Consider the following scenario:
For example, you may encounter the following issues:
When you right-click an element in Internet Explorer 7, and then a shortcut menu appears, the Mshtml.dll module (code name "Trident") caches the element that you click. All executed commands use the cached element as the primary target before the Mshtml.dll module tries other options, such as the current selection. InfoPath sets the current selection in an attempt to control which elements are used by the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands. However, the cached element prevents InfoPath from using the current selection. Therefore, the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands do not work correctly on an InfoPath element if you use the shortcut menu.

322756To resolve this issue in InfoPath and in other applications, this update introduces a feature-control registry key that disables element caching for shortcut menus. By default, this feature-control registry key is turned off to preserve compatibility in Internet Explorer and in other Mshtml.dll module hosts that do not have this fix. This feature-control registry key has more precise control over which objects are targeted by shortcut menu operations. This control helps resolve this issue in applications that host the Mshtml.dll module and that need this update. However, when you set this feature-control registry key, the host application must exactly control the targets of their shortcut menu operations.
