With Internet Explorer I can right-click on a Google Map and it pops up
a special Google menu which has a very useful (to me) choice at the
bottom: "What's here?". Clicking on that returns the latitude and
longitude of the selected point in the Google search box. I've been told
by other users that this also works with Firefox 3.5.
I'm running SeaMonkey 1.1.17, and even though the cursor changes from
the normal arrow to a hand when I'm over a Google map, right-clicking
brings up the same normal right-click menu I get any time I right-click
over a picture. If I right-click a second time in the same place I do
get the special Google menu, but when I release the button the Google
menu immediately disappears and is replaced by the usual menu before I
can click on "What's here?".
This is on a Windows XP Pro SP2 system using a Microsoft Wireless Mouse,
the IntelliMouse Explorer 2.0. I don't know if this mouse is related to
the problem or not. Is there some setting that needs to be adjusted to
get this working correctly? Thanks!
No problem here, SM 1.1.16 on WinXP SP3.
When I right-click on a map (even though the hand is showing), I
immediately get the Google context menu, and it's easy to choose "What's
here?" or any of the other options. If I do, I get info on the location
I pointed to when I clicked, not necessarily on the location I searched.
And it does re-search on the lat/long coordinates as you say.
War doesn't determine who's right, just who's left.
