Any way for Textile help to pop-up as before?

The new 4.0.4 installed flawlessly, thanks!

One question: In the Textile help area in the Articles Write page, when I click on a “?” link, the help fragment no longer pop’s up in a small window. Instead it causes a new browser window to appear with the help content.

I’d prefer the old behavior, if possible. Is there an admin setting or something of the sort to go back to the old style?

I’m using Firefox 2.0rc3 and help pops up in a small window.

What browser are you using?

Re: Any way for Textile help to pop-up as before?

I’m using the same .. 2.0, I believe rc3:
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O;
en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0

I was using the same browser yesterday, before the upgrade to 4.0.4, and the help popped up in a small window then. But now it uses a new tab instead.

Thanks for the response, btw.

Did you change your preferences on the way ? The default Fx prefs should allow that pop up to come up as a pop up.
Type ‘about:config’ in the url bar (without quotes), then in the text field (filter): ‘browser.link’
It should returns 3 prefs.

  • browser.link.open_newwindow should be set to 3
  • browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction should to be set to 2

If any of them is bold (user set), control click and chose ‘reset’.

Those are my settings, also you might try clearing your cache and restarting Firefox.

‘Cuz the old .js file was cached maybe ?
(although I never had a problem with that)
