Edit Firefox Right Click Context Menu and Remove Unnecessary Entries

Earlier we have seen a Firefox add-on called FF-Chrome which can be used to shorten Firefox context menu and remove the entries which you never use. As you install more and more extensions, the context menu of Firefox gets loaded with lots of entries. This can be hugely distracting, you have to scroll through a long list of options to find the right click entry which you are looking for.

There are some entries in Firefox context menu which I never use. For example:

  • View page source ( I use the keyboard shortcut Control + U)
  • Send link ( I use Twitter or Facebook to send links to my friends)
  • Save page as ( rarely used, I use the scrapbook add-on when I want to save a page for later reading)
  • Bookmark this page ( I use the keyboard shortcut Control +D)

This list may depend on how you use Firefox and which context menu options are not required at all.

The Menu Editor Firefox add-on can be used to completely customize Firefox right click context menu and remove the unnecessary entries which you never use. You can also rearrange the items as per your choice.

Edit Firefox Context Menu and Remove Unnecessary Entries

You can choose to show or remove individual entries, this is very useful if you do not remember keyboard shortcuts and depend on the right click options heavily.

The best part about the extension is that it allows you to edit the main Menu bar in Firefox, so you can also remove the unnecessary links and entries from File, Edit, Bookmarks and so on.
