Table of contents links not working in IE 9 after upgrading to Confluence 5.1.5

Using IE 9, the table of contents links are not working to move down the page for some items, but does work for other links. This all worked on Confluence 3.5.13 prior to the upgrade. However, when testing the same links with FF 23, they all work successfully. Anybody know what is happening and if there is a fix for it?

It appears that this issue for us has been solved in an update of Confluence. I just tested version 5.4.3 and the issue is resolved. The links are working correctly.

Hi Nori,

It might be a problem with the formatting that's behind the pages.

If you copy the entire page content into a new page does it fix the problem?

You could also install the source editor plugin for confluence and look at the page source directly to see if something is wrong :

Best regards,


Hi Peter,

When we copy the entire page content to a new pages the problem is fixed!
We hope it will fix the problem for Nori as well.

I'm glad it worked :)

Could you please vote up my answer?

Best regards,

We are experiencing the same problem. However opening the page in Firefox 24.0 does not display working table of contents links...

We are interested in a solution too as we use IE9 on all our machines.
