I don't think this is a problem with my system as I'm not getting any issues with any other websites, but very often when I visit the HomeBrew Forum, the links to each section of the site (e.g. 'General Beer Brewing Discussion', 'General Beer Discussion' etc.) become inactive and don't respond when I mouse over. If I refresh the site, then they become active again and I can move around the site. That will usually stop after a couple of clicks though and I'll have to refresh again.

I'm on a Mac running macOS BigSur 11.2.3 and Firefox 87.0. My phone (Android) and iPad seem fine.

Thanks for letting us know I will ask @Angie if she can look into this.

If any other members are having the same issues can you post below and mention what you are viewing the site on, thanks.

@GhostShip Can you try it on another browser to see if it's just the Firefox or a larger issue?

Hi Angie - I can't seem to replicate the problem in Safari, but had the same problem with Firefox this morning, so it does seem to be a Firefox issue. The strange thing is that I've not had the same problem on any other site.

This is strange. I have switched to Firefox and with the most up to date Win10, and up to date Firefox, all the link are active when I click on them. Even if I have clicked on them before. So, I wonder if it's an update feature.
