Firefox 2.0 Macintosh Menus

Argggh! The latest version of Firefox takes away a very important feature for Mac OS X users: long-click context menus.

See, Mac laptops have only one button, which means that if you want to see right-click context menus (to open a link in a new tab, for instance) you need to use two hands and Ctrl-Click. One of the many great features of Firefox 1.x is that, for OSX, if you held down the mouse button for more than a second, the context menu would just appear.

The Fix! Hooray! You can enable long-click context menus using the about:config screen.

The key is ui.click_hold_context_menus. Set it to true and you'll be one-hand surfing again in no time!
