FF can't "find" some tabs sites without clicking several times , sometimes not even then. Started this in the last month or so... On https://www.myhealth.va.gov/mhv-portal-web/home I get the message that my browser is out of date and to update or use a different one. What I do get from the above site is a menu page that gives the same result when it loads any choices. TIA Dennis

Hi Dennis, your Firefox definitely is not out of date. Some sites level strange accusations if scripts are blocked, and sometimes scripts are blocked or disabled either by Tracking Protection or a content-blocking add-on.

I think your Troubleshoot Mode test would rule out the extensions.

You can turn off Tracking Protection for a site using the shield icon toward the left end of the address bar (it usually turns a bit purplish when content is blocked). Click the icon to learn more or make an exception. See: Enhanced Tracking Protection in Firefox for desktop.

Any difference?

More generally, are your mouse clicks not being recorded in the correct location? You could try a Sudoku puzzle or other small grid to see whether Firefox is reading the mouse position wrong.

Helpful?
