Bizzare right click behavior in Firfox 3.0.6

Its been quite a while that I am noticing a weird problem with my firefox since I upgraded to Ubuntu 8.1 where a right click within the browser can at times select one of the random functions from the menu options. Its just very annoying at times, so finally today as I got time I started looking at fixing it.

While searching it on the web I found quite a number of people having the same problem as me but there wasn’t a proper fix available to it. Tried several different things and then finally after installing a Firefox addon “Firegestures” it all started behaving normally.

If anyone having the same problem do give “Firegestures” a shot 🙂
