Right click on issue key in Agile board doesnt open up in new tab


When we use the mouse right click on the issue key in the agile board it gets the issue to open up pn the RHS at first.Then again if you right click on the Issue key in the agile board as before the option comes like "Open in new tab"...etc.

I dont remember correctly but is this an expected behaviour or is something wrong?

We use jira 5.2.10.

It seems to be the right behaviour that - Right click would be showing browser options while left click will pop up the Issue Detail View on the right hand side.


You could also do a Middle Click (mousewheel or center button) that normally opens any link into a new tab. Without first needing to select it in the menu options.

Best regards,
