New window (hotspot) opening in bkg.

by Marv » Tue Nov 16, 2010 1:06 am

I got the following msg from a user on one of my panos (
He is the only person that has come fwd to me with this problem. I thought this ran ok on "Safari" on a clients machine but I do not have "Safari" myself so I can not trouble shoot this issue.

NOTE: He is referring to any Web link, or Image link. If you click on the opening hotspot link... you will go in the Museum tent which he is referring too. The "?" Link he is referring to is just to the right of the opening view just above the yellow water cooler.

Does anyone know what's going on here.
Thanks, Marv.

"I use Safari (Mac) browser. I open the Panorama mammoth program in Safari. If I do not use full screen while the Panorama is on, then my click on the question mark ("?") (Link spot) works just fine. A new screen opens in front and I can read the Owner info.
However, if I click on the Panaorama button to make if full screen (22 inches), then the question mark activates the Link page behind the full screen, and I am not aware it's hiding.
I have a fast fiber optics connection with Charter. I have tons of ram and hard drive and do 3d graphics with FormZ.
My Safari always opens a new window in front of the current window.
The problem only occurs when using the Pano button to go full screen. Then a new Safari new page opens behind the full Pano, in fear and trembling, I suppose."

It does not behave as he describes with Safari running on Windows XP/32.

See screenshot sequence below.

Perhaps Safari on the Mac behaves differently (but then I feel that Mac users have only themselves to blame ;)).
