In previous versions of FF I was able to highlight a word or words and then right click, the context menu had a "Search the internet using these words" option. Which made searching so much easier. How do I get that back and get rid of that monster right click menu?

I had same problem, i think it appeared with version Firefox 20.0 This is how my right click menu looked like http://prntscr.com/z0k15 Half of the links on it didnt work. Reinstalling firefox didnt help.
Problem was caused by Addon FIREBUG 1.10.6. Problem is fixed if I disable and re enable firebug. I hope newre version of firebug will fix problem.
EDIT: FIREBUG 1.11.2 fixed problem. Looks like firebug isnt updating autoamticly, you have to delete old addon and reinstall new version.
The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:

Problem with reseting FF is that every thing I customized goes away as well. This was like this from the start. There's got to be a way of changing this.
Resetting makes your Firefox as anew browser with default settings
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
It may help if you explain what you mean by huge, and what the options are that you see on right click.
If you have a lot of customisations to Firefox and your OS you will probably expect to see a larger than usual number of options on right click.
Or are you reporting that the text or the options dialogue box itself is too big ?
It used to be a simple context menu. Now it has 50 different options to choose from.
This started when I downloaded the new version of FF. It has nothing to do with the extentions or addons.
I want the old right click menu back. It was so much better.
Did you check your extensions?
From my last post - "This started when I downloaded the new version of FF. It has nothing to do with the extentions or addons. "
