OK I am stumped. I have some simple CSS links on a page I am developing and in IE 7 on Windows, after I visit the link (target is _blank) and come back to the original window, the link is gone until I click elsewhere on the page. If I remove the target="_blank" the link works. But I want it to pop up in a new window... any solutions?

OK It disappears no matter what

I thought taking out the target="_blank" fixed it but I was looking in my Firefox window (duh) so the link disappears if I have a plain link or not!

Here is the page:

for example click the first "slide" link, then hit the back button - link is gone!

here is the stylesheet:

thanks in advance

You have this: #navmenu

You have this:

#navmenu a:hover, a:active {
  color: #fff;
  }

The a:active is overriding previous a:active rules. What you meant to do is:
#navmenu a:hover, #navmenu a:active {
  color: #fff;
  }

cheers,

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

Whoops I can see how that

Whoops I can see how that could cause problems - however I fixed it and I'm still getting the same thing (yes I emptied the cache) But I'll comb through all the links, you're right it must e the navmenu white link over-riding the body links somehow...

Well I just deleted ALL of my active link references and now it works fine, and I don't miss the a links. So, problem solved for now - thanks!!
