Hello,

I have a Macbook Pro running Sierra 10.12.2 and I am unsure if my problem is mac related or browser.

When I try and open a link to a photo slideshow it reloads the page instead and adds a #. (www.example.com/projects/ ---> www.example.com/projects/#)

However, this only happens when using Chrome and Firefox but Safari opens them just fine. So is there a mac setting that allows Safari to open the pop-up or should I go and individually contact each browser company?

First, were you having this issue with any prior version of the Mac OS?

Secondly, the most current versions of those browsers are:

Google Chrome - Version 57.0.2987.110

Firefox - V 52.0.1

Third, there is amore recent version of Sierra, OS 10.12.3, which was released a couple of months ago. You can get the OS 10.12.3 Combo Updater from here:

Hopefully, though, you are making backups to an external device, along with performing disk cleanup/maintenance/repairs.

Thank you very much for taking the time to answer. I didn't have this problem at all a couple months ago and I was still on sierra then.

Also I know I am updated on the browsers but was unaware of the sierra update, which I will download. I am trying to do maintanance but still need that external back-up. Again, though, thank you for the reply.

I don't know if updating to OS 10.12.3 will resolve your issue, but disk cleanup/maintenance/repairs, and backups, are really important.
