Why won't the preview button open in a new window anymore?

  1. I'm at my dashboard editing a new post. When I push the preview button, the preview used to open in a new window. Now it opens in the same window. Then I can't see the dashboard at the same time. Thanks~!

    The blog I need help with is theogrossfamily.wordpress.com.

  2. Please be sure the browser box for allowing 3rd party cookies is enabled. http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

  3. It already is enabled. The preview has always opened in another window until today. I haven't changed any of my settings. Why would this change?

  4. Please try some troubleshooting for us. If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    If you are, please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If you are not successful let us know which browser (and version of it) you’re using and post any error reports you get.

  5. Thank you for such fast support. I updated Firefox and it appears to be working again.

  6. Hooray! That's terrific news. Best wishes for happy blogging.
