Comment (by dcooney):

 Hi @peterwilsoncc,
 Thanks and apologize for the delay as I was away.

 I am using the [Ajax Load More](https://wordpress.org/plugins/ajax-load-
 more/) plugin.

 The plugin retrieves comments via Ajax using get_comments() and
 wp_list_comments() functions.
 It returns them via JSON and then appended to the DOM.

 I am seeing this issue in all browsers. This issue was not present in WP

 The get_comment_reply_link() function has been modified and creates issues
 with the href on the 'Reply' button and the mutation event is working
 causing a browser link action to trigger.

 $link = sprintf(
         "<a rel='nofollow' class='comment-reply-link' href='%s' %s aria-
                                 'replytocom'      => $comment->comment_ID,
                                 'unapproved'      => false,
                                 'moderation-hash' => false,
         ) . '#' . $args['respond_id'],
         esc_attr( sprintf( $args['reply_to_text'],
 $comment->comment_author ) ),



 $onclick = sprintf( 'return addComment.moveForm( "%1$s-%2$s", "%2$s",
 "%3$s", "%4$s" )',
         $args['add_below'], $comment->comment_ID, $args['respond_id'],

 $link = sprintf( "<a rel='nofollow' class='comment-reply-link' href='%s'
 onclick='%s' aria-label='%s'>%s</a>",
         esc_url( add_query_arg( 'replytocom', $comment->comment_ID,
 get_permalink( $post->ID ) ) ) . "#" . $args['respond_id'],
         esc_attr( sprintf( $args['reply_to_text'],
 $comment->comment_author ) ),


 from 5.0 fixes the issue.
