Trackpad context menu unusable


It’s impossible to select anything from the context menu (right/ctrl click) when using a macbook air trackpad. The context menu disappears after you release the button, and anything that you were hovering(selecting) while you were holding the button pressed it ignored. As if the context menu was simply cancelled.

Here’s a gif of it:

How can I select something from the context menu using a track pad that does not have separate right/left click buttons on it? I can’t seem to be able to group or make things components which is really annoying.


Are you using Safari? See:

Ahh, the two finger click worked – amazing! I’ve used a macbook air for some 7 years and never came across this.

And yes I was/am using Safari.
