Joomla backend menu - scroll and no right click

Post by Krki » Tue Jul 26, 2016 8:56 am

Hello

1.
I've noticed that recent Joomla 3.6.0 version, with new changes in menu rendering, an option to open menu items in new tab is completely gone from items in Joomla backend menu.
"Right click - Open in new tab" is gone from FireFox right click menu and CTRL + Click opens clicked item in both current and new tab. I'm used to have several tabs opened in backend because it's more convenient and faster and I'm sure that I'm not the only one.

Is it possible to get "right click - open in new tab" option or ability that CTRL + Click opens new tab back in Joomla backend menu?


2.
Scrolling items in Components menu
This option is usable for ppl with smaller screens, but many users also have bigger screens where all items could be shown without scrollbar?
So why not improve it even further so that system shows all items without scrollbar if all of them can fit in window height?

Both suggestions are just small changes and it could be called nitpicks, but having fully functional UI is very important for saving time.

What do you think?

Regards

For point #1 - is this behavior only for menu items or is it also happening on article pages (or other items such as modules, for example)?

Hi
Only for Joomla menu items in backend.
Previously:
I'm editing article and if I want to remain editing it and if I need to something else lets say create new menu item, I would just go in Menus and right click and ctrl click it for editing it in new tab. Or anything else.
Now:
I need to copy "www.mywebsitename.com/administrator/" click to open new tab, paste this into it and then to proceed.
This wastes time.

Hi

The right click issue was only in firefox for windows and has in the last few days been fixed and will be in the 3.6.3 release
