    Control + Click :)

    Also if you press Command+Click on a link in Firefox, it opens in a new tab...

    you hold down the button with one finger on the trackpad and move it across the text so it is highlighted. then you put 2 fingers on the trackpad and click on the highlighted text to bring up the right-click menu, then you select copy.

    it's pretty natural...

    ok whenver i highlight the text i use two finger to click inside the track pad and nothing happens, i also tried highlighting the text and clicking both fingers on the clicker like the two finger method to bring up a new tab but that just makes the highlighted part go away and i am lookin at normal text still dont know how to bring up the right click menu (i.e. whenver u click the mouse on the rick click it brings up the right click menu)

    Hold down control, then click the button. Don't use two fingers to click on the trackpad.
