I'm referring to Github. I expect it is probably Javascript. Clicking
hyperlinks is fine, but things like buttons with dropdown menus, the
hamburger icon, the Clone/Download button etc do nothing when I click on

For what it's worth, I'm not using an ad blocker but I am using a
moderately old Firefox.

Document this kind of thing, that is fine.

But a separate issue is that we should not try to cater to people who cannot use a modern up to date self updating trustworthy web browser.

A browser more than a few months old is a security risk; we are not going to enforce that concept, but we shouldn't go out of our way to support it either.
The same goes for anyone who disables javascript or uses a content modifying plugins or extensions in their browser.  Problems caused by that have a simple solution, it isn't on us to untangle.
