Re: Shift Enter: New Browser Window Doesn't Always Work

I also have this problem with jaws 12 with my local Fort Wayne newspaper
site. I assume it is more a website problem than a jaws problem since it is
only on that site.

It helps to arrow up or down and back to the link I want to help establish

Subject: Shift Enter: New Browser Window Doesn't Always Work

Hey guys. I'm running jaws 11 on windows xp. When I'm on the net and try to
use the shift+enter command to open a new browser window, it works, but it
also activates the link in the window I just left. This, obviously,
completely negates the point for me to open a new window in the first place.
It only happens sometimes, though, and not all.

The site I'm having trouble with is
In the forums. If I click on a thread title using shift+enter, the link
activates in both windows. It didn't always do this, which is why I'm
writing here. Any of you have any suggestions? I've tried restarting jaws,
restarting my computer, running scans, etc. Nothing's working. Any help
would be greatly appreciated. I really do need this command.
