Right click problem on Firefox 3 makes me crazy 🙂
I got annoying problem for context menu on Firefox 3 with openSUSE 11.1. The right click menu often accidentally open a random context menu. It may automatically opened current page in a new window, in a new tab, open the bookmark or favorites menu, open link properties and so on.
At first time, I think the problem occurredÂ because I have a broken mouse, so I throw out the mouse and replace it with a new one. The problem still exist and I’m thinking something problem with my openSUSE.
After various Google search, I found out that the problem is Firefox bug. It wasn’t hit openSUSE only, because same annoying bug also hit Ubuntu. Take a look here, here and there.
Mozilla developer has been working on this issue and probably attach the fix on next release. Below is some workaround for temporary solving the problem :
- Install mouse gestures add-on. I tried it and the crazy problem was gone.
- Try to hold down right click before choose the appropriate menu
- Disable right click and used the scroll menu
- Remove Firefox 3 and installing Firefox 2 or another web browser 😛 . Opera is a good choice either…
The last workaround just for fun only. Don’t take it too serious 🙂
