Really useful extension for touchpad users. It could be nice to add an icon in the status bar to on/off easily the extension.

Thanks

I have a strange behavior with the new version. When I right click it opens well the new tab but it shows too the context menu.
I don't have this with the previous version.

Thanks

Context menu is shown on mouse down directly (instead of down – up)? For example, I see this behavior in Linux.
If it so, open about:config and set
rightlinks.debug = true

I'm using Firefox 2 on Vista.

Using rightlinks.debug = true solves my problem.

Thanks

Hi,

I have 2 requests:

1 - Could you update the Compatibility to the Final Firefox 3?
2 - Could you add an option to disable Right Links on specific links like the links to download files? When I click on such links it opens a blank tab before to download the file. It's the normal behavior but it's not good for me. I know I can use "Ctrl" to disable the Right Links but it should be better if it could be done automatically.

Thanks

It is already compatible, but I have forgotten to update the description here...

I'll think about it. But the main difficulty is in detection of such links.

Strange because I've installed it and my Firefox say it's not compatible with Firefox 3 so I had to disable the addon-compatibility.

Maybe you could "simply" check the extension at the end of the link and propose a list to set by the users like it's done in Tab Mix Plus?

Thanks

Really useful extension.

I would like to have the link open up in the tab already open. Is it possible with this extension ? Thanks in advance.

I think, this is AMO bug: I can change maxVersion (without uploading new version of extension), but after that the downloaded extension is incompatible.

I can add a regular expression for testing links like following:
rightlinks.checkForFilesLinks = true
rightlinks.filesLinksMask = "^[^\?]+\.(zip|rar|7z|exe)$"
And load match links in current tab like left-click.

Like Highlander ?
I can add compatibility with this extension.

Thanks for the response. What I would like is that left click opens in a new tab directly without context menu. And right click opens in the tab already open. Any ideas anybody ?

Yes that's really nice ! This could solve the blank tab issue.
But I would like too an option to disable Right Links (like if I use Ctrl) on this "rightlinks.filesLinksMask" to be able to control my download.

Thanks

It is possible, but now I have no time for development...
This can my other extension – Handy Links (warning: this is test versions!). Sorry, this page is now available only in Russian (and translation by Google is ugly :)).

Of course! You can hold any modifier (Ctrl, Alt, Shift or Meta in Mac OS) for fully disable Right Links.


Version 0.2.0.0 (2008.06.25)
Changes:
[+] Added intercepting of right-clicks on bookmarks (like links).
[x] The rightlinks.sendReferrer preference has been renamed on rightlinks.sendReferer (see HTTP referer) – be careful!
[+] The rightlinks.hideBookmarksPopup preference (not hide pop-up menu after bookmark opening, if false).
[+] If Tree Style Tab extension is available, then links (but not bookmarks) will be open in child tabs.
[+] Added compatibility with Highlander extension.
[+] Left-click is imitated for the "void" links with onClick, onMouseDown or onMouseUp-handlers.
[+] The rightlinks.notifyVoidLinksWithHandlers preference – show pop-up message after click on "void" links with handlers.
[+] The rightlinks.checkForFilesLinks preference – for opening links to files (the rightlinks.filesLinksMask preference) in current tab.
[*] Default hotkey is changed to F2 (in Firefox 3.0 works Ctrl+Shift+? [Shift+/ = ?], and Ctrl+Shift+/ in previous versions) – be careful!
