Mouse clicks doesn't work on some random links at random scroll positions

  • It started a week ago not sure what caused it. What happens is when I go to a site called chess24.com to watch a chess tournament I can see the live chess board and buttons to navigate previous move and next move. When I scroll the page to a certain height the right part of the link (next move) doesn't work but left button work (Previous move). Also same problem happen in the chat window. At a particular position I am unable to click inside the chat message column but if I scroll the page further down I can click inside. Is this sounds like a virus to you or something I can fix?

  • Sounds like something the website should fix, actually. Let me use an example I'm more familiar with ... look at this page: https://www.machinefinder.com/ww/en-US/machines/2014-john-deere-410k-backhoe-loader-4324132

    Near the bottom of the visible area you see a set of 3 thumbnails and some arrows to scroll them left or right - depending on your screen size and how far you've scrolled the screen you will have trouble clicking the thumbnails or the arrows to scroll them. If you watch your cursor you'll see that it changes between the normal cursor and the one indicating there is something you can click at a region in there, like there is something on the page but invisible blocking it. And there is - they have a special "mobile toolbar" when you view the site on a smartphone which they hide on desktops, but the bar still covers up (i.e., prevents you from clicking on) stuff on the page even when you can't see it.

    Without some idea where on exactly which page I can't say what it is on your chess site there, but I'm reasonably sure it is something similar.
