I don't know if this is a  bug or if it is a hardware issue on my end. It does not occur all the time but, sometimes when I right click on stuff like a url in the browser it will auto select the option that is under the pointer when the menu pops up. I at first thought this was a glitch with FF but this morning it happened in the file manager while I was looking at files on my backup external hard drive and deleted an entire folder. I restored the folder from the trash, but I thought it should be brought to the team's attention.

Wonder if you clean the cache it might help a bit .

Laptop or tower , specs might help a little bit fella .

Might try to remove usb & plug it back .

I have FF set to always use Private browsing and it empties the cache after each session, I believe.

Hi Avh,

It sounds like it could possibly be an oversensitive or failing or poor quality pointing device.

If it's a mouse that you're right clicking with can you swap it out for a different one and test it? Does the problem still happen?

If it's a mouse or touchpad does changing the sensitivity/configuration of the pointing device at
menu > settings > settings manager > mouse & touchpad
help at all?

I don't have another usb mouse to test with right now but, I did reset the mouse to default settings just to be safe. Hopefully this will fix the problem if not I will give an update. I wondered if it had anything to do with the window manager settings for window placement.

The problem with the mouse has not returned since resetting the mouse to default settings.

Hi Avj,
