Right Click

Postby lajackson » Sat Jan 26, 2013 8:34 pm

When I right click on an event on the calendar, my browser right click menu appears and covers up the calendar menu so that I cannot select things such as delete, copy, etc. If I get really tricky and click on an event a little above the bottom of the page, the longer browser menu will appear above and the shorter calendar menu will appear below.

I realize this may not be a calendar problem, but I only have this trouble when I am using the Church calendar, so I thought I would ask here for any ideas to work through this problem. Thanks.

Windows XP Pro, Firefox 18.0.1.

I do not see what you are seeing. I also have Windows XP Pro and Firefox 18.0.1. This must be a user setting for your browser. I only get the calendar shortcut menu and do not get the browser shortcut menu when I right-click any where within the calendar display area. I can only get the browser shortcut menu when the mouse pointer is outside the calendar display area.

I noticed that a recent calendar upgrade now displays the calendar event details description when hovering the mouse pointer over the event title. I can can get both the details description for that event along with the calendar shortcut menu right clicking the event title and then sliding the mouse pointer to be over the event title again.

I'm trying it out on Win 7, FF 18.0.1 and can't duplicate the behavior.

It's strange that you're getting both the browser and the Calendar's right-click menu.
On Firefox > Options > Content you can choose to not allow overrides of the context menu (under JavaScript advanced), but if I do that I only see the browser menu, not both.

There are some Firefox extensions that might affect the right click behavior, too. I don't know if any of those would cause both menus to be shown. Are you using any extensions?

I'm not getting both within the calendar display area.

I have the default setting "Disable or replace context menus" checked. When I unchecked that setting I got the behavior you describe.

I turned off my extensions and tested before I tested the Java context menus settings. None of the five affected the behavior. Just thought I'd mention that even though the Java context menus settings being off is what causes the behavior for me.

That box was not checked in my browser. When I checked the box, the problem went away. The Calendar menu shows up and not the web page context menu when I right click.

At first, I thought only the browser menu was showing, but I noticed that if I let up on the right button, the browser menu went away and the calendar menu was under it and went away a fraction of a second later.

That's how I figured out that if I clicked at a location close enough to the bottom of the screen, the longer menu would show above the click, but the shorter menu would still have enough room to show up below the click. Both menus were there every time.

But with the setting recommended, only the calendar menu shows up. The browser menu does not appear and get in the way.

Thank you, all, for your help with troubleshooting this for me.
