What is Paste as Markdown?

Paste as Markdown is a Firefox add-on that converts the content of your clipboard, be it from a text editor, graphics program, or another web page, into Markdown format when pasting it into any web form. It ensures your clipboard content remains unchanged and keeps everything within the browser for added security and convenience.

Paste as Markdown. Paste the content of the clipboard as Markdown, in any web form. The content of the clipboard can come from anywhere (a text editor, a graphics program, another web page, etc.) and be in rich text format with italics, bold, lists, etc., and it will be converted to Markdown upon pasting.

The clipboard content is unchanged, the conversion happens when pasting.

Everything happens within the browser, nothing is sent outside of the browser.

Some bugs in Firefox (two, in fact) make this extension somewhat fragile for this browser. However the latest version ( is working in FF 80.0.1.

Worked before but not anymore

Similar to other feedbacks. Doesn't work. I tried pasting using context menu, but nothing happened. Tried on multiple websites.

This never worked for me sadly. Everytime I clicked Paste as Markdown within the right-click context menu within a webpage or hit alt-c nothing happened.
