** Description changed:
Binary package hint: firefox-3.0
I am using firefox 3.0~b3~cvs20080101t1000+nobinonly-0ub
when I right click on a link sometimes instead of popping up the normal right click menu one of these thing happens:
- the link is automatically opened in a new window
- the link is automatically opened in a new tab
- the add to favourites menu appears
- link properties are opened
==== Workaround ====
Workaround: Install the Mouse Gestures plug-in
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/39 and restart Firefox.
- Please don't comment if workaround fixes the problem for you. Otherwise,
- give hints how to reproduce please!
+ Workaround 2: click and hold the right button until the menu appears,
+ then release the button over the menu item you want.
+ Please don't comment if either workaround fixes the problem for you.
+ Otherwise, give hints how to reproduce please!
