Is there a way to bring back the "Open a New Tab" option via right-clicking on the Tab?

I just upgraded to latest version of Firefox (6.0). Yesterday it informed me that an upgrade to Firefox 5.(something) was available and asked if I wanted to upgrade. I went for it. However, I hadn't used it since then till today. Now when I opened it today it asked me if I wanted to upgrade to version 6.0. Without hesitation, I went for it too.

While this version looks nice, it feels a bit odd to use it. Previously whenever I wanted to open a new Tab, I right-clicked on any of the Tabs (active tab or any other Tab) and after right-clicking, it had the option to Open a New Tab along with few other options. Now there's no such option. There's the + button to open a new tab, but what if I want to open a link in a new tab by right-clicking on it? Similarly the option to Open in New Window is also missing.

Is there a way to bring back those previous Tab options/settings? If yes, how?


P.S. In my bookmark toolbar, when I click on a bookmark icon, it has the same options/settings as it previously had in the last version I used (last version I used was 3.something; while I'd upgraded to version 5.something I hadn't used it except for opening the browser when it asked me to upgrade to version 6.0). Options on right clicking the bookmark icon are: Open Open in a New Tab Open in a New Window New Bookmark... New Folder... New Separator Cut Copy Paste Delete Properties

I'd also like to mention here that I know of the shortcut keys; so please don't waste your time by trying to help me that way. Thanks.

No. The Tab bar is a regular toolbar in current Firefox versions, so you get the normal right-click context menu of a toolbar if you right-click the tab bar.

You can double click on empty space on the tab bar to open a new tab if you do not want to use the new tab button.
You can drag a link on that new tab button to open that link in a new tab.
You can also drag the new tab button on another toolbar if you would like that better.
Open the Customize window via "View > Toolbars > Customize" or via "Firefox > Options > Toolbar Layout"

Thanks a bunch for providing the solution cor-el, but this (situation, not your solution) really sucks. I presumed this to be an "update" to the previous version per se!!!
