just to follow up with more of my investigation of this weird behavior… this is the anchor as rendered in firefox and only in firefox… opera is fine.
<a name="anchor" href="https://twitter.com/=====goo" target="_pg_blank"><img src="images/twitter.ico" class="soci" style="display: none !important;" hidden=""></a>
notice the inline style, !important, hidden and the target… these were ALL added at render.
in PG i left the target input box empty, as i do with many anchors, and none of them add this PG specific text… just this one. This is why i suppect PG doing this somehow, but only in FF.
and to make it more weird, it only does this when the .ico included in the label has the twitter logo… it doesn’t even matter what the file name or format is… if it has the twitter logo, it does this.
if it’s just some random pic or icon it renders as you would expect, no problems at all
WTF is going on here?
