Modifying Firefox’s Right Click Menu

When first released, one of Firefox’s defining features was tabs, so multiple websites can be viewed in multiple tabs instead of multiple windows. When you right-click on a link in Firefox, however, the Open Link in New Window option is still there right above the Open Link in New Tab. For users speed clicking their way through the options, one small slip of the mouse can give you a new window instead of a new tab. But for die-hard tab users, there is a way to remove the New Window option from the Firefox right click. Mark O’Neill of MakeUseOf.com explains how.
