It will be better if you can share corresponding HTML? a link to the site where we can see the issue?

executor.executeScript(passBack(v[1], v2[1]).click()”);

this is a wrong statement. The reason is that javascript:passBack(v[1], v2[1] is a function call where v[1], v2[1] will have runtime values.

I would suggest you can find the element using findElementByLinkText method. You also mentioned its a link in a new window. I am wondering if the new window is an alert. If its an alert you will have to switch to alert before trying to access the element.
