With Safari 7.x, reproducible with extensions off, something like this: http://forums.macrumors.com/watched/threads Command-Click the title of a topic click the tab for that topic, read the new posts reload that tab click the Unread Watched Threads tab scroll down point at some of the links The links are not what's expected. Screenshot attached, note the URL in the status bar; unrelated to what's indicated by the finger of the gloved hand. In some places where there's no visible link, the gloved hand appears (and the status bar shows a URL for a link). Screen recording available on request, 22.6 MB. Maybe a transient local issue. Extraordinary. I'll restart the OS.
