For the longest time, I’ve wanted Firefox to put the “Open Link in New Tab” option at the top of the context menu when I click on a link. I use this option all the time, and the mild annoyance of having to move my mouse to get to it has added up over the years. I even switched to using Google Chrome as my main browser partly because it has the “Open in New Tab” menu item right where I like it: at the top of the right-click context menu.
Today I was finally about to write a Firefox extension just to correct this annoyance when I stumbled upon the Firefox Menu Editor extension. This add-on allows you to edit the text and position of pretty much any menu item in Firefox 2 and 3, including the one I care about most! I installed it, tweaked the menu, and now I’m a happy Firefox user again.
