Once in a while I hit a page that is right click disabled. This is more of a nuisance than a problem, but I was wondering how this was accomplished, and if there is a way around it.

I use Firefox to surf eBay, I like to click on an item, then open sellers other items in tabs. It makes it very easy to look at lots of items quickly. When I go to one sellers auction http://cgi.ebay.com/...1QQcmdZViewItem, it says right click is disabled by deadzoom. That is the image host, and I am only right clicking on the link to "sellers other auctions". I did not even know eBay pages could be "manipulated" by 3rd parties.

I am not very knowledgeable about computer workings, but is there a way I can disable the disabling feature?

Curiosity made me wonder, and I thank anyone in anticipation of a reply.

Ben

hi The "right click disable" is usually a bit of Java script that can be included in the html code for the page concerned. The author of the page included this code (presumably provided by deadzoom) and therefore you cannot "disable what has been disabled! (after all it is the page owners code!) There are some workarounds if you really need to see the actual code, but for your stated purposes of comparison, they are more trouble than they are worth. (view source, bring up html code, copy and paste into a wysiwyg editor etc etc) Regards paws

Its probably a bit of java script thats preventing you. Web designers do try and use different scripts to prevent right clicks and image theft but unfortunalty there is no proper way around for them to prevent this, all you need to do is turn off scripting on that page. I use opera browser here and right click is ok on the link you provided and I am able to save the images if I wished. There is an extension for the firefox browser called no-script, try intergrating this into your firefox browser and see if this helps you.

Just remember to respect and observe any copyright laws that the owner has over an image. At a guess ebay is the owner of any images used on their site, I would advise that you check over their policy in order not to infringe it.

You guys are great! I just DL the no script, it did the trick and also looks like a nice safety feature, thank you very much. This place is incredible. I have spent probably 20 hrs reading and learning. The right click was not intended to copy the images. Dad was a patent/copyright attorney, I seem to have heard about this before...... B)

Use Opera's browser. I assume they have this built in because i never get that problem on those sorts of pages. Even the Ebay page didn't stop me right clicking. Thanks to Hammer51 for the add-on

I use IE7 and Firefox myself, I use IE7 on certain trusted sites only, while opera is used for general searching and browsing.
