I use DW.
My wife loves Front Page and its descendants.
On this page of her site: http://darrowby.com/planned.htm there are links to other pages at the bottom. On my computer I can only see the blue graphic dots, not the links.
Do you know why?
Thanks. Sure hope my account, after a couple years, is still set up for "instant notification."
I'm not sure you'll get an answer because Front Page isn't something most people use as this is a Dreamweaver forum. I can see you have used java applets for the links so it's most likely something to do with that. What though I don't know because I don't know anyone or come across any well constructed website which would use such a method.
I think java is on. I use one thing on my sites, for encrypting e-mail addresses, and I can see those okay. If there's a way to test that?
I repeat that I do not myself use Front Page, or Expression Web. I don't understand them, and I object to their principle, which seems to be that we'll make a WYSIWYG so you don't have to learn code, and then make everything so proprietary that learning all the rules is at least as hard as learning code and also not good for anything else;
and HTML rarely helps me fix anything that seems to be a problem on my wife's site.
And, yes, they use java for all sorts of unnecessary things, like links.
And I figured it was a java-related problem.
Wondering if anyone can explain why I cannot see the links in Firefox.
I don't have enough feedback to know if it's a problem experienced by other viewers of the site, but we mostly hear how beautiful the dogs are, not what a problem the site is.
Perhaps there's a java forum out there?
New observation: I can see the links in IE. Is that a clue?
Newer observation: FF has turned off auto java, but you can reactivate it manually. That's the fix.
Thanks for your remarks.

Go here and see what it says.
If you don't have java or the web plugin installed it will say this:
"No working Java was detected on your system.
Install Java by clicking the button below."
But I would not suggest installing it since it is known to have severe security flaws.
If you have the latest Firefox (18.0 or 18.1), it comes with Java disabled for security reasons.
You can read more about it below:
No Java = no Java Applets. Which brings up a more serious question, why is your wife using Java for menus? Plain old text links would be more web friendly.
