I’ve got a weird problem here. My right click always acts iffy on
certain applications in openSUSE 11.1. For example, Firefox (the way it
behaves is always the same regardless of the application, but it doesn’t
seem as if all apps do this). I’ll right-click on the page to bring up
the right-click menu, and lots of times as soon as I right-click it menu
pops up and disappears. I may have to right-click as many as 10 times
before I get the menu to stay up, and sometimes I have to right-click
and hold it and drag my cursor down to the option I want. It’s very odd
and getting very frustrating. Any ideas on what this could be?
I never had this problem on Windows but I do believe I had it a little
bit (not to this extent) on Ubuntu 8.04.
I was just reading the other day that the latest Firefox has a specific
known problem with this issue. Sorry I can’t find the link or direct you
to the info, but typical symptoms include random right-click options
being activated without selecting them, just from doing the initial
right-click and nothing else, which is what happens on my own machine
Your problems may well be related, though if you say it’s happening in
other apps perhaps not. I don’t recall whether this was a SUSE-specific
issue or common with Firefox in general.
