Thank you so much for the update! I know it's been super annoying for you to deal with the webextention change-over, but I certainly appreciate it.

The phrase that comes to my mind is closer to "soul crushing"...

The second beta version is now available:
https://flagfox.wordpress.com/2017/12/26/flagfox6b2/

Everyone already signed up for the Flagfox beta channel will receive the new version as an automatic update (unless you've disabled addon updates, of course).

I believe that you need to change the action of the left and right mouse buttons. In the new menu, there are additional Firefox items that can not be removed.
Please Dave, think about it.

The WebExtension API does not allow handling anything other than normal clicks, so changing anything there is currently impossible.

The WebExtension API does not allow changing any of the other Firefox items in that menu, so changing anything there is currently impossible. At least there, however, they realized how stupidly designed that is, and newer versions of Firefox clean it up quite a bit. (Nightly has the changes; I don't know which version exactly between release and there has them first)

As to the "More..." menu (sorry about the lack of localization), that's created by Flagfox for all menu items beyond the completely arbitrary limit of 6 that is imposed by the stupid WebExtension API. If you go into Flagfox's options and uncheck all but 5 actions, then it will go away and you'll just have those 5 plus the menu item to open the Flagfox options.

So, bottom line, I'm sorry, but Mozilla did some stupid crap here, and whilst I agree with you that it shouldn't be this way, I cannot change things on my end. :(

v6.0 Beta 2
*Paste action(s) from clipboard* is Not working :!:
*Paste (Ctrl+V*) is Not working :!:
*Paste from the Main Menu* is Not working :!:
Are you sure you have an action template in the clipboard? Specifically, something with a "{something}" style placeholder in it. The menu item in the options page only enables for that (e.g. it only enables if it detects an action to paste). So long as you have even just a URL in your clipboard, ctrl+v should at least open the new action dialog with it.

If you're sure of the above, please post anything/everything in the Firefox browser error console (ctrl+shift+J) into a reply here after attempting to do these things, and I'll see if it says anything I can use.

Also, please post your Firefox version and operating system and its version, as well. (please don't say "latest"; find the actual Firefox version number in the about dialog, please)

If the main menu is called when the left mouse button is clicked, then Firefox items are not visible.
Here's how to do in Wappalyzer:

or Whatruns:

I think that only when you call the main menu of the left mouse button you can return the old view of Flagfox.
