Hi there, I just installed Firefox4. I was near perfect although they switch Open in New Tab/Window position. I fixed yet when clicking right on a link using userChrome.css following settings :


#context-openlink {
   -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important;
}	
#contentAreaContextMenu > * {
   -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2;
}


Anyway i have still the same when right clicking on a bookmark/menu url - it show : Open Open in new Tab Open in new Window


New bookmark... New folder...

Anybody have an idea to set option in userChrome.ss 'cause atm i'm out. Thanks in advance, Golkran

Try this:

Open your userChrome.css
Then, insert this code:

#contentAreaContextMenu > #context-openlink { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important; }

#contentAreaContextMenu > * { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important; }

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

#placesContext> menuitem[id="placesContext_open"] { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 0 !important; }

#placesContext> menuitem[id="placesContext_open:newwindow"] { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important; }

#placesContext> menuitem[id="placesContext_open:newtab"] { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important; }

#placesContext> * { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important; }

Then restart Firefox.

When I right click on a bookmark, I can see this order:

Open
Open in new window
Open in new tab

such as in Firefox 3.

I also installed the Menu Editor add-on to change the order of this menu, but it works only with link within a page, not for bookmarks. With the previous code in userChrome.css file, it works also with right click on a bookmark.

I hope this solution will be useful for many users, because I found more difficult to solve the problem.

For Firefox Community: where can we find syntax such as the above? For example, for "placesContext", "placesContext_open:newtab" and so on? I tryed many combinations of parameters, before find the solution that solve the problem.

Best regards.
