I have a problem with one of the links in a column of my XsltListViewWebpart. It's working perfectly fine in Firefox, but when I click it in IE, nothing happens.

The code for the link is:

<a onclick="EditLink2(this,82);return false;" href="{concat('/folder1/folder2/Page.aspx?RootFolder=',$thisNode/@FileRef.urlencode,'&amp;SourceID=',$thisNode/@ID)}"><xsl:value-of select="$thisNode/@FileLeafRef" /></a>

Is there a reason why IE refuses to understand this link? I'm puzzled.

edit: I just discovered it only works in IE when I right click the link and select open, or open in new tab. For some reason left click doesn't work.

Thank you very much for your suggestions.

The default popup blocker in IE was creating problems. I added an exception for the website in its settings and the problem is now solved.
