Firefox (74.0 64 bit) on a Macbook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) not allowing right click on tabs in full screen?

If I change Firefox to view Full Screen I lose the right click on any open tabs. If I exit Full Screen I regain right click functionality. I've tried in safe mode with the same results. I've also tried reinstalling Firefox.

Hi there - I have a few websites (Dynalist, Box.com) that are very important to me, and they use ctl-click / right-click to access certain functions. Whenever I try to access those in Firefox I'm greeted instead by Firefox's right-click menu. Is there some way to disable this right-click menu? I don't have this problem in other browsers (Safari, Chrome).

Mac OS Sierra, current build of Firefox Quantum.

Thanks in advance! Rich

Wrong offset for the right-click menu → Right-click on link immediately opens link in new tab unless button is held (at least three years old bug)

Hi. There is this at least three years old GUI bug that is not yet fixed, I'm writing this post to show the temporary workaround and hopefully get more interest in the bug itself. This would be an urgent usability bug, but it's still here because probably not everyone can reproduce it.

Link to one of the bug reports: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1504021


> Description

Removing the title bar doesn't set an offset for the right-click menu → the right-click menu will appear slightly wrong positioned, with its first entry below the mouse cursor → the first entry of the menu will get a mouse-release event and will trigger.

The effect of this can be different depending on what you right-click:

  • right-click some empty area in a web-page: you will be taken back to the previous page (because the first menu entry does that)
  • right-click a link: you will open the link in a new tab (because the first menu entry does that)


> Steps

  • Have a non-maximized Firefox window.
  • Disable the title bar (through the "Customize..." option)
  • Right-click anywhere on a webpage: you will be taken to the previous page.


> Workaround

Enable user styles by setting toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true. Create "chrome" folder in your profile directory. Inside, create "userChrome.css", and write:

   #contentAreaContextMenu{ margin: 20px 0 0 20px }
