Check your mouse settings in System Preferences, if they are correct... it sounds like some corruption LaunchServices. These are only cache files but can get corrupted.
Launch /Utilities/Terminal and copy & paste this at the command line to rebuild LaunchServices:
(be sure to copy the entire line it's a scroll)Code:/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
Then press return. Wait until terminal returns to the command line. Quit Terminal. After that, log out and back in or restart. Let us know
Or, use the free utiltiy OnyX to do the same via gui

No change. No drop down contextual menus for any application. Mouse preferences may have custom settings for the Magic Mouse. It worked fine with 10.7. I'm using the keyboard and 2 button from my dead G5 tower on a 2011i7 mini.

Been too busy to immediately follow up. The new mouse idea worked. Thanks. One of those simple things. I just thought it was an odd coincidence that the mouse died after the Lion upgrade...

Found out how to fix it...
Go into System Preferences and choose Trackpad. Under Point & Click, make sure Secondary click is checked and use the drop down to select "Click in bottom right corner".

It still works in 10.8
You now have to right click while holding two fingers on the touchpad. Sounds a bit awkward, bit comes natually after a couple of tries. -- two fingers and thumb of right hand....
