again on add tab/remove tab

Hi All,
I have encountered some issues in the add/remove tabs in the main screen.

My setup is SuiteCRM 7.1.1, php 5.3.3 + apache + MySQL 5.1.73

I had some problem in adding more tabs to the home screen (both using a normal user and a superadmin).
I finally discovered that I can add a tab only if I press the enter button instread of clicking on the ok button on the dialog box whoa ask me the tab name and layout.

The second problem is on the tab removal.
even if I press the ok button on the confirmation dialog the tabs still remains.
I have thought to try the same trick, but there is no place to keep the focus on except for the ok button, so I’m now not able to remove the tabs I created.

I have already tried with the quick repair and with the folder permissions…

hope this helps


Hi Marco,

Do you get any JavaScript errors when you click on the ok button? To show these, press Ctrl+Shift+K in firefox or Ctrl+Shift+J in Chrome. Refresh the page and follow the steps to add the tabs, note if there are any errors.



Hi Will,
I have just made the test but I got NO JS errors; just a warning (Attr.specified is deprecated. Its value is always true)

While trying to find a solution I red the note about the adblock on chrome. I tried to disable it, but it still does’n work.

If it could help, I have noticed that if I try to remove a tab as soon as I log on to suiteCRM, it works! then I am not able to remove any other tab until I logoff and logon again…


I don’t see any errors in console but I do get a caution on the network tab (only visible if you “Preserve log”) that shows this:

Request URL:http://domain/index.php?module=Home&action=AddDashboardPages

Not trying to hijack this just giving additional information as I am experiencing exactly the same behavior.

Please see the solution I have posted at:


It worked for me!

I only had to modify the RemoveDashboardPages.php to add the id=‘removepageform’ to the form

Thanks a lot!
