Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I entered SO through a Google search on a browser that I wasn't signed into SO on. I didn't bother signing in, then found a link I wanted to pursue. I right-clicked on the link, so that I could open it in another tab, but when I went into the context menu, it dissapeared.

Note that simultaneously, the Was this post useful to you line blinked (may not be directly related).

Browser: FF 6.0.2 – Lance Roberts Sep 16 '11 at 6:56
No repro with FF7 or Chrome13. – Time Traveling Bobby Sep 16 '11 at 7:28
Sidenote: If the context-menu would be deactivated via JavaScript, it would not show up at all. After it is shown, it is handled by Firefox and the underlying OS. – Time Traveling Bobby Sep 16 '11 at 7:29
This is because Jeff and co. want to prevent their logo from being stolen. Putting it into a CSS sprite was only the first step; this is the second. As the final step, the logo will be put inside a signed Java Applet that terminates all screenshot apps, and freezes the PrintScreen key. – Pëkka Sep 16 '11 at 7:39
