What browser are you using?
There was an issue with one update a year or two ago. Where, nothing worked when we clicked on it - for anyone. That has been resolved, however. I access the forum on tablets and multiple PCs - with no issues. You may have some settings on your computer to not allow certain things - like flash turned off, or some other security program that has turned off certain features of your browser.
Try a different browser would be my 1st suggestion.
