Modals Stop Working When Upgrading to 2.5.0
From Joomla! Documentation
The "J2.5" namespace is a namespace scheduled to be archived. This page contains information for a Joomla! version which is no longer supported. It exists only as a historical reference, it will not be improved and its content may be incomplete and/or contain broken links.
When upgrading from 1.7.3 to 2.5.0, modal "pop-ups" may stop working and be displayed full-page (as seen below) with the Save, Save and Close, and Cancel buttons unresponsive.
This issue is caused by changes to the Administrative template. The fix is to clear your browser's cache. For specific instructions on how to do this, please see:
