Gmail is showing me this menu instead of the regular right-click menu. Particularly, I need "Open in Tab" for individual mails.
How do I get back to the "regular" Chrome/Safari right-click menu?

You can't change the contextual menu (activated by Control Click or "Right-Click") because it's embedded within the App; this includes the HTML code of a web page.
Contextual menus pop up when the user Control-clicks or right-clicks over an object. Safari presents different contextual menus when the mouse pointer is over the toolbar, Bookmarks bar, an extension bar, the tab bar, or the contents of a webpage.
Your extension can add menu items to the contextual menu that pops up over web content. You control the actions of the menu item by installing a listener function for the "command" event in either your global HTML page or in an extension bar.
Essentially, what this is saying is that the developer of the (web) app sets the contents of the contextual menu. If they don't set it, it will be the default for whatever is set in Safari/Chrome/Firefox/etc.
If your goal is to open a link in a new tab, hold Cmd while clicking to bypass the menu. Holding Shift while clicking opens the link in a new window. I have found these options quicker than right clicking as my left hand rarely leaves the keyboard and I don't have to parse through a menu to find the item I want.
You can create a bookmarklet to disable non-native contextual menu.
Add this code as a bookmark addres:
You'll need to "open" it whenever you want to disable the non-native contextual menu. Maybe there's some way of launching this atomatically, but I don't know how to do it.
