Ever since I updated to FF 16 I no longer see the option to send an email link when I right click although it does still show up under file also I noticed my Speed Dial extension isn't working correctly with FF 16.

Thanks AliceWyman good to know that this works with email apps like Thunderbird but if we want this feature back I suggest everyone follow this link: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=770419 and vote also clicking on "I'm having this problem to" on this post could help get the message across to Mozilla. And just as DoscoJones mentioned the Send Link extension doesn't automatically fill title field but either way thanks AliceWyman for the update. :-)

I've submitted the following two feedback items to Firefox:

Sent to "Firefox Made Me Sad" at http://input.mozilla.org/en-US/feedback#sad: You still haven't put "send link" back onto the right-click context menu - see bugs 239307, 786185, 800565, 803805, 804124, 804424, 805134, and 805949

Sent to "I Have an Idea for Firefox" at http://input.mozilla.org/en-US/feedback#idea: Put "send link" back onto the right-click context menu - see bugs 239307, 786185, 800565, 803805, 804124, 804424, 805134, and 805949

Feel free to do the same - you're welcome to cut-and-paste the above messages. Maybe if we bombard Mozilla with requests to put "Send link" back, they'll relent and DO IT.

(Note: The reference to "bugs" in my messages has to do with Bugzilla, Mozilla's tech system for reporting problems - for information about Bugzilla, see http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/4.0/en/html/index.html)

The right-click menu Send Link was something I use all the time. Its removal greatly degrades FF...I will have to go back a version and turn off the updates so I can have this feature back.

Please put this useful function back in! !!!!!!!

Thank you! It works fine! I've often seen this with several other programs, they upgrade the program, and make it worse! What were they thinking?

once again guys:

anyone an idea which line to add in the userChrome.css:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */
#contentAreaContextMenu > * { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2; }
#context-openlink { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important; }

???? this one was created when "open in new tab" moved from second to first position in the context menu long time ago..

(the userChrome.css is a txt file saved as .css; in a folder called "chrome" which is placed in the user folder: profiles/xy123456z.default/chrome/userChrome.css. Neither "/chrome/" nor the userChrome exist by default and have to be created manually. This is the path on a mac OSX. In win7 it was more difficult as the folder profiles/xy123456z.default/ exists several times and the one to choose was hidden on my win7 notebook:

Such code in userChrome.css can only move as existing item in the context menu to the top position.
If an item is missing than you can't add it this way.

Current Firefox version also accept -moz-box-ordinal-group: 0, so this code only (and @namespace) should work as well.

#context-openlink { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 0 !important; }

I agree. I want this feature back.

The best that you can currently do is use this extension:
