Okay, I'm having what seems to be some Java problems. I can play Java games with ease but I've noticed certain Javascript pop ups don't work. I can't even open them by right clicking + open in new window. Some of them are on flash sites so I can't copy the URL either. It's somewhat frustrating. On yahoo I cant use the top tab dropdown menus nor can I even compose a message OR switch over to plain view to write one. I've contacted support and Yahoo support but no real response yet. This just started a few days ago. Around the time I installed McAfee Internet Security.

Any ideas? I appreciate it. Thank you.

I had a similar problem for about 6 months now. If I pointed at a javscript link I could see the code in the bottom left of the page (hyperlink) but nothing would happen when I clicked it. I remember it starting after trying to make my computer "more secure". I read your post last week and decided it wasn't just my computer so started to have a play. I think I have fixed it now as am able to get onto one particular web page that I had difficulties with before. This is what I did (I have Norton personal firewall): Open Norton personal firewall, click on "options" and select "personal firewall", click on "advanced options", then click the "web" tab, then the "active content" tab, in the "script" section I changed it to "allow all script to execute" and now it works!

Good luck
