How to bypass the right-click blocking protection on sites
Certain websites owners don't like it when people copy their stuff and since it's easier to prevent than to react, they disable the option to use your right-click button while you're on their sites. As much as I understand their right to protect their data, there are times when you want to quickly share a joke or a link taken from the site, and you just can't. This won't only annoy the user, but also affect the site's traffic, so I decided to show you how to bypass the right-click blocking protection.
- using a browser extension;
- visiting the website through a proxy site.
I will describe each of them and then you can decide which one you want to use.
Extensions and add-ons
When it comes to bypassing the right-click blocking protection, I prefer a tool called Allow Copy. This extension is light and effective; all you have to do is to click its icon whenever you're on the website that annoys you and you will instantly be able to use the right-click menu to copy and paste texts, or even save images. If, for some reason, you don't like Allow Copy there are several other options that you can try out such as Seo Enable Copy or RightToCopy.
If you don't want to put in the extra effort into modifying your browser's settings or installing a third-party solution, there's a third option: you can use a proxy site. Basically this means that you will have to visit the website that's annoying you with its right-click protection through a different site. Proxy sites are quite useful as they mask your IP and they disable all the protections from the websites that you visit through them, but they also have a major downfall: the browsing speed is greatly decreased as you need to use their servers. If you're interested in this solution, I recommend trying Skull Proxy, but the most popular one seems to be Hide My Ass, so you can try that one out as well.

From my experience, you can do it in Firefox by holding Shift (or maybe it's Ctrl) while right clicking.
