think this dovetails with upgrading to Mojave but who knows.... big annoyance.

In Mail, mostly, but I think other places. I used to click a link and the browser would open up on the page in one shot.

How it takes two clicks. The first click just shows the blank homepage ( set to Google); then I have to go back and click again, and then the page comes up. Thanks

I do not have the same problem in Mail with Mojave. What are your browser Preferences for opening new windows?

Thanks Ira, not just Mail, its' links on desktop, links I click from Drag Thing, super nuisance. Firefox is default browser for 10 years. No energy to change it. But the problem seemed to vanished on a 4 days test defaulting to Safari. I've posted on FF site, no one has a clue. Not many are with Mac over there.

I've noticed that too, for quite a while.

It seems to happen after I quit FF (either intentionally or by hitting cmd-q when I meant to hit cmd-w). The first link click launches FF and brings up the blank page and only the second time does it launch the intended site.
