websites that disable right-click functionality

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Trevor Smithson, Feb 11, 2006.

  1. Is there any way reenable right-click functionality on websites that
    disable it? Back when I used IE there was a registry hack that got
    around it, but I haven't been able to find anything for Firefox.

    I haven't tried it out, but there is a bookmarklet that can do it.
    Just copy the entire code below on one line. Start from where it says
    javascript: and drag all the way to the end. Then open the Bookmark
    Manager, and click on New Bookmark. Give it a name and in the
    Location paste the code into it, and click OK. Now go to the web site
    and click on the bookmarklet.

    Let me know if it works or not.

    The code is:

    javascript:(function() { function R(a){ona = %22on%22+a;
    if(window.addEventListener) window.addEventListener(a, function (e) {
    for(var n=e.originalTarget; n; n=n.parentNode) n[ona]=null; }, true);
    window[ona]=null; document[ona]=null; if(document.body)
    document.body[ona]=null; } R(%22contextmenu%22); R(%22click%22);
    R(%22mousedown%22); R(%22mouseup%22); })()

    Tool \ Options \ Content \ Advanced... \ Disable or replace context

    Would you detail the IE hack, please. Thanks.

    There is an extension to do this, I forgot the exact name but it is
    "allow right click" or something similar.

    The only one that I know of is Multizilla, but thats for Mozilla Suite
    and SeaMonkey only.

  6. Have you tried Tools>>Options>>Content

    Click the Advanced button next to javascript. Uncheck the box for
    Disable or replace context menus.

    one I gave previously.

    go here:

    Hoevr over the box "restore context menu" and drag it to your Bookmarks
    Toolbar. Now, a simple click on it will disable the script that prevents
    right clicking.
