And if it is a popup blocker problem try hitting shift-enter on the links that 
won't open and see if that helps.

Hi Jim,
Once I had a similar problem, but in my case only certain links would not open. 
 The conclusion was that the pop-up blocker would not allow links to execute 
that had a pop-up associated to open.  Check enter tools alt+to and arrow down 
to the pop-up blocker and disable it and then try to see if the links will 
Hope that works.

  Hello there,


  I'm hoping I could get some help with a computer problem I've begun having 
over the past month or so.  Just so you know, I am still running JFW 5.1 on my 
computer, and it was working wonderfully for quite some time.  However, I'm 
wondering if it's not an Internet Explorer problem rather than JAWS.


  Lately, I've gone to different web sites and have begun having problems 
accessing links using the "Enter" or the "Space Bar."  I've generally always 
been able to access links in this way, but now what happens is that it tries 
going there but rather than going to the link, it gives me a different kind of 
loud click and then just stays where I left off, so it ends up looking like it 
didn't do anything or go anywhere and just stays there until you try clicking 
on another link.  Now, some of these links can be accessed by using my JAWS 
cursor and clicking the left mouse button key, but I don't want to have to keep 
doing that all the time.  I'm sure it has something to do with my computer 
because when I go to these websites on other computers, things seem to go 
normally, as expected.  I did try checking for the obvious viruses and spyware. 
 I also tried repairing JAWS thinking it could be an MSAA thing.  It's 
happening more with more lengths. Thanks again!
