I apologigize for the question, as it sounds silly. But I am forced to ask this question, as I didn't find it's answer anywhere.

I have about 3 sites on WordPress, and 2 are working absolutely fine. But the 3rd one have some problem with links.

I mean, If I go to All Plugins page, and click on Activate or Deactivate or Delete, then nothing happens.

However if I copy the URL by mouse right clicking (and copying url), and visit after pasting it in browser, then it works properly.

I have WordPress 3.5.1 with theme twenty twelve on all sites. I have also tried changing theme and removing all plugins, but still the problem exists.

Can someone knows the resolution of this issue.

"clicking on Activate or Deactivate or Delete" - is that using the bulk actions or on a single plugin? Are there javascript errors showing in your browsers error console? Do you have WP_DEBUG turned on, and if so, what does it report? – Johannes Pille Mar 30 '13 at 18:40
I apologize, how can I enable WP_DEBUG – user1547766 Mar 30 '13 at 18:46

Steps you can take to resolve this issue:

  • Download Fresh Install of WordPress from Wordpress.org
  • Deactivate All Plugins
  • Deactivate Theme-Twenty Twelve and Try Activating some other Basic theme like Twenty Eleven
  • Disable Browser Ad-Blocker Add-ons (if any)

Hopefully your problem will get solved by taking the above steps.
