It can be very annoying to visit a website that disables your mouse right click. Some websites disable the use of the right click to protect their content (images & articles) from getting stolen. Though, what if you want to keep the content with you for studying or ease of access purposes? Moreover, disabling the right click also means you will not be able to access other options of the context menu like “Inspect element” or extension buttons, in case you are a developer.
Thankfully, there are many different ways to enable the right-click menu on any website and also copy content from websites that block it. Follow the article to see how you can enable right-click on any website.
If you’re using Firefox: Firefox removed this option from its settings, but you can use SettingSanity add-on to get this option back along with some others.
But Wait! Do you want to Copy Just Text from a Website?
If your only intention is to copy text from a website that is blocking it, then you don’t need to disable anything. Just press “Ctrl + P” to open printing options and copy text from the print preview. Otherwise, you can press “Ctrl + U” to access a web page’s source code to look for the required text (Browser’s “Find” [Ctrl + F] option will help).
Use a Third-Party Extension
