  • I need change F2 key to other because I use F2 for otherwise purpose……I like this extension and thank you for your good job.:)

    I've learned. Thank you very much!
    See about extensions.rightlinks.key.toggleStatus in description (https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/right-links/#addon-description).
  • This Benny once again , I went into about-config and changed for window to open on left-slow click ,(True) then I just added a new string saying (extension.rightlinks.loadinTab.right) and it worked perfectly. Thanks again for this add-on Benny
  • The test version is perfect for me...I can use it to open in a new window instead of a tab,,,and, it now works fine with "InFormEnter"....Thank You!!
  • Almost perfect for notebooks. One request (if you have a time) - that right button function could be inverted (long click - background tab, short - menu). This method is more intuitive and will be especially useful for simple users.
    I created an issue:
    But at least next release is planned only for bugfixes.
  • is it just 4 me or long click to open tab not working anymore please someone verify... if its not then pls fix it i just love this extension
    Please check following preferences in about:config page:
    Both should be "true".
    (Or open Add-ons Manager, navigate to Right Links and click on "Options…" button – should be checked "Enabled" and "Options – Enable long left-click")

    If still doesn't work, please provide detailed report here https://github.com/Infocatcher/Right_Links/issues
    or here http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=645809

    Also please try install Right Links on new profile: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles
    And if it works on new profile, this is probably conflict with other extension or non-standard configuration. And I need information from about:support page.
  • A must have. Very practical. Works flawlesly. The fact that it opens an image in another tab is for me very nice
  • Hi, first of all thanks for this great extension!

    I've got a problem opening pictures from Google Picasa albums in new tabs with the right mouse button. A right click on one thumbnail of a picture just opens the picture in the recent tab and not in a new one.

    For example:
    Thanks for report.
    I implemented possible fix, see https://github.com/Infocatcher/Right_Links/issues/1

  • i have search this extension for long time
    "long-press " is my favorite thing
    should let more body to know this
    very great!!!
  • Предлагаю добавить функцию, позволяющую щелчком ПКМ на + панели закладок сразу же в новой вкладке открыть ссылку, ранее скопированную в буфер обмена. То есть продублировать функцию, имеющуюся в макстон'е. Было бы естественным развитием функциональности дополнения для ПКМ.
    Ой, забыл ответить. :)
    Это не очень интуитивно и перестанет работать контекстное меню.
    Тут хорошо бы добавить соответствующую всплывающую подсказку, но уже выходит многовато кода для функции, которая не особо связана с основным предназначением расширения.

    Вот пример кода для любого расширения, позволяющего выполнять код при открытии главного окна браузера:
  • this is a "must have" extension for all the notebook users without middle mouse button!
  • Oh my lovely lenovo keyboard interface. Oh the foul toshiba one. Saved by an extremely expensive mouse Christmas present. With only 2 buttons. I don't want to spend 3 clicks opening tabs, and have to choose 2 equally annoying tab settings (open all in front or all behind). Lifesaver. If there are issues on google maps, as alleged, i don't care, it's a tiny price to pay.
  • I thought this would be useful but as it doesn't open the tab as well I might as well use the default drop down box, either way it's a 2 step procedure so no time saved.
    Please ensure, that extensions.rightlinks.enabled (and extensions.rightlinks.enabled.right + extensions.rightlinks.enabled.left) are "true" in about:config page. You may accidentally disable it using hotkey (F2 by default).

    And, may be, extensions.rightlinks.showContextMenuTimeout (500 milliseconds by default) is too small for you, try increase it.

    If Right Links still doesn't work, please provide detailed description here:

    (will open about:support page)
  • This worked perfectly for me until today. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and gone through the settings and still nothing. Would like to figure out how to fix it because it's my favorite feature in my Firefox!

    EDIT: Okay, super fast response to this and you guys totally saved it for me. Still my favorite add-on! Thank you! :)
    Preferences extensions.rightlinks.enabled and extensions.rightlinks.enabled.right in about:config should be "true".

    Previous version https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/right-links/versions/ works?

  • [quote]Версия 0.3.7 (2012-09-03)
    [+] Добавлена возможность открытия ссылок "долгим" кликом левой кнопкой мыши.[/quote]
    Вот оно - долгожданное!
  • Пять звезд для этого аддона - слишком мало.
    Нужнее этого аддона для Огненной лисы я не нашел.

    The greatest addon for FireFox!
  • It would be great if this extension had an option to actually emulate the middle click. This would allow extensions like Redirect Remover and MClickFocusTab to function properly when right clicking a link.
    All extensions works in one "level". So all of them will receive both events: real right-click and emulated middle-click.
    If Right Links tries prevent right-click event, another extensions should check event.defaultPrevented (https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/event.defaultPrevented), but the order of event listeners calling is "random".

    Additionally Redirect Remover should works like Redirector extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/redirector/): handle internal links opening, not clicks or other user actions.

    In the next Right Links version will be added "long" left-click feature, it's a bit similar to MClickFocusTab.
  • Firefox should have the ability to tweak mouse gestures built in. I use this with another great addon called Snap Links Plus, and together they save me a lot of effort with the mouse. I actually use a regular mouse with a middle button, but I always find the middle button difficult to press down.
  • Great addon. Saves a lot of time. But there's one more thing that could make this addon even better - An option to make the left button open the links on long click instead of the right button.
    Please, consider including this option in the future update.

    Edit: Thanks for paying attention to our comments and wishes.
    I'll try to add additional option for long left click in the next release.
  • Generally this add-on is exactly what I was looking for.
    Right click to open link in new tab.
    Holding right click for 0,5 sec. to open context menu.
    Brilliant! Nothing more to add.

