Strange Dotted Box When Click Links

Hey everyone,

When I select a link and click, a strange red or white dotted box appears around the link and then disappears. This may be normal and I've just happened to notice it now

Here's an example -

My browser is Firefox 22.

I have it on every link, I'll check a different website. It doesn't happen on Sysnative.

Strangely, the issue has just seemed to disappear, it was either rebooting or restarting Firefox.
