web page to open the context menu and select View Page Source

Have a look and open the source code in Firefox and in IE - same source code but see the difference. Crome, Opera and Safari present the same result as IE.!
