Thread: Right click, FireFox

  1. #1

    Default Right click, FireFox

    Right click in FireFox no longer works in web pages ; no context menu pop-up.
    Right click works on FF tabs and menu bars.
    Right click works in Konqueror.

    Also, I thought that backspace key used to navigate back one page in FF history ... but this doesn't work either now.

    What's changed since right click and backspace worked ?
    Don't remember any big changes ... but I have probably run appget or Yast update at least once in this time frame.
    I'm probably not experienced enough to have tinkered directly with any config files.

    Does KDE control right click behavior in apps or does each app have control of mouse click response ?

    System = openSUSE 12.2 (i586)
    KDE = 4.8.5 (4.8.5) "release 2"
    FireFox = 19.0.2 , FireFox for openSUSE 12.2

    It works for me. And it worked for me when I was running firefox 19.0.2 on opensuse 12.2/KDE 4.8.5 .

    I suggest you create a new user account, or a new firefox profile, and see if it works there. From recollection
    Code:
    firefox -Profile &
    should start you at the profile manager.
