User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10 When using firefox to access a remote machine that is being shared with VNC or TightVNC, a right click on the remote machine's desktop will cause the remote machine's context menu to appear (as it should) as well as Firefox's context menu. Firefox's context menu should not appear. Apparently, Firefox is capturing the mouse click even though it is intended to only go to the remote machine. This also occurs when using Firefox on Win2k. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set up a machine to share its desktop using VNC or TightVNC. 2. Use Firefox to access the remote machine. 3. Right click on the remote machine's desktop. Actual Results: Both the remote machine's context menu and Firfox's context menu are invoked. Expected Results: Only the context menu on the remote machine should appear. This behavior does not occur when using IE as the browser.
Bug 250753 is the Seamonkey equivalent of this. Note that what's going on here is "as designed" in the sense that we're not allowing the remote site to disable our own context menu. However, we need to either have some way of making an exception (so that things like clicking inside a VNC window DOES disable our context menu) or implementing a whitelist of certain sites that are allowed to disable our context menu so as to prevent this problem.
