    Default Problem with right-click in Firefox

    I have seen some similar posts, but none with exactly this problem.
    I am running Win7 enterprise 64bit, Firefox 3.6.8 and Zimbra CS (can't see how to find a version number).

    In calendar view, when I right-click on an icon, I get the Windows context menu coming up on top of the Zimbra contect menu!

    I didn't realise this for ages, I thought the Zimbra menu wasn't coming up, but if I click exactly on one edge of the top menu, up comes the Zimbra menu.

    However this is not a long-term solution. Does anyone know if this is a Firefox or a Zimbra problem?

    What exactly do you mean by 'an icon'? Is it a Desktop icon or something else? Are you saying that when you click on a Desktop icon the context menu opens somewhere other than over the Desktop icon? Are you also saying this only happens in the Calendar view?

    That doesn't happen on my Win 7 Ultimate 64bit (inc. FF 3.6.8), all icon menus open in the correct place. Can you post a screenshot that shows what's happening? Have you tried doing that with a clean FF profile that has no plug-ins or add-ons in it and if you have, does it make any difference?

    BTW, you can get teh version from the Web UI with the following command in the search bar:

    Code:
    $set:get version

    my client
    Client Version: 6.0.7_GA_2473.RHEL5_64
    Client Release: 20100616202447
    Build Date: 20100616-2037

    Thanks for the quick reply, I am obviously a bit sloppy in my explanations

    What I mean is when I right click on one of the left hand menu items this happens. It happens in all windows and in the mini calendar

    I have uploaded a screenshot showing on the right how it appears when I right-click, then on the left hoiw it appears if I click on the edge of the box. I hope this makes it clearer.

    I've seen this before, but never attributed it to anything other than unintentional user error.

    The way it happens to me is that the Zimbra object I thought had focus really doesn't. I therefore wind up right-clicking on what the browser thinks is just part of the plain web page and the browser gives me the browser context popup instead of the Zimbra Javascript popup I was hoping for.

    It happens most often to me when I am right-clicking on an email in the subject list pane. I've learned there to click the subject, not the message appended to the subject line.

    In your screenshots, notice how the folder in the shot where you get the Javascript popup has a faint black border, but in the other screenshot where you get the unwanted browser pop up the folder is merely highlighted?

    That's what I see too for emails highlighted in the subject list pane.

    Not sure what if anything can be done, and at least for me it's a very minor annoyance I hadn't really thought about until I saw your post.

    Hope that helps,
    Mark

    Hi,

    I did make sure that the folder I right clicked on had focus before I clicked, same result. I think I shall post it to Firefox Bugzilla as well, and see if it is something there

    Try this setting in firefox:

    in advanced javascript settings, make sure you have checked the "contextual menu" voice.

    I have the same problem, Zimbra's context box is hidden behind firefox's box. Must be some extension I have installed, Firebug or similar.

    Regards,

    Reading this thread the message from user wizard75 provided the clue needed - Link to message.

    In Firefox click
    1) Edit -> Preferences -> Content
    2) Select "Enable JavaScript"
    3) Click "Advanced" on the right-hand side of "Enable JavaScript"
    4) You need to at least select "Disable or replace context menus", all others can be de-selected.

    This way Zimbra context menus work correctly again.
