Hi, i'm also able to reproduce this issue in beta 79.0b5 (64-bit). A double click is required to make links work. See bug

Best regards,

Blocks: rdm-touch
No longer blocks: dt-rdm-fission

Hi Micah,
When hovering over each section's link, the text that appears at bottom left corner of the browser's window won't correspond to the section, is it related to this issue? Video attached was tested on beta 79.0b7 (64-bit), macOs 10.14
Best, Clara

Hi Clara, it looks like this might be related to the existing issue. It seems like the touch points for the links are a little bit offset. Thanks for the update!
