Table cell anchors don't seem to work

I created 57 table cell anchors and have tried to link them from various pages in one space and it doesn't work. The link goes to a random location on the page but not to the correct table cell. Any suggestions?

Some cells they do but some they don't for me.

n> That erratic behaviour for anchor links is not really useful. I've opened a JIRA ticket and am waiting for a reply.

What version of Confluence are you using? I am on 5.4.4 and anchors don't appear to have rendered in the HTML if they are deep in tables for me. Some cells they do but some they don't for me.

I reccomend you right click on your page and press Inspect. Let us know what the case is.

You should post the JIRA ticket. Can you use Headings instead? They seem to work just fine. We might be able to do some magic here.

Is this issue with anchors to reference cells on tables already solved? I am using Confluence 5.6.3 and I still cannot link within the same page to a certain cell of a table inside that page. Thanks,

I've just noticed that some users mentioned firefox, safari or internet explorer...so I tried with Firefox and the reference works. With Internet Explorer it does not work to reference within a table.

Same problem in Confluence v5.9.6:                                                                                

Added anchor in table cell. When referencing it with a link from a different page, the link takes me to the top of the page where the table containing the anchor is -- but not to the anchor itself.
