When I press alt and left-click, I get the halos, when I press alt and 
right-click, I get the halos, too. With either ctrl or both I get nothing.

And I assume the swapMouseButtons preference is disabled?

Yes, that happens when swapMouseButtons preference is disabled, when I 
enable it, I get the context menu instead of the halos for right-click, 
alt-right-click and alt-left-click.
