Highlight text, right click, deselects text?

If I want to search google for some text, I highlight it with left mouse button, right click, then, what, it de-selects the text-selection and brings up the standard context menu - why? I can’t use "search Google for “…”

I first have to select the text, then RELEASE the left mouse button, THEN right click before I can bring up the correct context menu. Is this a recent change or am I only just noticing it? It’s only 1 extra ‘click’ (or de-click), but it’s still annoying.

I’ve been trying to find extensions or user scripts to change this behaviour to work how it does in Firefox but to no avail.

Anyone know what I’m talking about / know a workaround?
