When I right-click to place an x, the right-click menu pops up. Is it possible to disable this? I have a hard time with the shift-click or double-click because of a disability, and I can't play as long that way. (

Ah, no, sorry, with the way the puzzle is implemented there isn't any reliable way to handle right-clicking, it'll always bring up the menu. If I rewrote it in Java or something similar, it might be possible, but not until then - and I don't currently have any plans to do that.

Checking the source from puzzle-loop.com might be instructive - they seem to have figured out how to disable the right-click menu, and also let you click and drag to mark multiple edges, which is handy.

Nice idea... but doesn't work in Firefox which is the browser I use!

Hmmm... that's weird then. I tried it in Firefox & IE, and the right-clicking worked only in IE. Maybe it's affected by one of the extensions I use.

Well, for what it's worth... my extensions:
bugmenot 1.3
submitToTab 0.3.3
Tab Mix Plus 0.3.0.5
ReloadEvery 1.5.1
Adblock Plus 0.7
Download Statusbar 0.9.4
Live HTTP Headers 0.12
Wizz RSS News Reader 2.1.2.0
VideoDownloader 1.0
Firefox 1.5.0.3 on linux

Out of curiosity, you tried that site and it didn't work for you?  Or you tried using their code already and it didn't work on your site?

All I tried was one of the puzzles on the site... it was fine in IE but right-clicking in Firefox brought up my menus as usual.

Still, if it works for most people, I'll try it anyway!

It should work in Internet Explorer now... try right-clicking on puzzles; it should have the same effect as if you were holding shift down or double-clicking/clicking twice normally. Still can't get it to work on my Firefox though...
