What is Right Click Link New Tab?

The 'Right Click Link New Tab' is a unique web-extension for Firefox, designed to open any selected link in a new tab when right-clicked. Aside from the usual process, a context menu pops up with a Ctrl+click. Please note that this feature is not applicable to content on addons.mozilla.org since the add-on operates by injecting javascript code (content script) into each page you scroll through.
