When I click on NEWS headline, it does not open, just refreshes Firefox
I use Firefox 40.0.3 and Google News is my homepage. I was opening the NEWS article in a new tab by clicking on it, but Starting today, when I click on NEWS headline it does not open, just refreshes Firefox. I can open by right clicking and then selecting, open in a new tab

Much time has passed since you posted, but if this is still an issue, here is a general suggestion:
When you have a problem with one particular site, a good "first thing to try" is clearing your Firefox cache and deleting your saved cookies for the site.
(1) Bypass Firefox's Cache
Use Ctrl+Shift+r to reload the page fresh from the server.
Alternately, you also can clear Firefox's cache completely using:
"3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Options > Advanced
On the Network mini-tab > Cached Web Content : "Clear Now"
If you have a large hard drive, this might take a few minutes.
(2) Remove the site's cookies (save any pending work first). While viewing a page on the site, try either:
- right-click and choose View Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"
- (menu bar) Tools > Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"
- click the padlock or globe icon in the address bar > More Information > "View Cookies"
In the dialog that opens, you can remove the site's cookies individually.
Then try reloading the page. Does that help?
