Is it possible to disable right click in FF? I did insert the code, but it only works in I.E. My client wants this feature to protect copyright written material. Pesonally, I do not care for this feature. I would prefer a water mark.

Its a complete waste of time. You could look at the source code, find the url to an image, type it in the address bar and save the result.

Alternatively, disabling javascript will work. I'm sure there are other ways too.

This seems to work:

<img ... oncontextmenu="return false;">

..until you try it in more than one particular browser.

The question was only about one particular browser, Firefox.

I'm a fan of the transparent GIF overlay. That way they think they've saved the image, but noooo. . .

What ever kind of protection you try to involve in your page with no right click is pointless, you will only fool a newbie... source is always reachable you can also copy screen or acces cache ...
If you really want to protect your images, put a copyright on them, that about all you can do except not puting them at all ...

Apologies, jollyfmcats, I reaally should try to keep up. Looks like oncontext menu is supported by Mozilla. ( [lab.artlung.com...] ).

Not by Opera, it seems, but it still means very reasonable coverage.

I had a feeling the SP2 disabled this feature, but I can't test that.

Firefox has an option ignore JS code that disables the context menu, so you can't rely on an oncontextmenu="return false;".

kaled is right, it's a waste of time. I don't even have a right mouse button and can quite easily copy anything protected that way ;)

or edit with front page(IE)
or print screan copy paste in Photo shop

There is a phenominaly complex way ...involving only delivering images if the user has .js accepted and banning all bots from your image files and crypting the calls to the .js files and crypting the paths to your image files and etc etc etc and hacking the user computer to prevent screen capture in all browsers etc etc..and htaccess restrictions ..

Been there done that ..stopped doing it ( most browsers thought my site was installing malware ;) ..locked up visitors machines and required reboot of their system so they could get back their clipboard facility ..;)

very very bad for PR ..( public relations ..not page rank )

Use watermarks ..life is complicated enough as it is ..
