    Question Context menu right button not working w/ Firefox 1.5

    Hi,

    I'm using zimbra beta3 on fedora 4 and when I'm accessing my mail via Mozilla 1.5 browser I can't use the right button for the context menu. It is working just fine w/ Firefox 1.0.4 for example (on a different machine) or Internet Explorer 6.0 (on same pc). Is this a known bug or something new? any workaround?

    thanks!

    You subject says Firefox but your description says Mozilla. Which one is it? I use Firefox 1.5 and it works just fine.

    I'm using Firefox 1.5, with IE tab, All-in-One Gestures, Sage, del.icio.us, SearchPluginsHacks as extensions... weird...

    Try it with "All-in-One Gestures" disabled. We've heard reports of it not working with similar extensions.

    yes, that was the issue! any plan on fixing it? or at least inform the user it won't work when this or that extension is installed (hopefully automatically and not through some documentation that typically will not be read)?

    thanks for the tip anyway!

    Need to see if we can detect it first. May be that the ext is eating the events and we never see them in our code.

    I am completely addicted to mouse gestures and they are much more valuable than context menus in a mail client, so for the time being I am doing without the menus. That said, I'm pretty sure that this can't be fixed from the application side. I believe that the mouse gesture extensions should add a feature that lets you disable the extension on certain domains.

    Ooh! Just found that holding down Alt while right-clicking gets me the menu! That solves the issue completely as far as I am concerned, though people who use context menus more often will probably not be as thrilled.
