Many forums and news websites does not link to external websites due to several reasons and users must manually copy the link text,and paste it into addressbar to open the URL.
Install Linkification addon from Mozilla and restart your browser.
Now you will be able to convert text links into genuine, clickable links.
After installing addon:
To view and set options, you can use the Linkification right-click context menu, or right-click the status bar icon and click "Options", or click Tools->Extensions, and double-click the Linkification item.
