How to rollback to a previous version of Firefox that had the right-click Properties menu item for identifying the URL of web links?

One of my favorite features of Firefox was that it was the only browser that had a built-in security feature of helping users identify bogus web links. Previous versions had a right-click menu item called Properties that allowed users to view the actual URL associated with a Web link. This feature prevented users from unknowingly clicking bogus or malicious web links. And, it makes absolutely NO sense why such a valuable and unique feature would have been removed!

I recall considerable complaint about the loss of this feature at the time. But for some reason, Mozilla has chosen not to restore this feature. I'd like to rollback to a previous version of Firefox that included this feature. What was the last version that included the right-click Properties menu item, and where can I obtain a download of it?

In Firefox 3.6 Properties has been removed from the right click context menu. You can use View Image Info or View Page Info in the right click context menu to see the (image) properties.

Thanks for the links cor-el! It looks like the Element Properties was designed to restore the Properties feature to the Right-click context menu. But, I'm confused by so many negative comments from users who are still unhappy with it. Does it restore the Properties to Right-click or not? Or, does it merely approximate the previous Right-click|Properties function? Also, since this appears to be a pre-4.0 release, does that mean Properties is being returned to Firefox in version 4?
