I am using the following code.

\newpage
\section*{Abstract}

\newpage
\tableofcontents

\newpage
\listoftables

\newpage
\listoffigures

Anybody know a quick fix for this?

Hi Suzu Welcome to TeX.SE! Code snippets are good, but a complete MWE would be even better- could you make one to help folks? :) – cmhughes Sep 28 '12 at 1:28

\tableofcontents

\listoftables

\listoffigures

If the hyperref package is going to be used, you might add \phantomsection to produce the right anchors for hyperlinks:

\newpage
\phantomsection
\tableofcontents

As a suggestion, instead of using "manual" names, you could use the macros containing the pre-defined names; so instead of

you could say

\phantomsection worked perfectly for my issues in \subsubsection of the index linking to page 1 instead of the correct page. Thanks very much! – Docconcoct Sep 28 '15 at 18:06

Now a day, mostly we prefer to the hyperlink. Thus if printing in the double side, which is usually a case for Thesis or reports.

So, the best command even removing the page number in the blank page:

\phantomsection
\tableofcontents  \raggedbottom \pagebreak \thispagestyle{empty}

\cleardoublepage  % \clearpage (if using single side)
\phantomsection
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{ List of Figures}  \raggedbottom \pagebreak \thispagestyle{empty}

\listoffigures  \raggedbottom \pagebreak \thispagestyle{empty}
\cleardoublepage  % \clearpage (if using single side)

\phantomsection
