Copy Plain Text

By Mozilla Free Editors' Rating has removed the direct-download link and offers this page for informational purposes only.

Editors' Review Staff Feb 27, 2009

This simple, but straightforward, Firefox add-on lets you copy any text format while browsing the Web and paste it as plain text. It worked for us without a hitch.

You'll find Copy Plain Text in your add-ons menu. There, the options menu lets you format the copied text, including trimming space around the text, and removing extra spaces and lines. The add-on operates through your context menu. We highlighted text on a Web page, including pictures and headlines, right-clicked, and selected the copy as the plain text option. When we pasted it into a MS Word document, the plain text appeared.

We appreciate this free add-on for its ease of use and reliable performance. It's a great tool to have on hand while browsing the Web.
