How to Enable Right Click on Any Webpage or Website

Why Right Click?

Right clicking your mouse can be very useful when surfing the web. It allows you to save images on webpages to your hard disk, to view source of a particular webpage, to download background music from a blog (when website code isn't complicated), and much more.

Now days, many websites and blogs doesn't allow you to right click on their websites. I studied HTML and basic web designing, so I like to look at webpages' HTML codes when I find a new interesting website. And it makes me angry to find out that I can't right click. But as you know, there is always a way to get around something. This hub will teach you how to right click on web sites where it's not allowed.  

Follow These Simple Steps to Right Click

  1. Click on [Favorites] on the top of the browser.
  2. Click on [Add to Favorites...].
  3. When Add Favorite box pops up, enter a name that you can easily remember later such as Right Click. Then click [ok].
  4. Click on [Favorites].
  5. Find the Right Click button you just created, then right click on it. Then click [Properties].
  6. On the Web Document tab, copy and paste the following code:
    javascript:function r(d){d.oncontextmenu=null;d.onselectstart=null;d.ondragstart=null;d.onkeydown=null;d.onmousedown=null; d.body.oncontextmenu=null;d.body.onselectstart=null;d.body.ondragstart=null;d.body.onkeydown=null; d.body.onmousedown=null;};function unify(w){r(w.document);if(w.frames.length>0){for(var i=0;i<w.frames.length;i++){try{unify(w.frames[i].window);}catch(e){}};};};unify(self);
  7. Click [OK]. A message will popup stating "The protocol "javascript" does not have a registered program. Do you want to keep this target anyway?". Click [Yes]. This won't do any harm to your computer.
  8. Now you are ready to right click on any webpages. Whenever you find a webpage you cannot right click, just go to [Favorites] and click on the [Right Click] button you've created.
  9. Enjoy!

For firefox you just add the current or any web page to bookmarks and go right click on it, rename it as hyunchang said and paste the code in the location window.

Go to Tools -- Options.

Go to the Content tab.

Here you'll see a lot of checkboxes. Look at the bottom one that says "Enable Javascript". Click the Advanced button next to it.

Now you've got a little window with even more checkboxes! There is one in there that says Disable or replace context menus. Uncheck this box.

Below for Firebox Browser

Go to Tools -- Options.

Go to the Content tab.

Here you'll see a lot of checkboxes. Look at the bottom one that says "Enable Javascript". Click the Advanced button next to it.

Now you've got a little window with even more checkboxes! There is one in there that says Disable or replace context menus. Uncheck this box.

So as to say when you are using Mozilla Firefox if you wanna to copy something from your prefer website, navigate to Options - Content - then uncheck Enable JavaScript.. it actually when I browse this hub aside from putting that JavaScript i just disabled running JavaScripts to my prefer website to copy text from it.

If you still can not COPY use this:

In Firefox: Tools - Options - Content and then uncheck Enable JavaScript!

Another way to do this is to use above code, and then mouse right click and choose View Page Source. From there you can COPY everything you like.
