Support » Fixing WordPress » Problem with Edge, IE and Chrome…but not Firefox

  • Recently Edge, IE, and Chrome are causing a problem when I try to set up a link on a page. Firefox works perfectly.

    The problem: When I paste the link URL in the space provided and attempt to click on “Apply”, the whole box (URL, Apply, Gear) seems to flash and it’s very difficult to find the spot on the screen where clicking the mouse will cause the URL to be applied. Same goes when trying to get to the Link Options (to set “Open in New Window”.

    I deactivated all plugins, tried a different theme (2017), etc but nothing helped.

    As I said it works perfectly with Firefox.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Many thanks.

  • Hi planeo8,

    Can you provide your website URL? or can you share the screenshot of the error?

    URL is I set up a page called Sandbox for testing.

    I don’t see a way to include a screenshot here

    The problem is that when I attempt to add a link, I have difficulty clicking the Apply button on the Link box. I have to hunt around for the right spot to get the “Apply” to show before I can click on it. While I am doing this, the link box (don’t know its proper name) is flashing. Finally after repeated tries, the word Apply is there and I can click it. The exact same problem occurs when I try to click on the Gear to get to Link Options.

    I use the 2012 on another site and have no problems. Might the iteration of WordPress been corrupted? This started a few weeks ago.
