      toward the lower right below the answer you wish to reply to. There should be a link for “Best answer” and above that will be the reply, as well as a vote link.
      That is if everything works according to plan!

        What you describe is what I would have expected – But – I do not have any of these buttons, which is why I am confused. I have now put this forum link into an old version of Chrome, which I still have on my PC from years ago, and have the buttons, hence this reply.

        Now to find out what is wrong with Firefox, or rather what else is wrong with Firefox.

          I more or less gave up a bit over a year ago on FF
          when I started having problems with their reliance
          on pulseaudio in Linux. Switched to Palemoon,
          which is based on older FF.

          Looked at Palemoon years ago but it was too new to do many things. I will look at it again. Like many people I am fed up with Firefox, or rather the developers. Every time they upgrade it !!! they break it and it takes ages, if at all, to get it working properly again. I was brought up in industry with the motto – if it aint broke don’t fix it. At least there is an easy way now to stop it upgrading rather than the hacking it used to require.

      Restart FF with add-ons disabled.

        Yes !!!!!!
        I already tried disabling add-ons one at a time.
        The answer was Ghostery – it seems to think the reply links are some sort of advert or tracker – weired

          Is not an advertisement link, but it could have an effect on your computer’s cookies instead. Ghostery may have been a little aggressive trying to block cookies. I have no experience with that application so I don’t have any specific advice.

          that’s the reason I haven’t installed it.
