Unable to open records
For the past couple of weeks when I click on link to a file (looks like a page ) when it tries to open it just bounces in and out and never opens. This has just been a recent problem. If I click on just the individual that will open, but not the ones in the tree mode or the page mode. Any help apprecuated.
Are able tp provide an example of where this is happening please - a URL?0
It would help if you can share a specific example. A URL, if it's a record, or the PID, if the record is attached to a profile.
Also, are you using the "old" search or the "new/beta" search?0
Not sure which version I'm using. I don't know where to check for that. Then I got this message when trying to get the URL for you

This is the URL0
That particular record https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VH4B-9QP has no image you can view from home. Wisconsin has very strict controls about what is permitted online.
Even if there was an image, it's only an index reference, with very little detail. You should be able to obtain a record with better detail - this URL https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTMQ-3XS - using the FHL Lookup Service.
Link to the blog article describing the service https://www.familysearch.org/blog/en/library-lookup-service-fhl/

I usually receive the records I have requested in 2 to 3 business days.
Hope this helps.1
Hello @Judith Schweitzer,
It looks like the page you referenced is not working for you. I was able to look at it and it seems to be working for me on Fire Fox. Here are some ideas you can try:
If you have problems when using one of the supported browsers
- Refresh the page you are viewing. For Windows, press the control (Ctrl) and F5 keys at the same time. For a Mac, press Apple+R or Cmd+R.
- Delete the browser history to remove old copies of that page stored on your computer.
- Use a different supported browser.
Steps (website) to clear cookies on FamilySearch

Hello @Judith Schweitzer
Your problem sounds more like a "computer" issue, which may or may not be resolved by clearing temporary files/cache, resetting FamilySearch cookies and/or switching browsers.
In case you are interested, here is the wiki article about this particular record collection:
Hope this helps out in some way.0
@MNuttall When I have tried to use the Beta search, I experienced the bouncing that Judith mentioned, and the record or extract never appears. That's why I asked which search she was using.
I have no problem using the production search version, whether it is the old or the new, as I get switched back and forth.0
