Right Clicking Stops Working
Hello,

If I have several tabs open in IE8 for a while and I'm using a right click
to save pictures or open new tabs from links, the right click menu sometimes
stops displaying. If I open a new IE8 window (not tab) the right click menu
is still not displayed. I eventually have to copy my url address to another
browser; Firefox, Chrome, or Opera to keep the links and then close out all
IE8 windows and start over. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Rich

Does it happen on all web sites or just some web sites? If it's just some
web sites it's possible that the site uses Javascript to disable the
rightclick context menu on the page.

If it's all web sites, start IE8 in No Add-ons mode and see if the problem
persists.

Good luck,

Donald Anadell
