Not Working? Quick Troubleshooting
If this tool isn’t working then it’s likely that one of two things are happening:
- 1) You have a pop-up blocker enabled on this page or
- 2) Your browser is limiting the number of pages that can be opened at one time.
Before we get too serious, humor us and try holding down the CTRL key (Command for you Mac folks out there) when clicking the ‘Open Links’ button. No luck? It’s probably a pop-up blocker!
Disable Your Pop-up Blocker for This Page:
Click on “Tools” in the top menu (if the top menu isn’t displaying anywhere you may need to right click the blank space above the address bar and make sure that “Menu” has a check mark next to it) , then move the cursor over the menu option for “Pop-up Blocker”, then click on “Pop-up Blocker Settings.” Type ‘orangefox.com’ (no quotations) in the “Address of website to allow” field and press the “Add” button and close!
If you’re using Chrome take a peek at the search/address bar (specifically called the “omnibox” in Chrome). On the right end of the omnibox there is a small icon with a red ‘X’ on it. Simply click on this icon and select “Always allow popups from www.orangefox.com” and click done.
Click on “Tools” in the top menu (if the top menu isn’t displaying you may need to right click the blank space above the address bar and make sure that “Menu” has a check mark next to it), then click on “Options”, then select the “Content” tab. At the top there should be a checkbox with the description “Block pop-up windows.” Click the button at the opposite end that says “Exceptions”, then type ‘www.orangefox.com’ (no quotations) and press the “Allow” button. Close this window then click “OK.”
Opening Multiple URLs Slows Down My Computer
This is expected. You may need to bulk open URLs in smaller batches if your system is slowing down too much. To find a good threshold for your computer it may be helpful to open up Task Manager (for PC) or Activity Monitor (for Mac). Task Manager (PC) can be opened by pressing CTRL + ALT + DELETE at the same time then clicking on “Task Manager” and selecting the “Performance” tab. Activity Monitor (Mac) is generally in Applications > Utilities > All Processes.
