Ok, Im sure lots of you know this but I just figured it out and decided to share it. All you have to do to pull up the "right click menu" on Mac OSX is: click and hold. Just click the mouse wherever you want and hold it down, the menu will appear. I hope this helps someone.

Yep, I use that feature in Firefox a lot. Too bad, the mac os x does take advantage to this feature too much.

ie. tap left click, button right click?

Yep, you can set it the way you want.

You can also have 'tap on the left side -left click' 'tap on the right side -right click'
