Many links don't work in broser based help pages

Recommended Posts

A lot of links (ie. HTML hyperlinks) don't work in the help files.

Some do some don't. I assume blue underlined text is a link as it always has been since the dawn of HTML.

Do other people experience this? I use Firefox as my browser. Is this the problem?

Since a search of the boards reveals nothing I feel very alone with this annoying bug.

Firefox use to be an (documented) issue with online help, but with Firefox on Vista I have not noticed any issues for ages so don't know if a SP fixed it, upgrading to 2009 did or a change in Firefox. Mind you, I don't use online help very often ;)

Make sure that you have the latest service pack for 2008.

My understanding is that the early versions of 2008 had major issues on the Mac.

I have given up completely on using links in the provided HTML help pages. They just don't work. Not on Firefox, not on Safari, not at all.

Maybe somebody should write a help document for the help pages. :grin:

I find lots don't work in/on Opera.

I have given up on using links in the help if they don't work first time.
