How do you capture mouse events in firefox


To capture mouse events in Firefox, you can use the same event handlers that are used in other browsers, such as onclick, onmousedown, and onmouseup.

Here is an example of how you can use the onclick event handler to handle a mouse click event:

document.addEventListener('click', event => {
  console.log('Mouse clicked');

You can also use the addEventListener() method to attach event listeners to specific elements on the page. For example:

const button = document.getElementById('my-button');
button.addEventListener('click', event => {
  console.log('Button clicked');

In this example, the event listener will be called only when the user clicks on the element with the ID my-button.

Keep in mind that you can use the event object that is passed to the event handler function to get more information about the event, such as the position of the mouse cursor when the event occurred.

For example, you can use the clientX and clientY properties of the event object to get the x and y coordinates of the mouse cursor relative to the viewport:

document.addEventListener('click', event => {
  console.log(`Mouse clicked at ${event.clientX}, ${event.clientY}`);
