The menu you said is displayed seems to match the "yellowButtonNoviceMenu". 

So, can you make sure you do not have the noviceMode preference enabled?

Also, which image are you using? In the images I tried, noviceMode disables various keyboard shortcuts, like for evaluating expressions, but the menu entries were still there (which probably is a bug, they should be removed from the menu if the short cuts are disabled).
