Summary

Important Compatibility Note:

Since September 2018, email links do not launch correctly in Yahoo mail. You may get a compose window without a To address, or just your inbox. This extension adds an item to the right-click context menu for email links (or for the page) to work around that.
User reviews
As of the last couple of days, does not seem to work anymore. Right click link works, but mailto does not. Yahoo is not an option in default mailto settings in firefox anymore, which makes this pretty much useless. To be fair, I'm more inclined to believe it's Mozilla's fault rather than the developer's. Firefox has been breaking extensions left and right.
