Firefox 2 and Thunderbird 2 on a Single-Button-Mouse Mac...

If you use a Mac with a single-button mouse and you have recently upgraded to Firefox 2 or Thunderbird 2, you may have noticed that holding the button down no longer brings up the context menu. While you could use the control key when clicking, that is not a perfect and seamless solution. Instead, you can get the same behaviour back by enabling the ui.click_hold_context_menus option.

In Firefox, type about:config in the address bar and press enter. Under the filter, type in context, find the ui.click_hold_context_menus item, and double click (the line should be bold and the value should be true).

In Thunderbird, go to the Thunderbird pulldown menu and select Preferences. Under the Advanced section, choose the General tab, and click the Config Editor button. Under the filter, type in context, find the ui.click_hold_context_menus item, and double click (the line should be bold and the value should be true).

With this simple recipe, you should be back to your old browsing habits.
