Thread: Context menu broken in FF3b4/b5

  1. Context menu broken in FF3b4/b5

    As of FF3b4, right-clicking on FORM elements such as checkboxes, radioboxes,
    buttons, and dropdown list elements no longer produces a context menu. I've
    only verified it on Winodows. Does anyone know if this is a bug or perhaps
    intentional? (It's a show-stopper for us.)

    btw, is there a more appropriate forum to post this to?

    Hi Alan,
    You're in the right newsgroup. I can right-click on the search box
    on any website. Please provide the url and the specific places within
    that fail, and the context menu item that you expect to see and what
    happens instead. I can't believe you see no context menu at all, unless
    the site itself turns it off

    BTW, there is no form on anywebsite.com, but certainly get a context
    menu from digg.com

    Hi David,
    Text boxes (like the search box) still work fine (INPUT TYPE=TEXT). I'm
    talking other form elements, like TYPE=RADIO, TYPE=BUTTON, TYPE=CHECKBOX or
    the SELECT or OPTION tag. Try right-clicking on the "Other languages" SELECT
    box at the bottom of http://www.firefox.com. Before FF3b4 you'd get a
    context menu whether you right-clicked directly on the box, or whether you
    first activated the drop-down and right-clicked on one of the languages
    listed in the dropdown box. It seems broken on every site for me.

    It seems intentional. See

    Doesn't seem like a user thing . Either report it directly through bugzilla
    or to the newsgroup mozilla.dev.apps.firefox with the specifics, of course.

    Thanks for the pointers David/Hasse. If I can't find a workaround I'll take
    it up under bugzilla.
