right-click in Slitherlink

For the last couple of days, I have been unable to place X's on a Slitherlink puzzle by right-clicking on a square's edge. Instead, I get a solid line.  I'm using Firefox under Windows 8.  Funny thing is, Slitherlink plays fine for me at work. I'm also using Firefox there as a browser, but Linux as an OS. I haven't changed my browser settings on my home machine, and refreshing Firefox didn't fix the problem.  I don't notice a problem with right-clicks on other sites.  I don't even see any odd behavior when I right-click on other objects on a Slitherlink page. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I'll look into it, but I can't come up with a reason why it wouldn't work on Windows 8. Does the same behavior happen on the Masyu page? In any case, you can hold down the shift key while clicking to produce x's as well.
