No longer able to open many links on websites while using Firefox

I am using an iMac running OSX 10.12.6. Firefox version 82.0.2.

For the last couple of weeks I have found that I am often unable to open many links on websites while using Firefox. I click on the link and nothing happens. If I hover over the link, I will see a URL in the bottom left of the page.

I have not found any particular pattern for what links work/don't work, it seems to be pretty random.

I suspect this is something simple that I just am not aware of. I'd really appreciate any ideas to get Firefox working correctly again. Currently I am being forced to use Chrome on many of my usual sites where Firefox will not work.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
