Sometimes it was sooo cool that the contextual menu appeared even after the new page already loaded, ie: click a link, the new page is being fetched, i notice another link and i want to right click onto it -> open in new tab, in the meantime the new page is done fetched and already displayed, the contextual menu for old link appears - this was so cool, because i didn't have to hit the back button and re-right click -> 'open in new tab' ;) (all these steps - click, right click, open in new tab - happen within one second or less) After already left clicked on a link, right click on another link does not open a menu anymore since 0.9 note that i am always having these settings changed from the default ones: config.trim_on_minimize = false advanced.system.supportDDEExec = false the feature was present in 0.7 and 0.8 (i have no idea about previous versions since i am new to firefox), no matter if the windows themes service was started and used or not, or the application's menu font size is the one from windows standard scheme or another one (like mine, trebuchet ms 12 bold), or dependant on display resolution and color depth (1024x768/16@home, 1600x1200/32@work) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: right click on a link while a new page is loading Actual Results: nothing (the contextual menu didn't appear Expected Results: show contextual menu even if after following a link i right click onto another link on the page still displayed
WFM. (Firefox 220.127.116.11 ID:2006011112) Does anyone still have this problem? Expect this to be outdated and suggest to set WORKSFORME.
yes. me. still. am i the only one experiencing this, or am i the only one that observes these little details ? ;) :) now i'm using 18.104.22.168, but now i can right click > open in new tab (now i've discovered middle click) in about 50% of the time. however this is still frustrating... i will try to create a video demonstrating the idea
I too have this happening. The context menus don't display while the page is loading a new page. ctrl+click also doesn't work while pages are loading. This problem happens pretty consistantly for me when clicking links on bbc's website (www.bbc.co.uk) I'm using version 22.214.171.124. This is an actual problem because i click on one news article and another catches my eye so i want to open it too, but alas, this is not yet possible.
Is this still an issue with the latest release?
I get this behavior on the latest trunk, but it depends on the link. I can consistently reproduce the link on bbc.co.uk, but I cannot reproduce the bug with links to forums.mozillazine.org, which happen to be down at the moment. The bug must not trigger until a specific stage in the page-loading process takes place. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a6pre) Gecko/20070612 Minefield/3.0a6pre
i can still reproduce this with public firefox 3 beta 1...
note... seems like the os doesn't matter, encountered this on windows xp, vista, linux.
this is still happening, even with firefox 3.1beta3
OS: Windows Server 2003 → Windows XP
....and a clean profile!
Costin, so you say it regressed between 0.8 and 0.9?
Henrik, it's been a long time; I don't trust my memory so much, but I really do trust my written notes, so yes, it must have been for sure 0.9 the first release when I noticed the issue :). I remember reading the bugzilla guidelines and trying to provide as much and detailed information as I could; so yes, according to my notes it regressed with the release of 0.9. What I didn't write and don't exactly rememeber is that at some point in 0.x series I was using the nightly trunk instead of 0.x release, but that for sure was before 0.9, because after 0.9 I gave up using trunk nightlies, so this feature might have lived in the nightlies before 0.9...
Those old releases are still available on the FTP server. Would you mind to have a check again? ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/. If that is true, there are even nightly builds available. It would be great if you could find a possible range when this has been regressed. The archives can be found here: ftp://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/2004/ Could you also give a list of steps needed to reproduce (e.g. on which websites it can easily be seen)...
This bug was reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.3 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME http://www.mozilla.com http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+mode
