Hello Experts.

We have a successful example of suppressing right click menu in FireFox in TinyMCE. We attached an image.

How to reproduce this behavior?
Note, we apparently did not modify security settings in FireFox and don't want to.

We tried or looked on following examples for your reference, but were unable to make them working in FireFox:

Thank you.

Examples:
//simple cure from: http://www.w3schools.com/dhtml/tryit.asp?filename=trydhtml_noright
//does not work in FF:
var preventRightClickInFireFox=function(e)
{
      if(e.button===2)
      {
            e.preventDefault();
            e.stopPropagation();
            //alert('no native menu is not disabled yet in FF, we are working on this ...');
            e.cancelBubble = true;
        return false;

      }
}
var preventContentMenuInFireFox=function(e)
{
            e.preventDefault();
            e.stopPropagation();
            e.cancelBubble = true;
console.log('trying to prevent in content menu');
        return false;
}
document.onclick=preventRightClickInFireFox;
//"modern browsers may not let to disable content menu"

document.onContextMenu=preventContentMenuInFireFox;
