Rich Text Editor - Add Link Functionality Not Working In IE Or Firefox When Creating Announcements (Doc ID 1943455.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.8.4 and later
Oracle JDeveloper - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The Announcements task flow is used in WebCenter Portal.
While creating or editing an announcement,  the link functionality to add URLs is not working in Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers.
The behaviour seen is that a link can be added using the standard Add Link icon , but it is not displayed.
The same functionality is working in Google Chrome.


The issue can also be demonstrated on this ADF demo site here:

http://jdevadf.oracle.com/adf-richclient-demo/faces/components/richTextEditor.jspx

These are the steps to reproduce the problem, either in Announcements or in the direct Rich Text Editor:

Select the 'Add Link' Icon from the toolbar.
In the 'Please specify the URL' box, enter this URL: http://www.oracle.com/.
There are no errors, but the link is not displayed.
