I used to have an options with right mouse click to ignore any errors in the editor, but it no longer apears. What happened to it? This is worse than irritating as it makes it difficult to see if the file contains errors. For example, when appending a table with a cell of strings the editor gives an error saying that I should be using square braces. I now have to continuously go through every error to see if it is something that should be ignored or not.

It now seems to be working again. It must have been the latest update that I installed the other day that changed things.

The live script should behave the same as a plain code (.m) file, when it comes to these fix and suppression options (as of R2020a).
When I add a bunch of semicolons to a live script in R2020b and then right-click on the warning, I see the following options: "Remove semicolon.", "Suppress Message...", and "Open Message or Expand Details".
It sounds like the issue has resolved itself, but as a workaround you could try inserting the suppression manually. For example, you could copy the relevant code to the plain code editor, then suppress using "In This File". This will create a directive like "%#ok<*NOPRT>". You can then paste this into your live script to suppress the message.
