When I right-click on an image in the WYSIWYG I get the browser right-click menu (save image as, open in new tab, etc) instead of the menu common to all these editors (insert/edit image, etc). This happens in both FF and Chrome (latest versions). I'm using SilverStripe 3.1.

Is it a permissions thing, do I need to edit some file, does anyone know please?!

Many thanks in advance.

Just select the image and click on the toolbar button.

If you really want the right-click menu to work, put this in your _config.php

$editorConfig = HtmlEditorConfig::get("cms");

You will still be able to ctrl-rightclick to get the native browser menu.
