Although I'm not participating in this thread, I'd like you to
hear a few words from me:
When I happen to come across a link that won't open after making
100 efforts to make it open, I then do the following:
I focus on the very link that won't budge, and then, I do the
right mouse clicking, and then I open the link in a new window in
Chrome. That's helped me several times. Make sure whether it is a
link you wish to open. If it turns out to be a button, then this
trick won't help.
Hope this helps.

would usually hover over with a mouse.
Whatever the case, I said that what is going on may
require sighted evaluation.

I don’t often rely on that as
sometimes when you tab away the edit fields can and may
disappear. What browser are you using btw.
When I was on the link, I opened the
context menu in the browser and pressed enter on
copy. Your browser may say something different
in the menu like copy location or copy link.
That copied the link to the clipboard. When I
read what was there, it just said JAVA script.
Since you aren’t blocking scripts, finding out
what is occurring on the page may require
sighted evaluation. However, after you pressed
enter on the link, did you go to the top of the
page and use the e command to move through the
page looking for an edit field that may have
come up in a different place on the page for

not using any script blockers. The site is trust
worthy but I appreciate where you are coming
from. How did you extract the underlying link?
Are you using any sort of
script blocker or do you have JAVA scripts
set to off in your browser? This is a
JAVA script link, as I found when I copied
the underlying link to the clipboard. I
don’t know anything about the
trustworthiness of this site so I haven’t
visited the page with JAVA script enabled.
