Right Clicking on link to open it in a new tab no longer works
I often use the trick of right clicking on a link and then open in new tab to keep the original web page open but now nothing happens when I do it. I wonder if there has been a Firefox update today which has caused this.
It started this morning and I'd be most grateful for some assistance with this as it's particularly useful with Facebook.

Which operating system are you on? Does right click work on other apps, like the file browser of you system?
Hi Patrick, thank you so much for your response.
I am using iMac OS Mojave operating system, Firefox 7.0.
I just tested to see if the right click system worked in Chrome and it did. So it seems it's a Firefox related problem.
I have closed down quite a few tabs in case it was related to Firefox having too many tabs open, and I closed and restarted Firefox. It is now behaving itself and opening tabs correctly.
An alternative to right-clicking and then selecting open link in new tab is to click on the link with your middle mouse button (often the scroll wheel). Does that work for you?
