How to disable the new tab button's container context menu?
Is there a way to disable the new tab button's container context menu? The menu pops up when the new tab "+" icon is right clicked, as well as when left click is held down for one second on the "+" icon. I've disabled everything in about:config that contains the word "container" and that did not remove the context menu. I do not use containers and do not want that context menu popping up when I accidentally do one of the two things that trigger it. I've included a screenshot of what I want to disable and circled it in red.
Firefox version 106.0.1
It's privacy.userContext.enabled in about:config.Read this answer in context 👍 2

You can drag the new tab (+) button to the Customize palette window to remove this button from the tab bar just like you do with other toolbar buttons.

Thanks, but unfortunately that wouldn't solve the problem. It would be like cutting off a hand to get rid of a loose fingernail. That would remove the new tab button entirely, which is my most frequently used button in Firefox. I just want to remove the container context menu that pops up from the new tab button. I think perhaps a scripting addon would be able to accomplish the goal if I knew how to target the specific context menu.
