    Links not working.

    Often, when I click on a link in a post, the screen jumps and nothing happens. No new window, or tab, nothing.
    If I right click and select Open in New Window, or New Tab, then things work normally.

    This is only happening here on JPR.

    Case in point, the link near bottom of OP – https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/ace-hardware-refusing-to-sell-propane-to-standing-rock-h2o-protectors-in-blizzar/

    1. I tried to duplicate your issue, but no luck.

    I clicked on all the links in that thread. All links opened in a new tab.

    For troubleshooting purposes, what browser (including version) are you using?

      The problem is only here, no other web site.

        3. I often use Pale Moon and haven't encountered this

        I opened the JPR post to which you linked, and then opened both links within that post.  All opened without a hitch.

        I’m using Pale Moon Version 27 on a Windows laptop.  I don’t remember whether I’ve installed the 27.0.1 release that came out Monday.

          4. This started sometime before that

          I switched from Firefox because it was getting so slow. Pale Moon is much faster.

          Anyway, I’ll look at my setup to see if is something is screwed up.

    5. I found the problem

    I disable uBlock for only JPR. Now everything works. It is only the JPR site that has the problem.
