All links open blank tab

Post#1 » Fri Aug 01, 2014 6:47 pm

ACER ICONIA W510
WINDOWS 8.1
FIREFOX 31.0


Hey there,
been using ICE for years, no issues (hooray)
But in the last month I can't open any links at all, just opens a blank tab with the about:blank thing in the url bar. If i try and copy and paste the link it says javascriptvoid.

It did this a while ago but it usually fixed itself after a couple of refreshes and/or cache clears. This time Ive cleaned my cache out multiple times, unstalled and updated my java and checked all my scripts and plugins, everythings up to date- in fact i think most of it is unchanged from when it was working! Reckon it happened after the Firefox update to 30.0 but nobody else seems to be having issues so if ive missed anything obvious, or if you guys have any tips to get this going again I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks ice gurus, keep it up

I have been having the same problem on my Surface Pro 3. I noticed another post indicating this same issue on another Windows 8.1 device.

Would love to get an answer to this.

Thanks

Cleared EVERYTHING in chrome on your recomendation and still no luck. Regardless of source. Tab is labelled "untitled" loading prompt states void.

It still sounds like an LSO... These are Hidden Cookies. On FF you need a device called Better Privacy to clear them as they are not usually in the regular cache. Try this.

I used to be a strong advocate of Better Privacy, but have dropped that add-on in favor of Self Destructing Cookies: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/self-destructing-cookies/
