Hey folks,

Hope everyone is doing well.

The title pretty much sums it up. When I right click on a link to select "open link in new tab" (or other selection), the menu seems to open just beneath the cursor causing an instantaneous selection (usually opens a new tab). I've tried using the browser without any extensions and the problem keeps occurring (just happened now when I tried to select the correct spelling for occurring).

This only seems to happen with Firefox.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

On Windows 10, there is a gap of a few pixels between the mouse pointer position and the edge of the menu, so it's not possible to click the first menu item without moving the mouse. I can't test on Mac.

I don't see reports like this very often, so I can't recall whether there is a known issue with a setting, screen resolution, mouse driver, etc., that could explain it.

Hey jscher2000,

Yeah, it's happening on a mac and only on Firefox. It was an issue on previous versions of Firefox as well. Here's a screen capture that highlights what I'm referring to. In this case it did not open the link.

That's not good. If you don't get a solution here, you might also check on this subreddit:
