I have a couple html buttons on a page. The below are "frozen" on the screen until I jump start it by using a drop down value then they work perfectly fine.
Below are the buttons that dont work until i trigger them by clicking on another one that does a submit to server. Then these buttons work just fine. Is there something maybe wrong with my java script or I have something wrong with a settings somewhere maybe? Kjndof scratching my head on this one.

The buttons just dont seem to acknowedge a click. They are enabled but simply dont allow a click. Its a strange one. My other screen doesnt do this. Could it be how I implemented my screen somehow?

Is the browser window not in focus for some reason so the first click focus the window and second click interacts with it?
