just thought that i would let someone know about this ... there's a script at this page: (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex9/noright2.htm)

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex9/noright2.htm that is supposed to be able to stop someone from right-clicking on the pic to steal it or whatever

i'm not 100% if this is a bug or just an easy way to defeat the disabled ability of right-clicking on a pic ... you guys can decide

after going to this page (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex9/noright2.htm) that has the script ... if you right-click just beside the pic on some white space (and keep the right-click button down) and drag the mouse over the pic and then release the right-click button while over the pic ... you will get the right-click context menu the same as if you were able to right-click on the pic itself

just thought that i would tell someone the good news ... now there will be a slew of right-clickers out there stealing all the pics that they were never before able to steal

The method you describe is not the only way: there are many. The simplest in Firefox is to right-click on the image and, leaving the cursor where it is, press the spacebar to dismiss the alert box. The context-menu will now appear at the location of the cursor.

Another, for any browser, is to run the following bookmarklet:


javascript:document.onmousedown=document.onmouseup=null;for(var i=0;document.images.length>i;++i)document.images[i].onmousedown=null;void(0);Similar bookmarklets can be used for every other context-menu blocker ever written.
