Links won't open--- Problem Identified.

Postby zack832 » Tue, 23 Jan 2018, 05:50

Got a new weird issue. I"m using version 27.4.2 64 bit on mint 17.3. Have a couple of issues I've been living with but this new one is a real problem. All of a sudden every time I click on a link the screen flashes then returns to the page I was on, not the new tab the link should have opened. If I right click I can open the link in a new tab as it should.

Note I'm running a dual Pale moon setup - 2 profiles running at the same time. The second profile is not exhibiting the same issue.

After going into safe mode, I find it's one of the extensions I'm using. After some digging it is related to u-block origin 1.13.8.

Why not upgrade to the latest uBlock Origin? You don't have to stick with what is available at AMO.
Read these instructions on how to install uBlock Origin.
Give it a try; see if it works. ;)

@ zack832

Off-topic:
Just curious.

I also use 64 bit linux MInt, but I use (18.3). Since you're running Pale Moon 27.4.2, is there a good reason why you haven't updated to version (27.7.1)? Staying on a old version of Pale Moon does create problems eventually.

AS to the ublock update I did find and install ublock Origin Updater 1.3.0 that will keep it updated to the latest version.

In regard to updating Palemoon, I jumped through hoops to get the dual profiles installed and have not found an easy way to update and keep it running as I have it - but then I really haven't looked that hard. I've been dealing with one issue that odds are would be resolved if I updated or reinstalled - I cannot send a link to Thunderbird to email. I do that often and have to copy and paste. I have other installs of Palemoon on other systems and it works fine on those.

Update: just downloaded and ran Pale Moon for Linux Installer and did the update to 27.7.1 Still have the email issue....
