Right click context menu suddenly started changing all the time?

Veröffentlicht

In the last few days, the context menu when I right click(RC) changes and usually follows whatever the last click was. An example is if I RC on a hyperlink, the next time I RC on the Google search bar or anywhere else, the same menu comes up. If I RC on an icon sometimes the menu with the back/forward arrows that appear on the top will come up and then if I RC on something like the area to type this text the same menu follows. It used to include cut, copy and paste and now it never does, making it difficult to do these functions for searches, typing text, etc. This is an issue unique to the Firefox browser and it does it in no others programs. Can anyone provide possible reasons why this is happening and a solution to fix it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window

The restart solved the issue but it was also created with a restart for update.. The problem went away with the restart and can no longer be duplicated but I will remember this is the future if it does. Thanks for the help.
