Anything you can suggest to avoid those moments, of which I'm anticipating many if it's a Qt thing?
3.99.5 on Win 10 1809 works for me with 10 tabs open. How many tabs are open when it doesn't work.

I never knew the feature existed, when I want a 'clean slate' I hold ctrl+w down until they're all gone

I'm on Win 10 Home 1903. When I first noticed the problem I probably had about 20+ tabs open and couldn't figure out why the context menu wasn't coming up. Because I had so many open I didn't initially realise I was actually deleting tabs.

When I retested I tried with just a few tabs open, 3-4. It didn't make any difference to my problem. I still haven't figured out if there's a magic tab area where I'll always trigger the menu. It's as if the right-click auto-triggers option 1 on the context menu.

I think I have it - if I press the right button for a very short length of time (i.e. a light momentary tap) it deletes the tab, if I hold the right button down for a bit I get the menu.

Right click context menu's normally 'pop' when the button is released - the one in question seems to be popping when a the button is held down.

Try press-and-hold the right button down in the message box here - you won't get the popup menu until you release the button. When I used to write windows stuff in 'C++' with the WTL libraries there was a separate event for mouse button down and mouse button up and maybe mouse button hold.

Middle click also deletes current tab.

I'll stick to hold Ctrl+W until there all gone.

Well played, BR! right-click-hold should do the trick.

jackie_w, it might be worth trying a new mouse.. This sorta sounds to me like the extra fanthom clicks you can get when mice clickers wear out.

I just tested it on 3.47.1 and 2.85, seems to be the same everywhere, all right click context menus in calibre pop on a long press (I think that's the term). Everything else I tried (Windows, xplorer², notepad++, Chrome, Sigil, Falkon) pop on button up - Sigil and Falkon use Qt. Interesting.
