Created attachment 8494141 [details]
illustrative screenshot (e10s on left, non-e10s on right)

STR:
1. Install Linky add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/linky/
2. Go to any page that has a bunch of links. ex. https://news.ycombinator.com/
3. Select link text and right-click

Expected:
- Linky menu populated with options like "Open Selected Links in tabs"

Actual:
- all Link context menu options are greyed out
Gemal, are you the author of the Linky add-on?

Your add-on seems to be broken with multiprocess Firefox (e10s). If you have any questions about e10s support, just drop by the #e10s IRC channel on irc.mozilla.org. MDN also has a good introduction:

The developer has been notified through AMO. However, the add-on hasn't been updated in over 4 years.
Oh man, how can I get through bug triage without Linky?
