When I right click on an image I am provided 13 different options, including some commands for extensions. When I right-click on a clickable image, the options increase to 16 options. And If I have selected some text on the page, and then right-click on a clickabe image, they increase to 20!!! thats lots of commands and majority of them, i dont need. So I was wondering if there is any way to get rid of some of these un-needed options? i especially don't like google bar items in the context menu, and I have unchecked the option for it in the options box, but its still there. How do i get rid of that? Maybe the developers could look into providing an option to customise right-click menu in future builds, like in TBE?


Secondly, is there a way to get rid of some of the extensions I don't find useful? I know one couldn't earlier on, but has anyone found a solution to the problem yet?

TIA.

To remove items from the context menu, suppress their display by making CSS entries for them in your userChrome.css file. For example:
Code: Select all
#context-setWallpaper, #context-blockimage, #context-bookmarkpage
{
display: none;
}

Here's a list of context-menu item names:

#context-back
The "Back" item on the content area context menu.
#context-blockimage
The "Block images…" item on the content area context menu.
#context-bookmarklink
The "Bookmark this Link…" item on the content area context menu.
#context-bookmarkpage
The "Bookmark this Page…" item on the content area context menu.
#context-copy
The "Copy" item on the textbox context menu.
#context-copyemail
The "Copy Email Address" item on the content area context menu.
#context-copyimg
The "Copy Image Location" item on the content area context menu.
#context-copylink
The "Copy Link Location" item on the content area context menu.
#context-cut
The "Cut" item on the textbox context menu.
#context-delete
The "Delete" item on the textbox context menu.
#context-forward
The "Forward" item on the content area context menu.

#context-metadata
The "Properties" item on the content area context menu.
#context-openlink
The "Open Link in New Window" item on the content area context menu.
#context-openlinkintab
The "Open Link in New Tab" item on the content area context menu.
#context-paste
The "Paste" item on the textbox context menu.
#context-reload
The "Reload" item on the content area context menu.
#context-saveimage
The "Save Image As…" item on the content area context menu.
#context-savelink
The "Save Link As…" item on the content area context menu.
#context-savepage
The "Save Page As…" item on the content area context menu.
#context-searchselect
The "Web Search for…" item on the content area context menu.
#context-selectall
The "Select All" item on the textbox context menu.
#context-stop
The "Stop" item on the content area context menu.
#context-setWallpaper
The "Set As Wallpaper" item on the content area context menu.
#context-undo
The "Undo" item on the textbox context menu.
#context-viewbgimage
The "View Background Image" item on the content area context menu.
#context-viewimage
The "View Image" item on the content area context menu.

The "View Page Info" item on the content area context menu.

Thanks for the list sag.

I got rid of my forward, back, reload, and stop choices, because I generally use the buttons for that. This leaves a useless seperator on the context menu. Any idea on how to get rid of that? (I may end up putting reload back on there, so it'll be a non-issue, but I'd still be curious to know how to get rid of it...)

Wow, thanks for the tip, Sag! I also found the context menu cluttered, but this tip definitely helps me out. Thank you!

seperators can be remove by adding -menuseparator after the item before the seperator

so something like this #openintabs-menuseparator,

and thnaks for completing my list sag :D

Thanx a lot man. Deleted a lot of useless commands. There are a few that are still bugging me. Was wondering if you could help with them? What is the command for getting rid of:

Send page...
Googlebar items
Save Link to disk...
Send Link
Send Image

And how do i get rid of double horizontal lines just under "Send page..." command? once again, thanx for helping with the problem.

I guess I thanked you too early (while at work, before trying it ;))

Here's what I'm trying now, please tell me if you see what's wrong with it:

/* Remove items from: Right-Click context menu. */
#context-sendpage,
#context-sendimage,
#context-sendlink,
#context-back,
#context-forward,
#context-reload,
#context-stop,
#stop-menuseparator {display:none !important;}

That keeps the menuseparater there. I've tried several other possible ways, but not that work...

#context-sep-frame

I have a question that's slightly on (or off) topic. How can I change the hotkey for "Save Link to Disk" to "Save Link to Disk"? I'm more used to using the letter 'a' from IE, not to mention it's on the left side of the keyboard where my left hand's usually at.

Also, is it possible to change the mouse shortcut Alt + Left Click from "Save Page As" to "Save Link to DisK"?

I found this in another thread; it's my current context menu option hider, modified slightly from someone else's. It's easy to adjust by simply marking a /* in front of those you wish to see.

Copy and paste into your userChrome.css file. restart Firefox and you'll be good to go :)

/* To show item place /* in front of it (see below) */
