Intrushield - No right-click in threat analyzer

Hello all,

I'm hoping I can find a solution to a rather annoying inconvenience while managing my Intrushield IPS sensors from a Linux workstation.

I am running McAfee Internet Security Manager (includes hotfix for latest java version support)

Relevant workstation system details:
Linux (Debian Lenny) installation.
Firefox 3.0.6.
Sun Java 1.6.0_12.


Once I open the Internet Security Manager applet from my browser, and start up the Real-time Threat Analyzer, I can not get a right-click context menu to come up inside the alert viewer. Right-click simply does not work inside this app under the system mentioned above.

When I test this from a Windows XP SP3-based workstation, using Firefox 3.0.6, Sun Java 1.6.0_12, the right-click context menu comes up allowing me to acknowledge multiple alerts at once.

I would like to know if anyone else has a similar issue, or can reproduce this problem. If others see this same behavior, I'll send it up to our McAfee Gold support as a service ticket.

I would prefer, if at all possible, to continue my management from my linux workstation, as that is where I do all of my other network security-related tasks. If there is another way to acknowledge multiple alerts without the use of a right-click, I'd love to know. That feature is the only one I've encountered that does not function properly on my Linux workstation.

Thanks in advance...

Firefox is not supported to manage IntruShield. Unfortunately, you can only use IE with the IntruShield Manager. The problems experienced with Firefox usually come down to a javascript issue.
