    Hi all. New to HubPages and am having diff with the link suggestion feature. When I click on a highlighted word, nothing happens. I tried 'Shift + refresh page' as was suggested somewhere on the site but to no avail.

    Any suggestions? I am set to publish my first fabulous hub...!

    You may have better luck with some browsers than others, Firefox and Google Chrome tend to work best on HubPages.

      Thanks. I'm using Firefox and I'll give it another try.

      The other way, of course, is to manually simulate the Link Suggestion feature...requiring the browsing of Hubpages for relevant links...more time-consuming but not a bad thing.

    Hmm.. I've not had that problem, no matter what browser I'm on.

    Interestingly, both Hub Pages and another site at which I write both say they are "optimized" for Firefox...and said browser was touted as being 'more stable.'

    I have not found that to be the case.  I've had far more freeze-ups with Firefox than with IE 8, which is my default browser.  I can have 8 to 11 tabs open in IE 8 before it starts to get twitchy; not so with Firefox--or Google Chrome, for that matter.  Neither of them care to deal with more than about 5 tabs open.

    In spite of the "optimized for Firefox" claims, I've not had any problems at all using IE.

    Best wishes to all.

      DzyMsLizzy, thanks. I'll try the Link Suggestion tool agn but I'm ready to explore Hbpgs to get relevant links. Good way to make friends too, I guess.

        I use Firefox and sometimes the Suggested Links is just slow. May need to wait longer at times for it to open suggestions.
