Not clickable links in the Wikidata user interface

I mentioned this on the French WP Village Pump and saved a screenshot of a Wikidata item showing what I have experienced sometimes:

  • when editing the "mère" (mother) property, I cannot add a qualifier because the "ajouter un qualificatif" (add qualifier) is totally inert as if it was a background image, it does not get underlined under the mouse cursor
  • for the "père" (father) property, a qualifier is now present so the situation is a little different, what does not get underlined is the "supprimer" (remove) positioned like in the previous case at the first line below the property value, though sometimes I can find a very narrow vertical zone in the downward leg of the "p" where the cursor makes it underlined and working

Now I see that the [?] tooltip giving instructions about the property value is fully over the "+" of "ajouter un qualificatif" for "mère", and almost fully over the "trash can" icon of "supprimer" for "père", so I suspect the root of the problem is a bad position of this [?] which does not allow to edit Wikidata properly whenever it happens.

I tried on the same (old) computer and I cannot reproduce this bug: now the previous screenshot looks like on this new screenshot, with the [?] tooltip on the right of the box and not over the "+" (add qualifier) or the "trash can" (remove). So I am not sure for all configurations, but for mine it seems the problem is solved, though I wonder how it happened and what has changed.
