In an effort to warn people against reproducing images or text from a page, some
authors use event.button to check whether the right mouse button has been
pressed, and display a message box. Presumably the assumption is that the right
mouse button is used to copy images from a page. However, this interferes with
selecting any functions from the context menu. Furthermore, it makes
mouse-gesture style plugins, such as radial context, completely unusable. In the
`advanced javascript options' window (tools -> options -> web features ->
advanced), there should be an option to allow scripts to detect the right mouse
button, or something similar.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the test case

Actual Results:  
Pressing the right mouse button pops up a dialog box

Expected Results:  
Not displayed a dialog box if disabled by user prefs
