Setup or some strange interaction between Plasma and display driver? 
Thanks to the legacy Nvidia card and slow proprietary driver update cycle I 
have seen kind of unvisible context menu (right click). Only shadow revealed 
that Plasma actually did something. Without shadow I would think that context 
menu is missing.

Interesting feature. 
It is tied to status of scroll bar. 
I tried to scroll with a mouse wheel after there was something to scroll using 
Ctrl, Alt, and Shift keys, both left and right, but nothing happened. I can't 
see any options in Settings > Configure Shortcuts, nor in Configure Window 
Behavior that configure this. The former I checked just make sure it is not 
misplaced there.
