Airdrop Missing from Search Bar

Hi There,

Used to be there were three dots in the search bar, and when I clicked it I had the option of airdropping a website to my phone, which I found to be considerably convenient; especially if I want to text somebody a website or what have you, something I am browsing on my computer.

Is this no longer possible with the latest update?

Thanks

Hi,

As of Firefox 89, the meatball/three-dot/ "Page actions" menu was removed from the URL bar and the options were moved to either tab context menu or the page context menu. Here is how you can find alternative ways to access the various options from the old page action:

  • Bookmark Current Tab: You can click the "star" icon to save the page as bookmark. Alternatively, you can right-click on the tab and choose Bookmark Tab.
  • Save Page to Pocket: If the Save to Pocket button Fx89PocketButton is missing from the toolbar, you can add it from the Customize Toolbar tab. See Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars.
  • Pin Tab: Right-click on the tab and choose Pin Tab.
  • Copy Link: Click on the URL bar and press (Ctrl+C) for Windows and Linux or (command+C) for Mac. Alternatively, you can highlight the URL, then right-click on it and select "Copy" from the context menu.
  • Email Link: You can add the Email Link button to the Toolbar from the Customize Toolbar tab.
  • Take Screenshot: Right click on the empty part of a page and choose Take Screenshot. More about that: Take screenshots on Firefox.
  • Send Tab to Device: Right-click on the tab and choose Send Tab to Device.
  • Share: Right click on the tab and choose Share.

Appreciate the speedy reply. That's too bad, though, because it seems I can't airdrop the link in the search bar to my phone? Was a cool feature. Meatball, you will be missed.

You can still send the tab to another device signed into the same Firefox Account from that menu.

Ah the pocket! Okay thanks. I tried scan-logging in on my phone just now and got an "auth error." Will try again later. Appreciate your help Seburo

It's still there. Control-click on the tab. I've attached a screenshot to show you.
