About this Add-on
In progress, but with limitations due to lack of new APIs from Firefox side.
This extension allows to open links in new tabs with right-click directly and using “long” left-click.
This is very useful for touchpads on notebooks and for mice without middle button.
It works with links, bookmarks, history items and images.
Hold any modifier (Ctrl, Alt or Shift) during right-click to show context menu.
Or just wait (without releasing the button) for 0.5 seconds (configurable).
F2 or Tools – Right Links (or simply click on icon in status bar) to switch on/off.
Also you can add toolbar button (View – Toolbar – Customize).
There are some hidden hidden options in about:config page:
extensions.rightlinks.showContextMenuTimeout – timeout before context menu will be shown (in milliseconds), use -1 to disable this feature.
extensions.rightlinks.longLeftClickTimeout – delay for “long” left-click.
extensions.rightlinks.notifyOpenTime – hide pop-up message after this time is over, use -1 to disable.
extensions.rightlinks.loadInWindow, extensions.rightlinks.loadInWindow.left – open links in new windows instead of new tabs (some features don't work!).
extensions.rightlinks.filesLinksMask – mask of links to files (use regular expressions).
0 – don't check links
1 – open links to files in current tab
2 – disable Right Links on these links (will be shown context menu)
3 – copy link location (since version 0.3.8.1)
Value: modifiers + key
You can use following modifiers: control, alt, shift, meta, accel or os, see documentation for more info.
Key: any character or special code.
Example for Ctrl+Alt+R:
extensions.rightlinks.key.toggleStatus = "control alt R"
Or leave these preferences empty to disable hotkeys.
Warning! Open new window (or restart Firefox) to apply the changes.
Note: some combinations of key and modifiers don't work.

[x] Corrected long left-click in multi-process mode: increased waiting time to stop click event (extensions.rightlinks.e10sWaitDelay preference).
[+] Added ability to open original browser's context menu using right click with any modifier on Right Links button and menu item.
[x] Fixed detection of links from CSS Inspector in Firefox 52+.
[x] Fixed re-enable in multi-process mode: reuse already loaded frame scripts (see bug 1051238).
