Question: High Sierra link problems

Since I installed High Sierra on my MacPro a few days ago, I have discovered that links no longer work at all - so for example, if I go to trip advisor and click on a website in an entry, it no longer goes to the site, I received a mail this morning from a hotel chain and wanted to look at the offer and when I click nothing; same with a link to a birthday card in an e-mail I received. this has only happened since I installed the new os. I havent yet been able to check whether I have the same issue with my iMac which is in another location, but I suspect it will be the same.

Does anyone else have this problem and are there any suggestions to resolve this pretty major issue? Thanks

MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2012), Its showing 10.13.1 - not listed
