When using the Find Place functionality in the GIS Portal Toolkit's (GPT) Map Viewer, the Find Place returns results but when a result is clicked, the Map Viewer does not zoom in on the selected location or reload. This problem occurs in Firefox.
The Find Place functionality in the MapViewer uses the Find Place functionality of the Portal application. Due to more stringent cross-browser scripting rules in Firefox, the browser may not be allowing the Portal's Find Place functionality to interact with the Map Viewer if the placefinder_url variable in the ArcExplorerWeb.properties file (located at <TOMCAT DIR>\webapps\arcexplorer\WEB-INF\classes) is set incorrectly.
Verify that the placefinder_url variable is pointing to a URL that matches the exact URL with which the Portal itself is launched.
