Norton Safe Web blocks Yahoo Finance links in Firefox
When I go to Yahoo Finance website (https://ca.finance.yahoo.com/) in Firefox browser, everything appears normal but when I click to open a link, nothing happens. This happens with all the links on the website. I get the hand and the URL of the link in the bottom left hand corner, but when I click to open nothing happens. However If I right-click on a link and select "Open link in a new tab" the link opens but this is not a practical workaround.
The reason I believe the problem is with Safe Web is that when I restart Firefox in "Safe Mode", or disable the Norton Safe Web extension in normal mode, the links open correctly in the same tab. It appears that there is an compatibility issue with the Safe Web extension in Firefox. Yet it seems like only Yahoo Finance website is affected. What can be done to return to normal behavior?
My operating system is Windows 8.1 64-bit. Firefox version 69.0.1.
