Can’t right-click on a website? See below.

It can sometimes be the case when visiting a web site that you lose right-click functionality (also known as the context menu). This can be quite annoying if you wish to download an image by way of the context menu. For those of you using Firefox you’ll be pleased to know there is a quick fix. Go to Tools > Options > Advanced > Uncheck Disable or replace context menus.

In a reversal of the previous case, it might be that you require the standard context menu to be replaced. The context menu in Google Maps for instance is much more useful than the standard browser context menu. And so, to get the custom context menus you so desire simply follow the aforementioned instructions only this time make sure the Disable or replace context menus box is checked.

Anyone know if/how Chrome, Internet Explorer or Opera implement this behaviour?
