I am not sure if this is something new, an over sensitive right mouse button, ageing memory or plain finger trouble!
I have noticed recently that a pop-up box with various Google options - Back, Forward, Print, Save, etc - appears on right clicking. The problem is that it is a nuisance as I am not consciously right clicking - I think that as a result of a bit of arthritis, using my index finger tends to move the middle one down one as well. For whatever reason it pops up too often.
Is there any way of turning that option off?

Have you tried Ghostery. It has worked for me on other sites that use pop-ups.

Is this a USB or Bluetooth connected mouse?

Do you have another mouse to try?

Are you familiar with how to use 'Device Manager' to check if there are any driver issues with USB, Bluetooth, or Mouse?

I am guessing your in google chrome as your web browser, and that you are right clicking? That will always bring up that menu. If your having issues using your machine, try a specialized mouse.
