I confirm that this irritating problem is happening reproduceably on this Tecra 8000 (400 MHz) laptop in the following typical situation. When launching (right-click|open in a new tab) a number of URLs, such as displayed by Google Search or News, the first one or two, maybe three, launches happen swiflty. Then, either the next right-clicks produce no context menu or, some time after some click, any entry of the context menu is executed -- any at apparent random -- although the context menu was not seen. At a later time, when loading pages has calmed down, right clicking resumes normal working.
I'm unsure if the delays such as paging memory out of a crowded RAM while loading the page to be clicked itself has an effect.
But I think so and the problem is certainly affected by load and/or delays.
The effect of multiple right-clicking should be considered.

More tests on request.
Please raise the severity.
Please don't add an unstoppable "send this page ..." or the like to the context menu ;-)
