Clean Links

Mouse gestures Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is great in terms of configurability (regex), but for me it lacks one crucial feature: working with links opened via mouse gestures (e.g. right-click dragging). I often need to open links in a new tab, and mouse gesture is way more convenient than pressing Shift+Ctrl key while clicking. I really hope the developer will support mouse gestures (e.g. FireGestures) in a future release.

Another issue is that even if I configured Google to open search results in new tabs, Clean Links doesn't see that, and always opens links in place.

Finally, a weird bug I just found: on Firefox 45, if I remove the toolbar button, after the browser restarts, Clean Links will be disabled. You can re-enable it by restoring the button. It seems that the button must always show in the toolbar in order for it to stay enabled after Firefox restarts.

But this add-on is truly useful and has great potential. Thank you Diego.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.1-signed.1-signed).
