Zenfolio.com replaces right-click context menus

Post by mazling » Tue Sep 15, 2009 11:03 am

Firefox 3.5.3, NoScript 1.9.8.86, website allowed to run scripts, option to enable replacement of context menus NOT checked in Firefox options.
URL: http://ffennema.zenfolio.com/p773998185 ... #h36fa5c16
Not allowing scripts for this site does not allow any images to be displayed, so it's not really an option. Right-clicking the main image gives a three-item black and grey context menu that does not belong to Firefox. It isn't a huge problem but it is unexpected - plus images can sometimes be scaled where viewing the original resolution would be preferable, which is not possible without (IMHO unnecessary) faffing around.

Any/all help and suggestions appreciated, as is this excellent extension. I could not do without it ;-)

Options → Content → right from the "Enable Javascript" checkbox the button "Advanced…":

BTW: Has nothing to do with NS therefore this thread is in the wrong subforum.

That option is unchecked - I have already stated that above...

dhouwn speaks basic truth - the site is one of those rare things, one that's entirely run by js - both layout and accessibility - and NS, while it can advise of dangerous scripting and hold such scripts up for the user to confirm, can't alter scripts as they run.

I would run a mile from using the site; that's active content it's serving and I have no clue what much of the scripting is doing.
If the publisher doesn't want me to view his work without my having more control of my browser, then he misses out on me as a viewer :-/

This thread may be better placed in the general forum or the web forum.

Obviously I don't do enough browsing! Thanks to both of you for the help, feel free to cosign this thread to the abyss :-)
