Doing a shift-click or a click-and-hold on a link should bring up a popup menu as in Navigator. Mozilla does not currently appear to have this functionality.

janc, is this one already written up. Dup?
hyatt, I'm going to give this to you for now since you own context menus. We can still have our further discussions of embedding api stuff.
reassigning to don, infrastructure is in place

Bill, we need to get to the Mac-specific context menu stuff before beta ...
First, I need some clarification. Shift-click on a link in Navigator does not bring up a menu (on Windows, at least). It is a shortcut for "Save link as..." on Windows. My guess is that the 5.0 mouse event handling treats button down as "click" so holding it down doesn't produce a context menu (on the mac, it never did/should do this on other platforms, correct?). So I think we need to: 1. Define precisely how we want this to work (on each platform). 2. Decide which problem (deviation from expected behavior defined in step 1) *this* bug is for and assign that bug appropriately. 3. Open and assign new bugs for any other deviations from the behavior described in step 1. I don't think any of those bugs will ultimately be assigned to me or my xpapps friends, but I'm willing to keep this one till an appropriate assignee can be identified.
Still waiting for clarifications.
OK, since I don't really have any control over the event handling that determines a context menu has been summoned, I'm going to attempt to reassign this to those who do (back to the owner of the "event handling" component).
On MacOS, the standard combination for bringing up the context menu is Ctrl- click, not Shift-click. (See URL.) Shift-click-and-hold should work, but only because the Shift is ignored and it's assumed to be the same as a normal click-and-hold (the context menu appears after a delay of about 0.5 seconds). Does Ctrl-click work? (I don't have a working current build.) If not, the Summary should be changed.
control-click does work. It brings up a contex menu.
Moving to m13 because Joki seems to be distracted.
Somebody dealing with context menus can have this one. Saari?
