Windows not opening in browser

  cymmer 12:11 02 Dec 2003

As a relative novice in computing,I have a problem with browser windows.
I go to a site which tells me the information will open in a separate window,this window then tries to open,it opens for a fraction of a second,then closes again.
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong and help with this problem.

Do you have some sort of popup stopper installed?

Give some details of your browser - if ie6 you can try a repair.

Have you tried holding down the ctrl key when clicking on the site. If it works then you have probably got a popup stopper running especially if you have Google installed.

if it is a pop up stopper prob, i suggest you configure it to play a sound when blocking a page that will resolve any further issues.

Is the new window by any chance opening then disappearing behind the main window? Try again and when the new window opens, minimise your main window to the taskbar, you may see the new one on screen. j.
