How to Enable Secret “Click and Hold Context Menu” Option in Mozilla Firefox?
If you are a Mozilla Firefox user, you might be knowing about the secret about:config page which allows you to tweak various hidden settings in Mozilla Firefox which are generally not available in its Preferences window. You can enable/disable lots of features using this secret page.
I was looking for something in about:config page and found a very interesting feature I was not aware of. This secret feature allows you to open context menu (right-click menu) for a link by clicking and holding on it for a few seconds.
I wonder why this option is not provided in Firefox Preferences window? Its a very handy feature and you don't need to right-click on a link to show its context menu. Just click and hold for a few seconds.
To enable this secret feature, you can use following simple steps:
1. Open Firefox and type about:config in the addressbar and press Enter. It'll confirm, click on I'll be careful, I promise! button.
2. Now type context_menus in the Filter box and look for following boolean key:
3. The entry "ui.click_hold_context_menus" would be set to false. Double-click on it or right-click on it and select "Toggle". It'll set its value to true.
4. That's it. Now just click and hold on a hyperlink and Firefox will show the context menu.
