I think there used to be a sharing menu, on or near the address bar. The "..." button or menu had all the macos sharing options.

seems to have moved in 89.0

am i missing something ?


Thanks.

Hi jasonjarvis,

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.

Thank you for clearing this up. If there's a better way to communicate these changes that would be great. I've been a long time FireFox user and I don't even know there was a right click menu on each tab. It's a super handy menu would it be possible to add it as a toolbar icon?

@Macbook Pro Yeah, we're really sorry about our inability to communicate this beforehand.

Other than right-click on the tab (Tab Context Menu), you might find some of the options from the three dots menu by doing right-click on the empty area in the page (Context Menu). There's also an Email Link button from the Customize menu (hamburger menu -> More Tools -> Customize Toolbar).

Hope that helps!
