View Full Version : jQuery Facebox overlay closes automatically when new window opened in Safari

Hi all,

I have an issue with the jQuery plugin Facebox on Safari.

When I click a link the facebox overlay is shown and the 'download file' dialogue box is shown. However, only on Safari does the facebox overlay get closed automatically. How can this be stopped? Does Safari do a window.open when you download a file?

On IE/FF this works fine, in the way that when you click the link the Facebox overlay displays and doesn't automatically close when the 'download file' dialogue box is shown.


Sorry, I don't have a link to share, but if anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated.

Apologies, ignore this one. This was caused by a bug in my code and NOT a Safari specific issue.
