Normally, when one right-clicks the mouse on a web page, a context menu will pop up, containing various options depending on the particular item that one right-clicks on.

On occasion, rather than getting the context menu some action will be performed.  This action varies, and only seems to occur when a very rapid right-click is executed (i.e. the right mouse button is pressed and then released in a very short time span).  Executing a right-click more slowly (click taking on the order of 1/2 second or so) seems to reliably bring up the context menu).

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Navigate to web page of interest
2.Highlight some text and right-click on it (e.g. to copy for pasting into another document) or right-click on an image (e.g. to copy the image location).
3.IMPORTANT: Execute the right-click as quickly as possible!
4.Repeat above process, but using a slow mouse right-click (> 500 mS).
Actual Results:  
Observe that at occasionally, completely unexpected things will happen.  This may happen 1 time in 100, or 1 time in 5.

Expected Results:  
The right-click context menu should pop up.
