I'm having an issue where I right click and as soon as I release the button, it selects the option where the mouse is like I left-clicked. Also, context menus are appearing in the middle of where my mouse is. Attached is an imaged that shows what I'm saying: See the mouse in the middle of the context menu?

  • I had this problem. Rebooting the pc solved it.

I don't know if this is an firefox bug or not but there are more topics about this

Firefox right button on selected text start Inspect Tool not right button menu

and Firefox right click issue

Also what version of firefox are you using? I have version 62.03 and got no problems with the mouse button/context menu for now.

Edit: got a litte fix go to -> about:config and change ui.context_menus.after_mouseup to true This fix the problem for now

  • I confirm this bug with Pantheon packages on openSUSE Leap 15.1 and Firefox 60 ESR. The about:config fix works.

I have the same exact problem on my laptop. The roundabout way is to HOLD the right-click on a MOUSE. Then the menu stays open and you can select the proper option. Quite frustrating, TBH. FF 62.0.3
