[Solved] Light fault in the forum

Hi,
It seems that in the post where there are macro codes does not work "select all" because clicking there sends us to the top of the page; will I be seeing correctly?
Thank you

Can you be more specific regarding the forum section where you are encountering this problem?
I did a quick check in the following areas, and found that the Select All option, located above the actual code, works correctly.
1) Board index ‹ Customizing and Extending ‹ Code Snippets
2) Board index ‹ Customizing and Extending ‹ Macros and UNO API

In this post for example
https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/v ... 0&t=88053#

Where there are macro codes when you click there "SELECT ALL" it sends me to the top of the page instead of selecting the code
Will it only be on Windows?

Confirmed in the named forum - I haven't checked any others.

Workaround: if you click Expand All, the window opens to the full extend of the macro, then you can select by click and drag, and copy by Ctrl C.

I just checked the Select All for the post at https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=88053#p414498 and it worked properly for me,

Hi,
In the link that RusselB provides, he keeps sending me to the top of the page
In fact it does everywhere where macro codes appear

And yet it works as expected (highlighting the code) for me.

Indeed, it seems to be an known bug: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=2423571

Could be interesting to tell what browser is used.
On my Firefox 53 (xubuntu 17.04), it sends to the top of the page.

I'm using Google Chrome 57.0.2987.133 on Windows 7 Ultimate

Interesting. Google updated Chrome to 58.0.3029.110 and now I'm experiencing the same situation as originally posted.

Data point: on Firefox 53.0.2 (64 bit) I get the unexpected behaviour of move to top of page. However in Palemoon 27.0.2 (x64) and Vivaldi 1.7.735.46 (Stable channel) (64-bit) the code is highlighted as expected, as it does in IE 8 (don't ask!).

I don't have any other browsers to test.

I am using Firefox 53.0.2. I have no memory of this problem in the past, but may have used Expand All and selected text instinctively.

On Windows 10:
With Firefox 52 it works, Firefox 53 doesn't.
With Microsoft browsers (IE and Edge) it works, with Chrome 58 it doesn't.
Opera v. 45 is also "no go".

Seems to be a change in javascript function calling. Changing permissions to "allow everything" doesn't work.

The phpBB forum responses seem to indicate that using different style schemes may help. Different coding for the same functionality?
