User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511

A right mouse click on some MSN urls acts as a standard left mouse button click
and follows the link instead of bringing up the menu that allows various options
(notably open in new tab).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to 23 Jun 2005 MSN (www.msn.com) web page
2. Right click on "Bombs jolt Bagdahd awake" link
3.

Actual Results:  
Mozilla follows the link instead of opening a menu

Expected Results:  
Standard Right Click menu should have opened

If this is not a bug, but instead a "hidden feature" whereby a web page can
disable the right button context menu, I think it is a very poor choice for your
user community.  I expect to ALWAYS be able to get the right button context menu
- NO EXCEPTIONS.

This breaks a major feature (tabbed browsing) of Mozilla.
This has nothing to do with security.
