The context menu (you named it "details menu") is for controlling the visibility of columns. This menu is important for the "Details" view but (more or less) superfluous for the the other three modes. I'd consider this a bug. :bug:

Actually, I wonder why views "Small thumbnails", "Thumbnails" and "Big thumbnails" have a heading with columns "Name", "Size", and so on at all. Only use of this heading that I can see is "sorting" but I think this is not really an important feature and could be achieved differently and in a more intuitive way.

O.k., this was my assumption - see above. But it seems strange to me to use headings which have no other use and meaning than sorting. E.g. MS Explorer has a separate toolbar button for sorting in those views that don't have headings and columns.

The missing context menu when choosing "Details" (=Details view) is a bug, right?
