Some sites prohibit the use of the right-click or context-menu.
I think it is illegitimate: many extensions offer functionalities through the context-menu, for instance. And if content is send to the user, there is no reason not to be able to save it.
Allow right-click is a Chrome extension I wrote to work around this limitation. It does it best to restore the default context-menu on many items of the page.
Visit Google chrome extensions and press the « Installation » button
Once the extension is installed, every page you open will have it’s « protection » removed.
This can damage features on some sites, such as Yahoo! mail. That’s why, there is a white list in the Preferences page. Sites listed in this white liste won’t be affected by the extension.
Known bugs and limitations
- Known limitations are listed on the project page on Google code.
- Known bugs are listed on the bug tracker on Google code
The site I visit is still blocked
There are many elements that can be blocked. To optimize performance, I have decided to reset only some of them (see Details).
If a page is still blocked, please
- ensure that there si no open issue about this
- and file a new Issue. Don’t forget to mention the page and the element, or (even better) to inspect the DOM to see which elements has its oncontextmenu event overriden.
