"taphold" context menu in PlayBook WebWorks app

I was clicking around in the 0.9.4 simulator on my very pretty jQuery Mobile styled buttons.  I ended up holding the mouse left click down and got the following context menu to appear.  



Cancel Selection

Open Link in New Tab

Add Link to Bookmarks

Copy Link

Open Link


This would be greate if any of the internal links in my WebWorks app could function outside of the app (e.g. in the browser).  It seems that only Copy and Cancel Selection make sense.  Is there a way to turn this off?  I will probably take this stock CSS for disabling user selection and try it, but thought I would throw it out to the forums first.




.unselectable {
    -moz-user-select: -moz-none;
    -khtml-user-select: none;
    -webkit-user-select: none;
    -o-user-select: none;
    user-select: none;

I'd never noticed this before. Selecting "Open link in a new tab" actually crashes the app!

Re: "taphold" context menu in PlayBook WebWorks app

The CSS workaround still doesn't work in Simulator 2.0. Is there anything at all we can do about this?

Looks like "-webkit-user-select:none" no longer functions correctly in The popup/crosscut menus don't appear, but a "teardrop" indicator does. In fact it persists through navigation, reloads, until the browser or Webworks app is closed.
