Question

Can't Vote Anymore

by jibberyerkibber / April 15, 2013 10:06 PM PDT

Now when I try to take an online poll in Firefox, whenever I click a choice and then hover my cursor over VOTE NOW, a message come up that says JAVASCRIPT: VOID (0). Clicking VOTE NOW does nothing. If I use IE, when I simply go to the site that has the poll, a message comes up that says IE has encountered a problem and needs to close. My SETTINGS in Firefox say that java-script is ENABLED. Running Windows XP pro. Reboot doesn't help. Site I am trying to vote on is NHL.com. Oh what to do? Thanks!

Answer
The "JAVASCRIPT: VOID (0)" Is Correct For That Site

When I visit the website you listed, then scroll to the lower right portion of that page, there is a "Vote Now" button.. Hovering over the button shows the "" listing for me as well. IF I then select a player to vote for, then click on the "Vote Now" button, it works and a vote ranking screen appears.. So, here, the "Vote Now" button works in both Firefox 20.0.1 and IE 8.

I do notice that clicking on the "Vote Now" button causes a popup window to attempt to load.. If you've got a popup blocker enabled on those browsers, it could be causing your issue.

Just a thought.. Have you uninstalled Java from your computer? Although "javascript" and "java" are two different things, sometimes the button type you've shown will open a java applet..

Hope this helps.
