Default Reduce right click options in Firefox

Hi Firefox experts,

When I right-click on a link, I get upto sixteen options, depending on the context, including three because of add-ons (WOT, NoScript, Adblock Plus). Is there a way to reduce the number of options (other than those of the add-ons)? There are some I don't think I ever need and it is a mild pain to reach the option I want with my laptop touchpad.

You could try the following FF add on: https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/addon/710

Also, there is right clicker 1.38 from: http://www.moo0.com/

I have the following installed on my DT: http://www.lopesoft.com/en/fmtools/info.html

Hope all the above is of some help!

Hi Torres and thanks for the reply. Actually, I was hoping that there would be something possible in about:config to reduce the options in the context menu.

Not sure if that is possible, if it is, I think it will be very complicated.

Menu Editor worked flawlessly for me, I would recommend it as well.

Here's a way to remove at least one of the options in the context menu that opens with the right-click in Firefox.

It is based on tweaking the userChrome.css.

Presumably, it would use less resources than an extension (which may offer many other functions).

I haven't tried it myself since I'm quite happy with Chrome these days.
