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!
