Problem with right-click on tabs

Windows 10 1909 / calibre 4.10.1

I often have a lot of tabs open and sometimes I need to close some of them.
But as soon as I right click on a tab, 9 times out of 10, the file/tab closes immediately, instead of displaying the contextual menu "Close tab/Close other tabs".

This behavior occurs both when right clicking on an active or inactive tab.
(I'm not sure but I think it appeared in v4.9.)

Anybody seeing this ?
Thanks.

Me too.

Sometime ago a few people complained about this, but the problem persists.
When you right click, calibre seems to automatically select the button hovered by the mouse. So, if you right click and move the mouse just a little bit, you might close the current tab or all the others tabs, depending on where the mouse is pointing.

Inactive tabs are extremely finicky RE mouse movement in these latest versions of Qt. In Sigil, we have to make sure you don't twitch the mouse even a little bit when attempting to activate an inactive tab. Half the time you wind up reordering them unintentionally.
