Contextual menu appears when left/primary-clicking a username

Reported by Ron DeVera | August 18th, 2010 @ 08:13 AM | in Version 0.10

When left/primary-clicking a username, the contextual menu appears. The old behavior made more sense -- click a username to open the profile in the browser, or right/secondary-click a username to see the contextual menu.

If it matters, this is on OS X 10.6.

    I did this on purpose, but I kind of agree, and kind of don't. Maybe
    it's part of being a desktop app, and I'm being influenced by mobile
    app interfaces.

    I guess for me, I wanted the main click to provide options for the
    user. Some of those options aren't available if they click and go to
    the web profile.

    Maybe the solution is to have a good in-app profile popup.

    Yeah, a good profile popup (#65) would solve this very nicely. If we have a basic one for 0.10, could we trigger the popup when left-clicking usernames, and restore the contextual menu to right-clicking? The popup would let you trigger a dropdown with items from the contextual menu.

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    I switched this back to the context menu
