Right click menu not working correctly

Posted

When I right click paste and copy do not show up and the spell corrector does not open up any more. this seems to have started a week or so ago or more. everything is up to date. I have not added anything or changed anything.

The standard mouse has two buttons plus a scroll wheel in the middle (which also sometimes includes a button). Most mice have just two operations: right and left click. Left-click is often referred to as “normal-click” or simply just "click". Most tasks on a computer can be accomplished using the left mouse button only. Pressing the left mouse button simulates the mouse cursor being pressed down on the screen - you can drag items or select text and open files.

The right mouse button (or the right-click) is less understood and seldom used by some people, however, it is one of the most valuable tools on the computer. It provides additional functionality to the mouse. The essential purpose of the right mouse button is to provide information about what you are clicking on. It is often used to open contextual menus, which are pop-up menus that can change depending on where you click. If the left mouse button directly interacts with an object, the right mouse button often allows you to indirectly interact. Right-clicking a file provides a list of operations on the file, or the ability to display its properties. Right-clicking on your desktop background allows you to modify the desktop, and so on.

Hi tfinniii, I actually think something like that happened to me the other day, when the "context" for the context menu got confused and didn't show the appropriate menu for the place I right-clicked. After a few minutes, I restarted Firefox and haven't seen it again.

I have a lot of modifications, so it could be a side effect of something I had done. Unless it starts happening more frequently, I don't think I'll be able to figure out a pattern to it.

Does Safe Mode, then back to regular help this time?

Okay, do you want to try that "workaround" again and see whether it works a second time?

Can you list your extensions?

Are you using files like userChrome.css and userContent.css in the chrome folder ?

The first extension in the list (Absolute Enable Right Click & Copy) has right click in its name, so that extension could be a possible candidate for issues with right-clicking.
