Unable to replicate in Ubuntu, will try Windows as suggested.

> Unable to replicate in Ubuntu, will try Windows as suggested.

I've managed to reproduce it in the latest m-c build but only on Windows platforms. With prior builds before this bug landed, users could right click on the back/forwards buttons and receive a context menu with a list of the history. With the latest m-c build, you have to quickly double click twice to get the same context menu. Examples:

* right click on the forward/back button
* wait a few ms and right click on it again and you'll get the context menu
** if you don't do the second right click a few ms after the first right click, it will seem like it's not working

Unfortunately, there's no errors or indicators of something going wrong under the browser console or the terminal when running m-c in debug.

Let me know if you need any help Jonathan :)
