Overthewire natas 7 The hint for this page says that the right click on the page has been blocked. When you do the right click a prompt is generated stating that the right click is disabled.
Mostly Javascript controls the events on the page. So an event like a right click is disabled because of Javascript. There are many ways to get rid of this problem:

  1. You can disable javascript by going to the settings of the browser.
  2. You can install a plugin called Web Developer. It contains different tools. You can directly go to Tools > View source code from there. Or you can also disable javascript using that plugin in the Disable tab.
