Many of these sites seem under the impression that disabling the context menu in your browser is a good way to keep you from stealing their content. But disabling the context menu in your browser also deprives you of a lot of other tools.
Even better, you can create a bookmark out of that code so it’s always just one click away. Select the code above and drag it to your browser’s toolbar (or wherever you store bookmarks). Rename it something that makes sense to you, but leave the code intact for the URL.
Enable Right-Clicking and Copying on All Sites with a Browser Extension
In Chrome, we recommend installing the RightToCopy extension. As its name suggests, it does more than just enable right-clicking. It also enables text selection and copying on sites that have disabled those functions, and even removes text that web sites inject into the text you copy (such as “Read More at”).
In Firefox, grab the RightToClick extension. Like the Chrome extension, RightToClick also enables text selection and copying. It also offers more configuration options than its Chrome counterpart, allowing you to control exactly what page functionality it affects. This helps ensure that you don’t remove any functionality you actually want.
And, of course, there are more comprehensive script blocking extensions available, such as NoScript (Firefox) and ScriptSafe (Chrome). Extensions like these block all scripts from running on any web pages unless you enable it. Both are worth looking into for a little added piece of mind, but note that they can be problematic on sites that use scripts for useful features.
And that’s it. Disabling right-clicking on web pages may be only an occasional problem, but it’s annoying when it happens. It’s also super easy to fix.
