Warning about page opening in a pop-up [Flex UI]

Reviewed May 4, 2021

Flex UI is available to all UBCMS users now. Learn more.

The Issue

When using the keyboard shortcut to Edit a page in Flex UI, some authors are warned about the page opening in a pop-up window. (This does not occur when clicking the Edit button.)

The popup blockers in some browsers (e.g. Firefox) treat keystrokes differently from clicks. While a click will open a new tab, a keystroke will prompt the user for popup feedback.

Workaround

This is expected behavior of the browser not a Flex UI issue.  Users should select 'Allow popups for ubcms-author.buffalo.edu' from the yellow bar if they intend to use shortcuts in that browser.
