FF 16 missing "send link"

FF 16 missing "send link" nobody 10/9/12 2:43 PM
When on a web page I often want to shar it with others.  Up until this
version there was an option in the r-click menu to "send link" which
worked well for this behavior.  It is gone in this version.  One can
still go to the file menu and "email link" but I see no way to do if
from the r-click menu.  Am I missing something?  I wonder why it was
removed...

I wonder also.  Can I bring it back by changing something in the config
file?  I use it at least twice a day to send links to friends.
Re: FF 16 missing "send link" Cal Tinson 10/9/12 4:45 PM
Ditto - strange change.

At least there's File/Email Link - don't know whether that was there
before or not.

PS: why did you remove the attribution to the OP?

Removed from the context menu, and replaced by Email link in the file menu.

Interesting link. So, for all the hundreds of thousands of users of FF,
four people voted for it and it became the law.  Sounds about right.
Re: FF 16 missing "send link" WaltS 10/9/12 6:30 PM
Four people voted for it when?. Original bug was posted on 2004-03-31.

There is a gap between comment 8 posted on 2007-09-11,

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=239307#c8

and comment 9 posted on 2012-06-12 when the bug was assigned to Jared Wein,

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=239307#c9

Who says they don't work on old bugs.

What he means is your penchant for always using "--->" instead of using a
real attribute such as "On 10/9/2012, nobody said".  See above, where you
did it again. I've often wondered why you do that. Why don't you fix your
newsreader so it correctly posts an attribute?

Yes, because I know you could fix in in seconds. Why do you want to upset

We have a winner.  That is about the stupidest "improvement" to the
browser I have ever seen, and I've been here longer than most.

* what gets fixed is not based on number of votes
* it didn't become "the law" (although I'm not sure what you mean by
"the law")

It's an old bug, and the label changed from "Send link" to "Email link",
so the developer probably thought he would fix the old bug while
relabelling the left over instances.

Guys, please take this discussion somewhere else, and keep the
discussion in here focused on helping people use Firefox.
Re: FF 16 missing "send link" Ron Hunter 10/10/12 12:36 AM
Well, of course, THEY never used it, so it was redundant, right?

Re: FF 16 missing "send link" HarveyG 10/10/12 3:51 AM
Ditto. Is it gone by mistake or intentional (forever)?

Re: FF 16 missing "send link" Herb 10/10/12 4:12 AM
FWIW, I liked the "Send Link" context menu option, but it didn't work
reliably for me, i.e. on some web pages I had to try different areas of
the web page for the option to show up in the context menu. Never got to
the bottom of why this was the case. Presumably others experienced this too?

I hadn't really been aware of the option im the File menu.

I use this functionality on a regular basis, and I dare say I'll quickly
get used to the Alt+F, followed by E shortcut, although it does seem a
shame for "Send Link" to have been removed from the context menu.
Perhaps it will be re-introduced again in due course?

Intentional.
Re: FF 16 missing "send link" Ron Hunter 10/10/12 3:17 PM
I always used the 'send link' in the File menu, so I didn't notice it
was gone from the context menu until someone else mentioned it.
Everyone uses FF a bit differently.  The context menus tend to get
rather long, so they were trying to eliminate redundancy.

Re: FF 16 missing "send link" erich...@yahoo.co.uk 10/10/12 7:26 PM

People who want everything to be an option are more suited for SeaMonkey
<http://www.seamonkey-project.org/>.

Firefox is meant to be more streamlined, not overwhelming users. Extreme
customization is left to extensions. For more about extensions, see
<http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/find-and-install-add-ons-add-features-to-firefox>.

If you read the bug report, you'll see that there were attempts to get
data and feedback.
Re: FF 16 missing "send link" westca...@gmail.com 10/14/12 6:09 AM
But that only sends the page link. I see no way to send a link within a page, light the right-click context menu would do.

Well, that rots. I used the right click so regularly.

THIS is a definite reduction in functionality and should be brought
back. Who wants to scroll/move away from the interface to use an old
fashioned drop down menu when a quick right click and select is (or was)
available! A purely dumb change in the true sense of 'dumb!'

How do you propose sending someone a link from a page in the same number of clicks?  You used to be able to just:
1) Right-click -> Send Link

You now have to:
1) Right-click -> Copy Link Location
2) Go to File -> Email Link...

