How do I remove the "Open" option in drop down menus for the Bookmark Toolbar? It appears first, when 9 times out of 9, I'd rather use "New tab"...

The context drop down menu that appears when I right click on a bookmark in the "Bookmark toolbar" always defaults to "Open" as the first option. Now if I left clicked on the toolbar, Open already happens. This makes it appearing first slightly erroneous. If I am right clicking, the far more logical reason is I intend to do something other than just plain using the bookmark. Obviously changing this isn't possible through regular options, so I was wondering if there is a code based solution I can use? As I have literally never intended to use "Open" upon accessing the contextual right click drop down menu.

Add code to userChrome.css below the default @namespace line.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the user profile folder.


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#placesContext_open {display:none!important;}
