I cannot find anywhere on a Comment something I can just right-click and copy so I can have a direct link to it. Is there any way to link to a specific comment?

    Doesn't look like it, no.

    You can get a link to a whole post (from the text like "Yesterday 5:23 PM") but AFAIK not to an individual comment on a post.

There doesn't seem to be a way to right-click and link to them yet, but there is an ID on the element you can use to build a link:

For example, https://plus.google.com/+FeliciaDay/posts/DKroN5F74Sy#z13jifpa0rnrzrpud23ky1h4wrvagfzxp04#1413850339753657

If you inspect the element, you can see that each comment is wrapped in a DIV tag with an ID attribute, which you can use to build a link. I'm sure it would be possible to build some kind of browser plugin or script that would let you create links to comments using this.

  • What a mess. This works (and is the best answer), iff you're on the post's individual page, and only if the floating toolbar is already displayed. I've had the page scroll to the # but then have everything after the # erase after the bar appears. Here's a link to a specific post that seems to reload as the floating bar is shown (FF 38.0.1).

  • And here's it not working on the main page unless the comment has already been exposed. That makes some sense, but it'd be nice if they had an API to make this cleaner.

  • Is this still accurate? I can see things like commentid="z131hbdo4obmfhgh504cgvww2yv1vrm5j0g#1528137166749957", but no id= anywhere.