It ADDED another step.  It is not the same. You now overwrite anything you had in the clipboard just to send a link, in 2 steps, as opposed to sending it with one step and not having your clipboard touched.

I am not trying to blame you, just highlighting the issue with this.  It was changed to make things 'easier', yet it made more steps and interferes with another function (the clipboard) to send a link.
Re: FF 16 missing "send link" Herb 10/16/12 2:06 AM
I can recommend the Alt+F, followed by E shortcut.

No need to scroll/move away from the interface.

Not necessarily.

I use the shortcut Alt+F, followed by E.

This really isn't the place to voice opinions about development. That's
what the "Submit Feedback" item in the Help menu is for. If you'd like
to get into an actual discussion about Firefox development, that's what
the mozilla.dev.apps.firefox newsgroup is for. And design-specific
issues can be discussed in mozilla.dev.usability.

Try, "File>Email Link", same number of steps.

You used to be able to right click on a link on a page and send that link
via email. Now you have to either open the link, or copy and paste into the
email mail client. Including having to open the client, this creates
several more steps. Mozilla has gone backwards with this move by reducing
operability.

Some folks 'never' is other folks 'always'.
I use Send Link daily... Well, used to anyway.
I really appreciated how it would compose an email without having
Thunderbird open or opening Thunderbird and leaving it open.

Off to check the ESR version. Maybe it hasn't been neutered yet!
Re: FF 16 missing "send link" Ron Hunter 10/17/12 9:22 AM
Just looked, and neither Chrome, nor IE9 has the ability.  It's in the
interface on IE, but greyed out.  No such thing in Chrome.
Re: FF 16 missing "send link" clay 10/17/12 10:16 AM
ah, Now it makes sense.
The continuing quest to make Firefox just like the others, even if it
means removing functionality that has been in place since (before) day one.

Good news is it is still in the ESR release so for now you'll find me on
that channel.

Only if you have opened the link in a new tab or window as far as my
testing shows.

Test site cnn.com, test link "Nike ends contract with Armstrong".

Using Firefox 16.0.1, I have to open the link, then your method works.

Using Firefox 15.0.1, I can right click, and select "Send Link..." from
the context menu.

It is still available from the file menu, which is more than they other

Just where do you right click to do that?  If the page isn't open, where
are you clicking?

Re: FF 16 missing "send link" clay 10/17/12 12:59 PM
Right click on a link in a page>Send Link sends that link.
Can't do that with Alt+f>e.

Right click on a non link area of a page>Send Link sends the link to the

Right click on a blank page sends about:blank...

If you look at the bug report cited in this thread, you'll see that this
change was planned in March of 2004 (before Chrome existed). You'll also
see a comment from June of this year that cites test pilot data showing
how many people use the feature.

So please take the time to do research before making judgment calls
about development decisions. If you don't, it is considered an ignorant
attack.
If you don't know why a change was made, just ask.

And remember, this isn't the place to voice opinions about development.
That's what the "Submit Feedback" item in the Help menu is for. If you'd
like to get into an actual discussion about Firefox development, that's
what the mozilla.dev.apps.firefox newsgroup is for. And design-specific
issues can be discussed in mozilla.dev.usability.

Look up two posts.  How would one send a link from within a page?

I think this is another very unfortunate change motivated by people who
don't use the feature and ignoring other users needs.  Reducing the
number of items in the r-click menu (by one) is meaningless.

It isn't sending me to a different browser, just reducing my
appreciation of this one.

I had already responded earlier to that aspect; however, it wasn't at
all clear that that was what cplager was referring to since it does open
the email client with the current URL. Thus, the reason for my inquiry.

In effect, ask a vague question, expect to get an inquiry requesting
clarification.

Re: FF 16 missing "send link" WaltS 10/18/12 5:08 AM
I mean using cnn.com as a test site, or a site of your choice. Pick any
link.

Using Firefox 16.0.1, to use Alt + f, followed by e, you have to
activate the link in a new tab or window.

Previously as seen on Firefox 15.0.1 and below, you could just hover
your cursor over a link, right-click on it and select "Send Link..."
from the context menu. Alt +e, followed by f, doesn't work on an
unactivated link.

