  • Resolved AA



    I have a weird situation occurring on one of our sites. Here are the circumstances…

    Only in Firefox & only on post pages, when I right click to bring up the window which allows me to view the page source, amongst other options, another window pops up instead.

    This window contains the following options:

    Select All
    Search Google for Author Erica:
    View Selection Source
    Inspect Element

    Also, when right clicking, an area of the page will highlight as if I wish to copy. If however, I right click at the very right or left edge of a post page, I then can bring up the typical window which includes “view page source”

    I have been trying to determine the cause to no avail. I am stumped. I also have another live site & a test blog with the same template, plugins & WP version, which is not experiencing the same problem. The url of the site in question is

    Any help would be appreciated.

    you havent articulated your problem very well so i dont have a clue what youre talking about

    so here:

    i can view your source fine in firefox. no other wiindows pop up.

    how about providing an actual page since you mention whatever your problem is, is specific to certain things.

    how about providing a browser name and a version.

    and youve checked in ALL other browsers for whatever your problem is? I doubt that.

    have you changed themes? does whatever is happening, still happen?

    if it does, disable plugins and remove stuff from the theme until you isolate the cause.




    Only in Firefox & only on post pages

    works fine on mac/firefox

    exactly. hence my questions.

    and then there’s this:

    I figured it out & determined the cause!

    Thanks viceng for trying.
