Re: missing send link

hello, mozilla does clean up its user interface from time to time. user interface studies have shown that this context menu entry is only used by <1% of the users.

you could try the following addon as replacement: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/email-this/

Re: missing send link

This is crazy to remove a useful feature. I've got clients asking me what happened to the Send Link feature they use multiple times a day?

For now I have to tell them to revert back to version 15 and don't update.

Re: missing send link

it's not as if one gets a choice, it updates without asking if you want to, but the file option works as well, but it's much more cumbersome, as is having to use alt to get the menus back. i never got asked if I wanted it to be more awkward to use; Firefox is not cuddly any more, which affects loyalty, but that's their choice, it's not the only fish in the sea.

Re: missing send link

I have discovered the same problem. I used the feature all the time. It was one of the most useful Firefox features. If its not broke why fix (screw) it? I understand it was the automatic update that did it.

How do I shut the automatic update off? How do I go back to the previous version?

It seems more like something Microsoft would do than Mozilla.

Re: missing send link

my guess is that people like to tinker and wind up making satisfactory worse by fixing what ain't broke, but that's just the way of the world. when enough people moan a bout it they may admit they made a mistake- not common among humans, and get it right next time. it's a freebie so we can't really moan that much.

Re: missing send link

every time I ad an add- on they update firefox and it's not compatible.

attempts to make satisfactory better invariably result in it's being worse, it seems to be a cosmic law.

Re: missing send link

You mean to tell me that less than 1% of the people that use Firefox do not put links in there email. Is this some kind of back handed insult to Firefox users that constantly construct emails w/o links?

I can believe that 1% of email sent have no links but not that statistic. These people must be really getting off on their little joke.

I would use a link here, but I am too much of a gentlemen.

You can turn off FireFox's automatic update process in Tools, Options, Advanced, Update tab.
