    does anyone know how come I can't copy things when i'm in an internet browser? I hold down the click thing on the mouse pad but nothing happens and I can't copy or save images. The weird thing is that I can right click on other programs. only internet browsers won't work and i've tried 3 different ones. Does anyone know what it could be?

    If you're using a macbook you can also set it to two-finger right click. I have it set this way and I lubbit :)

    system preferences
    keyboard & mouse
    trackpad

    select it there...
    basically you tap your touchpad with both fingers to bring up the "right click" menu...

    because that's not concidered "right clicking"...
    that works for something things, but it's not the proper way to do it.
