    Firefox deskCut Problem (Firefox V0.9.2)

    I want to changeover from IE to Firefox but one of the features I want in Firefox which IE has, is the "Send to Desktop" function

    I have been told that Firefox has many Add-ins available and the one that achieves my desire is "deskCut"

    I found where to download it and then I "installed" it in accordance with the instructions by dragging the deskCut file into the "Extensions" window

    Then when I re-open "Extensions" again, it show that deskCut was an "Extension" OK !!

    I then went looking for the function in the drop-down menus but couldn't find it #@$%^&

    However, the Firefox Help file told me that the deskCut function is in the "Context" menu

    Firstly what is the "Context" menu and how do I find it ?

    I can't see a "Send to Desktop" or anything like it in any of the Drop-down menus

    Awaiting help

    Cheers n Tears

    If you right click the link, or graphic, or whatever, in Firefox, you'll get the context menu. I believe your desired command will be on that menu.

    Depending on who's talking:

    Context menu = Shortcut menu = right-click menu

    If you consider that the menu from a right-click changes based on application, location, etc - that it changes based on the context of what you are doing - then it makes more sense. Unfortunately, in the world of computing, jargon is always a killer!
