IE7 'right click' 'Open in New Tab' is missing

IE7 'right click' 'Open in New Tab' is missing

IE7 'right click' 'Open in New Tab' is missing

(OP)
On Internet Explorer 7 - when you right click on a link you should see an option to 'open in new tab'.

I just upgraded to ie7 on this PC and that option is missing. Tabs are working and I use, say Ctrl+Click to open a link in a new tab.

Any ideas anyone as to how I can fix this - I would rather use a right click than have to use the keyboard as well as the mouse.

RE: IE7 'right click' 'Open in New Tab' is missing

some websites do not respond to the right click - open in tab option

you might try to click on the little red X in the upper right corner of the tool bar and then try to open another page in the tab option

I solved it myself - thanks. T'was the Google Toolbar

Solution.
Uninstall & re-install the Google Toolbar (from Google - not a saved version)

As far as I am concerned this is the Google toolbars last chance. Don't get me wrong - I like it. It is a useful add-on for me.  BUT........

I hate the way it auto updates without asking.
I am getting fed up with the way it has been screwing up Internet explorer lately. (It was causing ie to crash - not play videos and the Google toolbar wasn't working properly either a few weeks ago when Google released a new version and updated my toolbar - without permission!)

Now - if someone has a way of stopping it auto updating I would appreciate knowing how. Stopping the google updater process doesn't seem to work.

BTW - I don't know why this worked - I just figured that since the Google toolbar had been the cause of the last two woes I had with Internet explorer it might be the cause of this one too. It seems to me that having the Google bar installed when you upgrade Internet explorer is a complication to many!

So my advice is to uninstall it before accepting the upgrade to ie7.
