While searching multiple pages and right clicking links to open in new tab. I am constantly finding that the menu for right click does not open, instead I am getting random windows pop up. This does not happen every single time i right click, it seems to go in series. I will get a run of being able to open in new tabs, then i will get a run of random windows. A few of the windows have been: - 
Element properties.
Switching Page direction
And other elements and windows for mozilla.
I have found this most common while opening quiet a few tabs from google search results, I have also found that it only happens while right clicking links, not right clicking in blank spaces.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to google and search for something
2. Right click and open in new tabs while not changing tabs.
Actual Results:  
What i said above

Expected Results:  
Open the right click menu

Does it also happen with a clean profile? (

I was experiencing the same thing and I tried creating a new profile. It seems that this problem does not affect the new profile.

I have been having this problem a lot (about once every 15 minutes) in firefox 3 using linux. There are already bug reports for some of the individual errors you mention:

* Bug 433829 -  page switches direction with single right click

and this bug is probably a duplicate of

* Bug 455432 -  Right-click results in random action in some instances (as opposed to a context menu).

Somebody previously suggested to me to create a new profile. I will try after this and report back.

Creating a new profile did not cure the problem. I created a fresh profile with Firefox 3.0.3 and although it seemed to mitigate the problems at first, they do still occur and seem to be slowly increasing in frequency.
