Forum shouldn't hijack right-click

New forum is OK, but I find it extremely annoying that it’s hijacking my right-click. The way I use forums, I often view a list of topics and “open in new tab” each one that I’m interested in, and then come back later and read them. This is especially useful when a person has a slow connection, and each tab may take a few seconds to load.

Peplink, can you please disable this hijacking feature or at least give us an option to turn it off?

thanks!

I just realized that right-click is only blocked in some situations:

  • main forum view: not blocked
  • notifications list: blocked
  • inside a thread: blocked

the inconsistency is confusing.

Can you simply use ctrl-regular click ? that is what i do. opens new tab.

I’m on macOS and control-click is the same thing as right click (in almost all cases).

The problem is it’s inconsistent.

On the main forum page: https://forum.peplink.com

  • the list of topics : i can right-click and “open in new tab”
  • other links, such as TRENDING, UNREAD, CATEGORIES, Create Topics, View All, etc: none of these can be right-clicked.

Do you see the same thing?
