Lisa Toth   I participate in a covid 19 survey by Stanford Medical.  Everyday they send me a reminder. I click on the survey button and take the short survey.  This morning no matter where I clicked the link did nothing.  So I right clicked on it, looked at the code

and style sheet.  I could see that it should work.  So I exited the code and tried the button again.  This time it worked!!!  I didn’t try to change anything I just looked at it.
