Face Select not Working Most of the Time

The latest 2.81 versions since about 2 days ago have been making me hate life. Just clicking to select a face doesn’t work. It doesn’t matter what selection mode I’m in.

Please report a bug. In Blender Help menu -> Report a bug. Simple way to let developers know.

Has there been a fix issued to this problem? I’m still having this same trouble, though intermittently, with 2.81.
