Sometimes, after the last major Firefox upgrade, upon clicking on a link on webpages, immediately, the link moves to another location on the webpage without opening the link. I then have to move my mouse to "chase" the link and then when clicked on again, it does not move and the link opens.

I would like to have this issue fixed.

Is the link moving up and/or down? Then the web page is moving up/down. Is this with all websites/pages, some, a few?

If there is still a problem,

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

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

While you are in Troubleshoot(Safe) mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.
