Removing items from context menus.

Specifically, I need the "Send Image" option in web browsers to go away. Permanently.

In the course of my jorb, I have to save a lot of images. (We're updating our website and the jerk who put the thing together the first time kind of screwed it up.) I'm kind of clumsy in terms of mousing precision, so I hit "Send Image" at least once out of eight times. Then my dinosaur machine has to start up Thunderbird and I have to wait for ten seconds until I can have control back from a program I didn't even want started in the first place.

HALP PLZ

Ooh, yeah, I hate that thing. When I'm saving porn... errr, I mean pics of kittens, I sometimes click it. Yeah, if anyone knows a good way to get rid of it, let me know (I use Firefox).

Try this. If not I know for sure that nlite works.

Based on the descriptions, these seem like it would have no effect on the right-click menu of Firefox. Razor, are your referring to IE, FF, Opera, or what?

Mainly a customized version of Firefox with an unfortunate name ("lolifox"), but I occasionally use Firefox 2.0.

Woohoo! You can probably do what you want to with the userChrome override stuff.

Like, to get rid of "Send Image", put this in a file called userChrome.css in your firefox profile's chrome directory:


#context-sendimage {
display: none !important;
}

Link to a listing of chrome elements that can be modified.

No luck with that, unfortunately. I added that text to the userChrome.css in both the profile's chrome directory and Firefox's chrome directory and restarted it; it didn't help (either browser, in fact). I guess I'll just have to be more careful about where I click.

Try using the keyboard to select the menu item instead of choosing via the mouse. A "v" will get the image save selection, and it's pretty far away from "n" on a QWERTY keyboard.

And, assuming you use your right hand for the mouse, you can keep your left in place while right-clicking with the other hand.

Huh. That's odd. I just tried it on mine, and it worked. However, I am running FF 2.0 on linux. I wouldn't have expected that to make a difference here, but perhaps it does.
