Website buttons often non-clickable

Post by lashkevi » 2020-02-13, 22:54

Recently, I noticed that buttons on various websites are non-clickable in Pale Moon. They remain inactive, when I feel up forms, for example. I need to launch another browser for such websites to operate.

I use Pale Moon 28.8.2.1 (64-bit for Linux). Probably, the problem appeared on 28.8.2, but I am not sure.

Try to order anything on svyaznoy.ru (without paying surely ;) ) or to book a ticket on uralairlines.ru.

How about contacting the webmasters first? Make them aware that essential purchasing actions on their sites aren't working. I'm sure they would not like to lose that business, right?

They will have no problems with their businesses, because they do not consider Pale Moon as a supported browser. And recently I find this problem on many sites, not only commercial ones.

1. Have you tried with a new profile?

2. Are you using an ad-blocker or script-blocker addon? If so, perhaps this is the cause of the problem.

And what would you like the Pale Moon team to do about this?

I don’t see any problem with shopping in this store.

Pale Moon 28.8.2 x64 / Win 8.1 / uBlock Origin runs with all 3rd-party scripts and frames blocked

Check your settings for session cookies from svyaznoy.ru. Maybe you wrongly reject them.

As for uralairlines.ru, yes, the buttons are unresponsive.

Well maybe they should. There are many many users in the Russian Federation using Pale Moon now, and growing rapidly every month.
They might not get much feedback from them, but they might lose quite a bit of potential business when not being very browser-agostic for a commercial website if it prevents purchases.

The buttons at both sites seems to work just fine for me.
Although, there is a recurring captcha at uralairlines.ru, which pops up endlessly!
