This problem happens only on GoComics.com on the Comics I Follow page, not on any other page on GoComics.com or on any other website. Clicking with any mouse button sends that same tab to that comic's page, along with whatever the middle and right buttons should do.

Left-clicking on a comic should, and does, go to that comic's page in the same tab. Middle-clicking on it should go to that comic's page in a new tab, which it does, but the original tab also goes to that comic's page. Right-clicking should bring up a menu, which it does, but again, underneath the popup menu, the page goes to that comic's page.

This just started a few months ago. This webpage works correctly using Edge and Chrome, but I prefer Firefox.

Hello bfrg1513,

You posted in this thread mentioning that you have the same
problem; apparantly what is suggested there doesn't work for you ?

The problem just started a few months ago, and I haven't added any extensions in the last few years. It doesn't happen on any other webpage or even on any other page on that website, not even on the individual comics pages. So I didn't actually try what's suggested on the other thread. This problem is so very specific, I figure it must be something in the way that specific page is coded that doesn't work with Firefox. Should I send the problem to GoComics?

I guess the question is, does anyone else have this problem on that particular webpage? If not, then obviously it's something about my setup.

We won't know untill someone else posts the same question ....

Not necessarily, as you mention that you don't have the problem using Edge or Chrome.

As I don't use a mouse, I'm hoping that another contributor will come to your rescue.
