If I hover over the button the link is displayed in the status bar.
If I click it, at first glance nothing seems to have changed.
Then, at second glance, I notice, that the buttons have changed, and if I scroll
down, there are links below the cartoon which hadn´t been there before.

When you attempt to click that link, a new page should be loaded. I contains the
current cartoon and a list of previous cartons sorted by date. Are you getting
these? Additionally there is another link on the bottom right "READ MORE STRIPS"
(which changes colour on hover) that is having the same problems. Im getting a
feeling that this page is not standards compliant, but nevertheless 1.6 used to
get around it.
Before clicking the "read past strips" link, I see just a single comic, and
nothing below it.  After clicking either link you mentioned, I see the comic,
and below it, text that reads "Recent Strips" followed by a list of days in 3
columns, from Sept. 19 to Aug. 21.

Yep that's the desired outcome.

Ok, the links "WORKSHOP", "STRIPS", "FUN STUFF" and "SHOP" does not work either,
ie change to a different page as they should (use open in new tab context menu
to get there). I've tried clearing all cache, restarting browser and it just is
not working, recently reinstalled the OS.
Again, works for me.  Try creating a new profile?
