Right Click Disabled
Apr 25th, 2005 at 2:32pm
 
Just a small suggestion.....

I find the disabled right click on the database search annoying as often there are (long) website addresses etc listed that can't be pasted in to the browser.

Can this be removed?

No, as it's done for a reason - try highlighting data & use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl/C instead !  Roll Eyes

I'm sure you could be told the reason, but the kickboxing monkeys would have to be dispatched to kill you... Undecided  Your Call!  Grin

How dare you control my browser!

On your main site (not forums), why can I not right-click on any page (except google ads etc)?

I use Mozilla Firefox, love tabbed-browsing, and often want to open a link in another tab which requires a right-click. I may want to copy some text (e.g. a phone number!) to the clipboard, the easiest way to do this is to right-click.

But you are controling the way I use my browser. How dare you! Why?

If you are using Firefox, you can disable this "feature". Go to Tools > Options (on Windows) (or Edit > Preferences on Mac/Linux). Choose "Content", then click the "Advanced..." button next to "Enable Javascript". You should disable most if not all of the options in there to prevent websites taking control of your browser. This time, specifically, un-check "Disable or replace context menus". Right clicking will now work on this and any other site.

By the way, to open a new tab I click the middle button (i.e. the scroll wheel), which does so immediately. No sure if that's the default on Windows (I use Firefox on Linux).

or hold ctrl when you click the link..

don't know why the site creator is trying to disable right-clicks though - it's one of those things we all do when we first figure out how to do it, but then we usually grow out of it since it looks childish and doesn't achieve anything anyway..  Angry

Having just found this site I have to say its great, but why cant I create a shortcut, or even save as a favourite ??? without this I have to keep retyping the address each time I need a phone number, eventually I will probably be lazy and forget or not bother.

I assume you using Internet Explorer and are right-clicking and wanting to select 'Add to Favorites'.

You can do the same by going to the search page (or home page) or whatever page you want to bookmark, and selecting Favorites menu > Add to Favorites.

What are you trying to copy? I cannot right click in Internet Explorer but I can copy numbers by selecting them and pressing Ctrl+C.

I find this incredibly annoying, as when I was trying to send a message about a phone number not working, I couldn't cut and paste my message into the text box.

Anyways, I fixed this by following jrawle's suggestion of going into Firefox settings, Tools > Options (on Windows) (or Edit > Preferences on Mac/Linux). Choose "Content", then click the "Advanced..." button next to "Enable Javascript". And un-checking "Disable or replace context menus".

Oh and jrawle, I use Windows, and I just started using the middle button (the scroll wheel) to open new tabs, and I didn't do anything to enable this behaviour, so I think this is the default in Windows too.

So please could the site Admins change this annoying behaviour, as it doesn't stop what ever your afraid of, but it does annoy people using your site.

Sorry to say but I've been through "every" part of the site (accessible to users), highlighted text and then used "Ctrl-C" to copy text, and pasted it elsewhere. It worked every time and I'm just using the bog standard IE to browse.

You've got a problem with your system I'm sorry to say.  Undecided

Control + C work for copying, on this site and others. But using the Mouse to Right Click and select Copy doesn't work by default on this site, but it does work on others. I have changed my Firefox settings to now enable right-clicking with the mouse to work on this site. So I'm sorrry, but that means that THIS SITE IS BADLY CONFIGURED, not my system.

Thanks
