Why do anchors do work in confluence only work using Safari and not e.g. with Firewfox

I did create a page with the toc-macro at the top and some headings to be listet. On a Mac I can use Safari to jump to the headings by clicking into the toc, but it does not work using Firefox, Chrome, or even with Paralles using Firefox etc. but there it works with Safari too - on a PC its all fine.

Any Idea?

Seems to work now using Confluence 5.2.5 on Firefox 25 and Safari 7.0

Hi Klaus,

That's probably a browser issue, are you using browser that are supported by Atlassian?

If so, maybe you should create a ticket here : https://jira.atlassian.com ?

Best regards,

Thanks, but this is not a browser issue it came up with confluence 5.0 – its the way confluence handles headings and anchors and whether or not it is ascii code or not – there are a number of issues existing already - are you using a Mac or a PC?

We are about to upgrade to Conf. 5.2.5 to check out whether or not that helps.

My workplace is on Confluence 5.1.5 and the only place I can get same-page anchors to work is in the latest version of Chrome. Doesn't work in Firefox 25, doesn't work in IE 10. To top things off if you try and do it manually via the source the HTML gets stripped when you save, so there's really no way around it.

It does work on Mac OSX Maverics using Safari too
