This has been bothering me for a couple weeks and I wanted to see if it was just me. :laugh:

When I try to click a link in the navigation bar on PC, there only seem to be a couple clickable pixels on the link underline and below the word. The word itself isn't clickable. Is this something with my browser (Brave) that I'll just have to deal with? I'm not able to replicate it with Chrome or Firefox.

To be clear, the navigation bar I'm referring to is the one with the forum structure (i.e. Forums > TarValon.Net Community > Ask the White Tower > FAQ & Member Information). Those are the only links that I seem to be having problems with.

Wow. Ok. I was able to replicate this. Interestingly, if you are NOT logged in, you can click the links anywhere just fine. But once you are logged in, then it is really hard to click those. So. We can definitely make it work since it works when not logged in. Just let me tinker :D

I was able to replicate in both Chrome and Brave. Brave is built on chromium so it's not surprising that it's both. That would also mean any other chromium based browser would also act this way. Joy!

I had just notified this on Brave. i thought some things weren’t even clickable and then i realized i had to click in just the right spot.

The logged-in bit explains why I couldn’t replicate on Chrome myself, I tried it out but didn’t log in and didn’t think further. How weird!

Thanks a lot Qam! And very reassured that it’s not just me. :laugh:

Yep, I was noticing the same behavior on Edge (which is also Chromium based - isn't everything on desktop at this point besides Firefox?).

I'd actually considered starting a thread but then thought, eh, maybe I'm just using the uncool browser or something (I mean, why install Chrome on Windows anymore? Edge and Chrome are just the same thing with different coats of paint, it's not like Linux where you basically have to use Google's Chrome because it's the only thing that will let you view DRM protected web content).

Thanks Stasia & Qam :)
