- by Patrick Larkin, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5I only use this in Thunderbird, and I use it a lot: I can double click a string and make it open a search in almost any web-app (for example, a trouble-ticket system). Should be core functionality in TBird! (updated 9/11/20)
- by -, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5Very good options but way too much submenus.. there are this possibilities usually:
- popup small icon - 1 click
- right click menu item - 2 clicks
- right click menu submenu item - 3 clicks
- right click menu submenu submenu item - 4 clicks <- we are HERE
that's way too much. the submenus appear on the left right, usually it all closes before retry. please move the action items higher in menu hierarchy, definitely don't need two submenus to open in new tab or here. Menu Control - Hide ... options doesn't help reduce this mess.
It won't process selection correctly if text around and multiple links are selected. Resulting link will be text mess.
Thanks.Firefox forces extension to have all their context menu additions in a submenu, this cannot be changed. I am confused as why you are having to click through the options, you should just be able to move the mouse, and it shouldn't vanish halfway through navigating.
For support, issues or suggestions please contact me or visit https://github.com/fnxweb/urllink/issues — in particular, see https://github.com/fnxweb/urllink/issues/5 for reducing the sub-menu count.

It's amazing what Neil did with his take on rewriting URL Link as a WebExtension.
Thank you so much for putting that much effort into it! :)
My claim about your switch to Chrome originated from one of our direct mails where I read it as "I'll switch to Chrome soon" - at least, I thought so.
I apologize for misinterpreting your mail. It's good to know you're sticking with the hot fox. ;)
Lastly, as a suggestion, I'd like to ask if we (maybe via an option) can eliminate the new sub-sub menu, i. e. instead of:
URL Link -> Open Selection in New Tab, Help & Preferences -> Unaltered, [my defined targets]
I'd like to simply have
URL Link -> Unaltered, [my defined targets]

Some users are having trouble re-ordering the lists at the moment, which is why I've not yet fully released it.
Update: preference editing went into version 3.1.0.
- by Firefox user 13472805, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Thanks for updating to work with Firefox 57. My only wish is that it opened the link in a new tab (i.e. when I want to look up the definition of a word in a news article in Wikipedia, I'd like the article to remain open in another tab).
