I am confused. Not that that is anything new, but I have had a customized
but functional version of OEMR running for a few years now. It has survived several
version upgrades up to 4.2.2 without problems, although I have had to modify
some of my customizations from time to time. The upgrade to 5.0.0 and subsequent
Patch 1 are stumping me however. I have OEMR installed on an Ubuntu Linux
16.04 LTS server. My workstations are a variety of Windows and Mac machines,
although I do most of my experimentation on my Mac with with a similar Linux virtual
machine (Parallels) running on it. In any event, I though that everything was running
fine after the upgrade and patch but almost immediately my staff (running Windows 7 and accessing OEMR through a Firefox browser) noted that when creating a new patient the
“Create New Patient” button at the bottom of the data entry page wouldn’t work (it
appears to click but nothing happens - the page doesn’t close and no data is saved).
I immediately reverted to my old functional copy of 4.2.2 and began experimenting.
What I have discovered follows.
After duplicating the upgraded 5.0.0 installation on my testbed virtual server it
appears that when accessing it from my Mac via Firefox the create new patient
functionality remains inoperative. Notwithstanding this, if I access OEMR through
either Safari or Chrome everything appears to work fine (so it would appear that the
problem may not even be on the server side).
When accessing the EMR from a Windows machine, I can create patients in both
Firefox and Chrome, however Internet Explorer doesn’t appear to work, failing in
essentially the same fashion that Firefox does on my Mac.
Any ideas? It wouldn’t kill me to change all the machines over to using Chrome
but I don’t necessarily want to end up with all my eggs in one basket. What if that
