Double-right click closes window (in FireFox)

Post by alex938 » Sun Sep 09, 2018 2:11 pm

Hello,

Is it possible to set up XMouse BC to close the current FireFox window when double-clicking the right mouse button (anywhere on the page)?

I tried the 'Button Chording' option (among others) but couldn't find a way.

So far I have been using the 'Rights to Close EX' add-on, but it also disables the context menu.

Thank you,

Alex

Hi, no sorry thats not possible - XMBC does not recognize (and therefore can not distinguish between) double clicks.
The problem there is that you can't possibly know if its a single or double click until a delay after the first click - and thats probably why your plugin disables the context menu - because the single right click can not be processed until it knows if you have double clicked or not. at a minimum, to do this, there would be some lag for all right clicks, worst, the right click would have to be blocked then "simulated" which can cause problems with some applications.

Thanks,
Phil
