Yes, and no....
Only Firefox behaves that way. Chrome doesn't, for instance, but I'm not very much at ease with it yet.
I'll have to switch over, if FF keeps on playing up this way, though.

Yes Patrick,
I do use K and Shift+K too, but it happens anyway...

I've even tried bringing the mouse to focus, and double-clicking with the
left mouse button on the numpad... The best that happens is that I have to
click or press enter twice on a link to activate it, the worst is that
something completely diffrent opens.

It started midway through the life of FF44, and it's still here in 45...

One thing to be careful of is to make sure nvda only has a link in
focus - I usually use k and shift-k to do that. When there is, for
example, a bullet then a link, then it may open something altogether.
I've been had by that several times those last weeks.

Hello list,
For a week or so now, Firefox is driving me crazy.

When I click on a link on a webpage, for some reason I end up
clicking on something different from the one I had under my fingers
on my braille display or that is read by the synth.

Today I even upgraded to Firefox 45.0 to see whether the problem
could be solved, but no... Still the same.

I'm using the latest Next snapshot of NVDA, but the same thing
happens with an older version of NVDA (2015.2), so I think it might
be something in Firefox.

Has anyone experienced someghing similar?
