Re: Desktop Right Click While Firefox Working

Welcome to Arch Linux.

What desktop environment / window manager are you using?
Desktop or laptop?
Touch-pad or mouse?

Re: Desktop Right Click While Firefox Working

What's the hardware you are using? Especially the graphics card/driver. Also, does this happen only when Firefox is running?

Re: Desktop Right Click While Firefox Working

Do you have hardware acceleration enabled in firefox? If yes, then try disabling that. Also, are you using nouveau or nvidia binary drivers? If disabling hardware acceleration doesn't help, try switching your graphics drivers.

Re: Desktop Right Click While Firefox Working

Disabled hardware acceleration in firefox but problem occurs again. When i install arch linux i had these option to install;

1) mesa-libgl  2) nvidia-304xx-libgl  3) nvidia-340xx-libgl  4) nvidia-libgl

i install 1 and there was 2 option again and than i choose default. i guess, i've not installed nouveau or nvidia. how to check?

Re: Desktop Right Click While Firefox Working

That means that you are using the nouveau driver. Try switching to the nvidia binary drivers and see if the problem persists.

Re: Desktop Right Click While Firefox Working

don't create an autoconfig (remove the files it created, they usually do more harm than good), install nvidia-libgl, and did you reboot in between as pacman told you to when you installed the nvidia package?

You should probably first fix your space constraint issues and come back to this topic once you have enough room on root to actually run something (assuming we are talking the same machine as in this topic)

Re: Desktop Right Click While Firefox Working

i solved to partition problem after that i removed the mesa-libgl and install the nvidia-libgl but when i reboot the system i got white screen with this message  "Oh no! Something has gone wrong."  and logout button.

* I noticed this right click thing happens to all working windows area. If firefox for example let say in the left corner (and minimized) when i click other areas right click working normally but when i click firefox area that were  that bug happens again.
