      Sometimes the glossary-entry opens in a java-script-window (yui-window), and sometimes the entry open in a link.
      A solutions:
      In administration /Plugins /Filters /Common filter settings edit the field "Text cache lifetime" Choose "No"
      Now your Server filter every page and does not use the text-cache. The page will always open in a java-script-window.
      The disadvantage: The server needs more time to produce the page.
      Background:
      Whenever Moodle use the text from the text cache, it does not insert in the header the following line:
      Y.use("moodle-mod_glossary-autolinker",function() {M.mod_glossary.init_filter_autolinking(

      {"courseid":"6"}

      );})
      Result: the javascript-window does not work.
      Without this line the Links do not open in inline-windows.

      Replication instructions:

      • create new global glossary and create a new word
      • enable filter & auto-linking somewhere. e.g. in a course
      • enter this course
      • the word is highlighted as a glossary item but when you click on it, you'll be redirected to the page of that item (mod/glossary/showentry.php?courseid=1&eid=2&displayformat=dictionary e.g.) instead of a popup window
      • this does not happen if you check /Plugins /Filters /Common filter settings edit the field "Text cache lifetime" and choose "No"
