ISSUE: GO3 popup menu covered by browser contextmenu

Postby Mr.Magoo » Mon Aug 31, 2009 12:54 pm

In Firefox 3.5.2, I observed a possible issue with downloading attachements in mail.

In GO3 v3.01-stable-34, follow these steps to reproduce the behavior:

-1- select tab Email for browsing mails;

-2- select an email that has an attachement to it;

-3- in the righthand detail panel, rightclick the attachement's filename;

The expected behavior is that a GO3 menu pops up with options Download & Save.
In Firefox 3.5.2, the popup appears alright but is covered by the browsers rightclick
contextmenu. See the attached image.
You can barely identify the covered popup menu at the top left corner behind the
browser's contextmenu. If you select a non-UI output option from the browsers
contextmenu, such as "Copy Link Location", the browser's contextmenu disappears
and the popup menu becomes visible.

I tested this behavior in IE 7 and Google Chrome 2.0(172.43), and both behave as
expected, not showing the behavior described.

This issue could be CSS related.

Please check your preferences. I believe there is an option to block sites from blocking the browser's context menu in FF 3.5.

SOLVED ISSUE: GO3 popup menu covered by browser contextmenu

Postby Mr.Magoo » Mon Aug 31, 2009 8:07 pm

Merijn, you're warm. If you're using Firefox 3.5 (I did not check other Firefox versions), then follow
these steps to resolve this behavior:

-1- in Firefox, select Tools / Options;
-2- select tab Content;
-3- click button Advanced, shown to the right of option "Enable JavaScript";
-4- check option "Disable or replace context menus";
-5- click OK;
-6- click OK;

Now when clicking an attachement in a mail, the GO3 popup menu will appear by itself as expected.

I hope this will be enabled by default again!
