hello jsmorris707, are you referring to the "email link" option in the right-click context-menu? it has been removed since user interface studies have shown it was only used by a very small fraction of the user base - however you can use the following addon to restore this functionality: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/send-link-in-context-menu/
