Edited 2012-10-27 to add the following information about a new Addon:

A new Add-on that will add a "Send Link" option to the context menu when right-clicking on a link on a page:

Original post marked as solution by the original poster is below the break



Changes have been made in Firefox 16 to some of the right-click menu options. The changes were made by Mozilla developers after research into the use of certain right-click options.

I have Firefox 15 and can't send a link. When I hold the ALT key down, the file menu disappears. This was a sudden change--not when I last updated Firefox.

Judy429, your issue is different as you should start a new thread. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop

Please bring back the Send Link context item !

No developers on this forum, just users helping users. Developers made the decision and the "Send Link" on the right-click context menu is unlikely to return. Please try the suggestions that I made in my reply above.

You can make that suggestion by clicking Help > Submit Feedback. You will not receive a reply to your suggestions made there but they will be seen by developers.

As a frequent right-click Send Link user, I think this was a bad change. But there is still File > Email Link in the menu bar (which I didn't know about previously).

The removal of the Send Link from context menu was in the works since late March 2004 as it took them this long to finally remove it.

It's still in the File menu and the Firefox app menu as Email link.

This is crap. I could simply right click and send a link, now I have to go to the top of the page and click menu then go down to Email a link? Utter STUPIDITY! Make things 10X harder. Just pushing me closer to using CoolNovo full time that much sooner.

Luckily I found an addon that restores the email via right click, but it's now at the bottom of the menu, a pain but doable. I guess the code monkeys had nothing better to do this week but screw up a useful part of FF....

steve1084 0 solutions 4 answers

Well I must say that taking the right click send option away without providing a way to put it back is very crazy. Why not make it an option in the manager. This was one of my most favorite reasons for using Firefox and I use it 10 to 50 times a day and now I will have to revert to an earlier version of Firefox to get it back is so so stupid. Please advise all of us how we can re-implement this option in Firefox.

This was a stupid move by the developers, taking away one of the best things about Firefox. Why ???????????????????????????????

steve1084 0 solutions 4 answers

OK well after first reverting to an older version of firefox to get my right click menu options back I have since discovered one way that works but at a cost.

By using the addon menu-editor it is possible to move the EMAIL LINK button from the file menu to the (Main Context Menu) ie the "right click menu" BUT you will loose the file menu button as there is no way to clone the button and only move a copy. Bunch of clowns that decided to do this I really don't know what they were thinking. Very VERY stupid move.

Here is a link to the only option that works https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/menu-editor/

Can you buggers at least provide a clone and move option in the menu-editor

I installed Email This! extension and it works well. only issue I have is it's now at the bottom of the right click and it has too many choices for emailing -- not major issues though.

I use the AddThis extension. Can send the link thru email, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. http://www.addthis.com/

None of the suggestions here do what "send link" did! They ALL send the link of the current page.

I didn't want to have to copy the link or click on the link to send it. Why the &#$ did they take this away and give us NO options (except, well, to switch to Chrome). And nobody who's responded to this has been smart enough to realize this. I'm very impressed.

Nicely done. Really.

cplager 0 solutions 6 answers

You can access the former "Send Link" by pressing the ALT key (in Windows) > click File > click Email Link. There is also a new Add-on that you can try - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/email-this/

Did you or the developers notice that this is not the same behavior?

What you are talking about sends the address of the current page. What I want (and have in Chrome and IE) is to send the address of a link on the page (hence the very cryptic name 'send link').

matt832 1 solutions 6 answers

As I stated previously Email This! does exactly what the old Send Link did, just has a few more choices. It functions the same.

Modified by matt832

cplager 0 solutions 6 answers

It doesn't for me. When I use Email this, I right click on a link and fish through the too many choices, it pops up an email with the page link and not the link I had right-clicked on.

For example, I just right-clicked on 'Matt832' link, selected email and it had this link embedded in the body:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/939185#question-reply

Which is not the right link.

matt832 1 solutions 6 answers

Ahh, we do two different things with it. 99% of the time I just want to email the article or page I'm on to someone or my self and just right click anywhere on the page and send the link, Email This! does that perfectly. Using your process it does show up in the body of the email.

regardless it's frustrating. I'm on the fence if I will keep using Firefox after this. CoolNovo has all the features I"m looking for INCLUDING the left sidebar with links in it that is missing from Chrome, that is the ONLY reason I use FF anymore. I have hundreds of links and the only functional way for me to do anything is to use All in One Sidebar. CoolNono does that about as well. I'll have to see about sending a link though.

cplager 0 solutions 6 answers

Exactly.

For your use, fortunately, you can still File->Email link even without the add-on (although I agree that if are used to using the context menu to send the link, the add-on fills the void.)

This is crazy to remove a useful feature. I've got clients asking me what happened to the Send Link feature they use multiple times a day?

For now I have to tell them to revert back to version 15 and don't update.
