This is the first time I am seeing this behavior. I created a view "My Test" in the document library. The default view is "Active". After creating a very simple view (none of the stuff checked or filter or group) when I try to toggle to the new view it automatically shows the default view and completely ignores the new view (although in the url is has /forms/My Test.aspx). Please suggest what could be wrong. I spent 2 hours and couldn't figure this out. VERY STRANGE......
Can you open your new view URL while appending
?contents=1 at the end? For example:
When you do it, can you see any suspicious script webparts? or Content Editor Webparts? If you do - simply remove them. Or at least close them. Chances are all your new views have some kind of a script webpart injected by default.