    ...but I've got one BUT

    I also use "mouse gesture" app.
    I know that propanly the better choice is to pick up some firefox's add-on like e.g. Firegestures, but I prefer external app witch called StrokeIt and allow to uses mouse gestures for all Windows apps, not only for firefox browser.

    For some reason, when I use StrokeIt, after clicking on link and holding mouse button longer than defined timeout (500 ms), context menu not want to show up :(

    Everything is ok when I turn off StrokeIt.
    To be honest I've to add that in conjunction with Firegestures that problem doesn't appear.
    So you propably give me advice to get rid of StrokeIt and stick with Firegestures.
    I also add that both StrokeIt and Firegestures I use with right mouse button.

    So, may I ask you to check why your add-on doesn't work properly with StrokeIt?
    I would be really thankful.

    Kind Regards


    Thank you for your quick answer.
    Unfortunately, with enabled StrokeIt, Firefox window doesn't receive the "mousedown" event when mouse button is just pressed down (but not yet released).
  • This add-on is a 'must have' if you open a lot of tabs in firefox. Makes a simple right click of the mouse open the target in a new tab. Can easily be turned on and off depending on your current surfing/work needs.
  • Thanks for the quick reply, the culprit was tub utilities, I replaced it with tab mix plus. I havn't tried right click as middle in TU, but I'd imagine it would block the context menu. TMPlus doesn't have any options for right click at all, maybe that's why it plays fine with your add-on.
  • Quintessential addon but unfortunately it doesnt work in the Twitter pages with the tweet links which start with @ or #.

    i have to press these links with middle click if i want to open them in new tabs.With RightLinks,these links either dont open at all or an error message popups (something about void links) or they open in the same tab or they open a small tweeter menu in the middle of the screen.

    As a result of this problem,i am forced to use middle click when i am in Twitter but since i am now more accustomed to the more efficient right-clicking,i keep forgetting to use middle-click and i often get these errors.

    If the developers reads this,is it possible for him to fix this problem? So that when i click these @ and # links,they open the hyperlinked twitter addresses in new tabs,in the same way that the default middle click does if i use it.

    Other than that,this addon is excellent because my ring finger is stressed a lot less than my middle finger used to.So surfing is a lot more comfortable experience.I thank the developer for creating it.
    These popups is just notifications, not errors. And you can disable it in "Pop-up messages" sub menu (see context menu of any item from Right Links).
    For links like http://twitter.com/#!/... Right Links decides that this is fake anchor (looks like link to the same page, but page doesn't contains linked node) and emulate left-click.

    I see 2 types links in twitter:
    1) http://twitter.com/#!/... - will be fixed in next version
    2) http://twitter.com/# (Reply etc.) - this is really fake link only for left-click

    See https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/right-links/versions/
  • Расширение полезное.
    Вот бы ещё была возможность выбора, что делать при нажатии правой кнопкой, а именно пункт из стандартного меню при клике;"сохранить объект как..."

    То есть нажал правой кнопкой по линку и сохранилась картинка или что там за линком.
    В папку любую.
    Или подскажите расширение если такое есть.
    Есть только возможность загружать ссылки, попадающие под маску extensions.rightlinks.filesLinksMask, в текущей вкладке или открывать для них контекстное меню – см. описание настройки extensions.rightlinks.filesLinksPolicy.

    С аналогом пункта «Сохранить объект как…» из контекстного меню есть сложность: API для этого действия отсутствует – получение имени файла реализовано только в обработчике стандартного контекстного меню (например, для файла https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/latest/5981/addon-5981-latest.xpi будет получено имя right_links-
    И отсюда вытекает другая проблема – из-за процесса получения имени (время ограничено настройкой browser.download.saveLinkAsFilenameTimeout) будет не понятно, сработал ли клик, что не очень удобно. И если задан маленький таймаут, можно не успеть получить имя файла.
    И, наконец, из-за отсутствия API можно получить (и то не совсем «честно») только встроенный вариант с диалогом сохранения. Иначе нужно писать довольно много кода по аналогии со встроенной реализацией «Сохранить объект как…».
  • The moment you start using this add-on there is no going back.
    I did not switch to other browsers because of this Add-on.
    Total efficiency of opening links in new tab (forward or background). Instead of right clicking and choosing option in text box and clicking again - you only need click once and no text box !

    I reverted back from 3.6 to 3.5 because i didn't like the new panel setting. the upper option should stay the most used option - "Load links in background" (which i use on and off all the time) and not "enable" , which is actually not needed at all - I can simply press the toolbar button to enable/ disable.

    Please update version 3.5 here to the one that works well with "Right to click" on Mac (in this version right clicking opens the text box too) .
    it took me some time to find the link to your fix

    Many many thanks.
    > the upper option should stay the most used option - "Load links in background"
    You are right. I will show "enabled" item only for menu from options in Add-ons Manager.
    (Second reason – it's bad to provide many ways to do the same thing: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ff458339.aspx)

    > when i right press on a PDF link it does open a new tab, but it loads the PDF on the current tab for some reason.
    Seems like extensions.rightlinks.filesLinksPolicy = 1 and extensions.rightlinks.filesLinksMask (both in about:config) match links to some PDF files.

    > And please update version 3.5 here to the one that works well with "Right to click" on Mac (in this version right clicking opens the text box too) .
    Very strange.
    Context menu handling seems the same in and 0.3.6.
    Please describe more information here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=645809 (such as data from about:support, behavior without RightToClick and behavior on clean Firefox profile).
  • Now, all of a sudden without doing anything it works! and it works perfectly!
