For me, this was fixed by going to Apple > System Preferences > Trackpad and deselecting Tap to click. Footnotes then work perfectly. Strangely, even after reselcting Tap to click, they still work as they should.
But if anyone else is using a trackpad, the solution above might work.

Well, this sure is…odd.
Anyway, I think I have come to a simple workaround: change the footnote marker from a single asterisk to an asterisk and a space… and it's seems to be working so far.
Now I'm crossing my fingers and hope it won't mess the thing up with a bunch of unwanted spaces.
