I used to have an option in my "right-click" drop down menu that said "Open link in a new tab" and it just disappeared. I used this option really often, and was wondering if there was any way to get it back?

Using Safari? Try and clearing the cache and then restart Safari again.

I still have it....
so, I would go to user/library/preferences and drag com.apple.safari.plist to the desktop and restart safari.
If this worked, you can trash the .plist

Can you press "Command" and click on a link to open it in a new tab?

Well, at least you have that!
You could try downloading the update again, and see if that fixes the initial problem though.

You might also try Onyx - head to 'Maintenance' - 'Rebuild' - check off 'Launch Services' and 'Execute'.

Link - make sure you download the correct one for your version of OS X.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
