Description

I've noticed that link clicking is frequently not detected on my 2012 N7.  The links highlight as they should when tapped but the link is not followed.  If I tap and hold on a link for the open options menu, I can open the link in a new tab without any further difficulty.

I have found one page that is particularly noticeable on this evening:

http://www.seas.upenn.edu/~cis194/

as well as a few of the other pages under this directory.

The links at the top of the page for "Lectures & Assignments" and "Final Project" required at least 3 taps each on separate occasions to open in the same tab.  In one instance I stopped trying after 22 taps on the "Final Project" link.

Restarted Firefox and tried again.  The "Final Project" link remains stubbornly uncooperative.  The link will not be opened in the same tab.

What version of Firefox are you using? A couple of patches landed recently that fix a couple of bugs related to this - try using nightly and see if you still see it.

Whoops.  Thought I'd updates this bug.  Nightly build available on the date I filed the bug didn't seem susceptible to the same problems.

Thanks. Marking fixed with dependencies.
