3.0 beta 2

oncontextmenu and FF

I'm trying to figure out why in FF it requires me to double right click to trigger the oncontextmenu event. My right click menu works fine in IE but in FF I have to double click.

I am using the "Standard Edition - Site License".

Here is some sample code:

Any Ideas?

Mike, I found it is related to :
obj.setSelectionMode("multi-row");
Cause if you remove it ( default & same as define single-cell)..or replace with single-row then FF works as IE.
But not sure wich is the best way to fix it.

Alex, is there any way to get around this in FF? I need to keep it on multi-select and I also need to have a right click menu without telling everyone they just have to double right click.

Not to mention the double right click also appears to trigger the doubleclick event which does something entirely different also.

I have same problem in FF with oncontextmenu when selection mode is set to "multi-row". A double-click is required to trigger the oncontextmenu event. Does anyone have a workaround?

When using multi-row selection mode in FF, the grid seems to consume right mouse button events without triggering the oncontextmenu, onmousedown, etc events. Any ideas?
