Firefox Right Click Menu Doesn't Have Properties Option

After upgrading from Firefox 3.5.5 to Firefox 3.6, I couldn't see properties option in right click menu. When I right click on a link to find the link properties, I failed to find properties option in the right-click menu. At first, I thought my computer may have infected or some add-on conflicts causing this issue. I checked Mozilla support for the issue (missing element properties in Firefox 3.6 menu) and found that Mozilla team has removed this feature from their latest update. I cannot understand why they have removed this option and I couldn't find any equivalent feature. I am not alone, many users are not happy with this unexpected move of Mozilla team and we really want this element back as soon as possible.

Update: Mozilla team introduced a new plugin to bring back missing properties option in Firefox 3.6 at last.

Mozilla team introduces a new add-on to bring back the missing option in Firefox 3.6. To install this add-on to bring the missing option back to latest versions, visit the link below. Instructions to install this plugin is explained below.

Reports of Possible Bug

There is a report saying that the missing of properties option was due to a bug(#513147) and was not an intentionally made change. Since there is no official declaration about it yet, I won't be able to conclude whether it is a big issue. I am still waiting for an official announcement to clarify this issue.
