Annoying things about websites

I was looking up something that I was going to post about, and found a site with some kind of annoying feature that wouldn't let me right click to open a new window. It gave me some of "Copyright 2009" message like I was going to steal the code from it or something? There are so many ways around it too, like using another browser than IE for instance. The page I was on wouldn't even let me do a "Control F" to find a certain word or topic. :horse:

I have issues with 'back button traps'. on some sites i read as part of google searches (no porn or whatnot) if i try to get back, my browser keeps reloading the same damn page. what possesses webmasters to keep someone from leaving their page and what positive purpose could it serve?

A lot of pages with stupid flash stuff on 'em break keyboard commands, and it's very annoying. The right click thing doesn't affect my Firefox browser for Linux, with the option in red below disabled:

Now I would never know that from just looking at those options. Wish they'd be more descriptive with that.
