Is your right-click context menu in Firefox getting a little bloated? If you go through a lot of extensions for Firefox, you can sometimes end up with more items in the right-click menu than you want. Then again, sometimes you might just want to move one option to the top while leaving lesser used options at the bottom. The Menu Editor extension for Firefox will let you customize that right-click context menu.

Need a way to quickly do more with your mouse when browsing the web using Firefox? The MouseControl add-on is a nifty tool that allows you to switch, close, quick return, duplicate and zoom just by clicking on your mouse buttons.
Need to set a Facebook or Twitter Status message in a hurry? Statusus has you covered. This is a very simple Firefox add-on that allows you to quickly select any text on a website, right click and then set it up as your status message for the moment.
From the creator of Colorful Tabs, we have yet another handy and helpful Firefox extension. FfChrome, for Firefox, is an add-on that trims and slims your context menus. After installing too many add-ons, your right click menu might get a little cluttered. FfChrome is here to clean things up.
The second part of this awesome addition to Firefox is that you never have to click on anything to get it going. All you have to do is pause on the menu item you want, and that action is taken. From BianaryTurf.com – here are the five things this addon gets right:
- It will optimize your context menu and show only the bare essential items.
- It will allow you to see the unwanted items on the fly by clicking "Show All". You can again collapse it to bare essentials on the fly.
- All disabled items are taken out by default. What will one do with the "paste" item when you haven’t copied anything?
- Ease of use – all changes happen on the fly.
- It is contextually sensitive. It knows and respects the context in which you use it. For e.g. context menu items relating to links or images etc. will only show when you right click on a link or an image etc.
You can get more information about the add-on for Firefox (and download it for yourself) at BianaryTurf.com. FfChrome might just change the way (or at least make it a heck of a lot simpler) you get through the context menus.
Isn’t it about time you gave your right button on your mouse a break?
Starting of the week with a simple, yet effective addon for anybody in the Firefox user base. The Auto Context extension for Firefox will automatically right-click any text that you highlight.
The fun doesn’t stop there though. This add-on also lets you customize that right-click context menu with what you want, need and love. Also, no need to worry about if it works with your current context menu changing extensions. Here are some of them that it should work with:
Plain Text to Link, Open-Tran, BabelZilla Glossary Extension, SearchWith, Organize Search Engines, Add to Search Bar, Nuke Anything Enhanced, DownThemAll! and Define Word
Auto Context will save your right mouse button a lot of work through the day.
If just a handful of searching up in your search bar doesn’t cut it for you or if you want to remove your search bar to reclaim space, termBlaster is the super searching extention that will have you looking for things you never knew you could look.
Here is a little more about the Firefox extension from the developers:
termBlaster adds the ability to perform searches from your right-click (or context) menu using one of 110+ websites that range from search engines to encyclopedias to translators. Website lists are in XML format and can be modified in Places.
One would think that speed could come into play when trying to navigate through the search menus but you can do so quickly with little or no effort at all. All you do is highlight and right click the word you want to search and then select the search engine you want to use. They have shopping searches, review searches, torrent searches, map searches, too many to name.
