What is Copy Selected Links?
'Copy Selected Links' is a Firefox add-on devised to simplify the process of extracting URLs from selected text. By simply right-clicking on the selected portion containing links, users can instantly copy the URLs. Also, it facilitates opening these links in new tabs. The feature even works if you directly right-click on a link. Despite being no longer maintained, this add-on can still be downloaded and utilized. Its source code is also available for those who wish to fork it.

Summary

This addon won't be maintained further. I'm shelving this project due to lack of interest/utility and too much burden. The addon will remain available for download as long as the store allows, and the source on gitlab will also remain available to fork. I do have a greasyfork account and may publish works there in the future. I have mild intentions to reimplement the core functionality of CSL, IBCP, and DID as public userscripts.

Available for Chrome too.

Functionality When you select text in a page and your selection contains links, you can right-click anywhere on the selection (or use a browser hotkey) to copy the URLs and/or texts of all those links at once, or open them in tabs.

Usage notes

  • right-clicking a link without having selected links will also show the context menu item. Clicking it will simply copy the URL of the link you right-clicked.
  • selecting links, then right-clicking another link and clicking the context menu item will copy the URLs of the links you selected and of the link you right-clicked
The Options screen will automatically open after add-on updates if they force a change to any of your settings.

Please rate/review/donate! :) A lot of time and work goes into creating my addons, and making changes or troubleshooting issues for users.

This addon conflict with another addon, eg: "enable-selection". If you enable both, then "Copy Selected Links" will not work.
