View Full Version : Can not close popup window

15-Aug-2012, 01:26
Using Firefox (ESP) 10 for SUSE Linux 11. When a popup window opened with a OK button, it could not be closed. I encountered two issues:

1) In a javascript I used


then the popup window displayed: 100 OK.

But when I clicked on the OK button, the popup failed to response such that it remained as it has been.

2) Use window.local.href="http://www.google.com"; in a javascript, the google site could not be launched; However, window.open("http://www.google.com") could launch the site successfully.

How could I solve the problems?

I really mean window.location.href in the previous posting: 2) Use window.local.href="http://www.google.com";

This sounds like the issue which was discussed on this thread (http://forums.suse.com/showthread.php?824-Firefox-dialog-box-not-accepting-input) and there's also a bug report filed against SLED about problems with dialogue boxes in Firefox.

In that thread and the bug the fix is to uninstall the beagle-firefox package. So try removing beagle-firefox and see if that solves it.

Personally I always remove all the beagle packages from SLED installs because I consider it an irritation rather than a help. With quota limited home directories mounted over the network it seems more like a liability. (The package libbeagle1 can't be remove without removing most of GNOME so I keep that one.)