Doesn't matter to me. I usually copy and paste the link in a message I
am sending if it includes a link.
Re: FF 16 missing "send link" Ron Hunter 10/18/12 7:59 AM

Which goes to show that different people do the same functions different
ways.  Whatever works better for YOU is the 'right way'.  It seems that
the devs aren't using the context menu, but then neither do I, and I am
a mouse guy.  So, maybe that is why they removed it.  At least this
change has data to back up the decision.

Re: FF 16 missing "send link" Ron Hunter 10/18/12 1:06 PM

Exactly what happened with the Status Bar.  They eliminated it, and an

They planned on putting the add-ons bar there before the extension was
created. The "battle" was about where to show link destination URLs.

Nothing but double talk...for what reason, I don't understand.

What is most interesting is that we don't hear a word directly from the
developers.
Only from those who act as their surrogates.

Wouldn't we have a more mature conversation if we could converse
directly with them?

This really isn't the place to voice opinions about development. That's
what the "Submit Feedback" item in the Help menu is for. If you'd like
to get into an actual discussion about Firefox development, that's what
the mozilla.dev.apps.firefox newsgroup is for. And design-specific

If there's a change that you want to know why it was made, asking in
here should be fine. But be wary of those whose answers are based on
speculation.

They don't generally post here, hopefully preferring to spend their
time working on the browser.  Links have been posted to their
reasoning;  their decisions and the reasons are public.

Hi, I'm a little confused.

Does this Add-on allow you to right-click an active link (only) within a
page,
or does it merely send the entire page like when choosing File - Email Link?

Re: FF 16 missing "send link" Ron Hunter 10/29/12 10:34 AM
Email link ONLY sends the link, not any information ON the page.  the
right-click process will send the link you have selected.  It also
doesn't send anything else on the page.

Suppose I'm on a page with 5 links, I don't want to open the links. I just want to Right Click and Send Link. It's quick, it's easy, and now it's gone. Alt F + E doesn't work in this situation, unless I actually open each link.

If this was software I purchased, I'd be on the phone with someone until it was back the way it was. And it would be put back, because without users, your software is nothing.

There are extensions that add back this feature.  Check them out.  Note
that just because you use this feature, doesn't mean everyone does.  I
never noticed, partly because I consider it good internet etiquette to
make sure a link is good before sending it to anyone else.  Ie, I visit
the link to check it before sending.

Oh, wouldn't that be _loverly_!  I wonder how difficult it would be for Firefox developers to give us that option.  I use Right-click > "Send link" so often that I'm not going to upgrade from Firefox 15.0.1 until it's put back in.

The only thing that's changed is that Firefox hides the "Tabs on Top"
checkbox in the UI to discourage new users from switching to it. If you
have tabs on bottom already, nothing will change, and if you make a new
profile, you can toggle a hidden pref to put tabs on the bottom:
browser.tabs.onTop

I guess I know what you mean by, "Sigh,"  .... but on the other hand, I am

about 10 more than I'd like to have).  I, too, am tired of having to seek out
extensions to make up for shortcomings introduced by upgrades.  I do not
consider - There is an extension that fixes that - to be a real solution.
These quick fix extensions (e.g., add one item *back* into a context menu) are
stop-gap measures - temporary patches that should really be folded into the
main product.  I am still holding at FF13 because it has things the way I like
them ..... or have settled for.  Every extension adds one more fold to the
convolution of troubleshooting when FF misbehaves.  I wish I did not have the

That post in mozilla.dev.apps.firefox is mostly about removing that pref
from about:config aka bug 755593 IIRC.

People are still having trouble finding the solution in this long
thread, so I'm posting again just to add a [solved] tag to make it more
likely they'll see the extension.

Thanks again for finding and posting the extension, Walt.

WaltS should have added the [solved] tag when he posted the fix.

I've found that nearly all the links I receive by email, with nothing
else added, are links to packages of malware (such as over 300 computer
viruses that will be installed if I click the link).

Does the old capability at least allow adding a few lines describing
what the link leads to?

Yes.  It just opens an e-mail composition with the link already in
the body.  You can type whatever description you want.

Indeed, and so does the convenient "Alt+F, followed by E" keyboard
shortcut, which usually also adds meaningful text in the subject line.
