  • This addon was good when it was up-to-date. Since there wasn't any Multi Process Compatible addon for copying plain text, I made a new one

  • For anyone considering this plugin, I have "re-created" this abandoned plugin. Here is the official Mozilla Addons link: [ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/copy-as-plain-text ]. My plugin works fine in Linux, windows, and on Mac too. As of Nov/24/2012, it supports installation up to v20.0a1.

    If you want a version that goes up to v1000, see my post on the plugin's dedicated website here: http://forum.infas.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2 My plugin officially supports Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey, however it is under testing for other platforms such as Nightingale, etc.
  • I was missing this little beauty ! It is back now! Thank you so much. It now works perfectly with the Auto Copy extension.
  • @mehtuus

    Thanks very much mate, Copy Plain Text - EVE 0.3.4.EVE10.0a1 works perfectly with Auto Copy 1.01.
  • If you want, I made a bumped version working until Firefox 9. You will find it here: https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=961dc53580315d8d&sc=documents&id=961DC53580315D8D%21102. Beware! There's a french translated version (-fr), and an english one (-en). Make the right choice!
  • I downloaded it from http://linux.softpedia.com/progDownload/Copy-Plain-Text-Firefox-Download-21892.html It says Linux, but it works equally well on Windows 7. Click on "xpi (Softpedia Mirror RO)". Don't accept the automatic download, that will only try and fail to install it. Instead, right click on "click here" and chose "save link as". I then opened it in 7-zip, right-clicked on install.rdf and chose "edit". In the opened file, look for "em:maxVersion=" and change it to em:maxVersion="7.*". Close the document, and when you get the dialog "File 'install.rdf' was modified. Do you want to update it in the archive?", choose OK. Then in FF, choose open file and find the copyplaintext-0.3.5.xpi where you saved it on your hard drive. It will install like any other addon. I used the same procedure for FF5 and 6, and it worked fine in those versions, just as it does in FF7, at least so far (two days).

    Oh, and if you have the old version still installed, you'll have to begin by removing it.
  • This is one of those add-ons you can't live without.. Any body has any ideas on a compatible "copy plain text" with Firefox 7.0

  • This extension has become one for me that I can't do without. Unfortunately doesn't work with ff7. Another reviewer had posted an updated xpi that worked well with ff6 (thanks for that btw), and thought I'd try in ff7, but wont install. If you have a way to make this work in ff7, please post it. Thanks
  • Copy Pure Text works with FF 6, but not with TB 6................ I hope in future Copy Plain Text will work with TB 6 and higher
  • WAS GOOD. I recommend all to check out a redone of this add-on:

  • Many thanks for the link - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/52174/copyplaintext-0.3.5%20-%20FF6.xpi
    Really cool plugin!! Don't forget to set up the settings of the plugin (I turn on all checkboxes, because all of them very useful).
  • Does work niceley with Firefox 5.0. A very simple, but very useful little addon.
  • With Mozilla's new accelerated rollout of 3 months for each version, I think it is smarter to set maxVersion to 9, no? Or even better, can I change it to more than one digit?
  • Here's a version of the XPI where I've changed the maxVersion to 6.0:
  • where you did the changes for FF5?
    If I change the install.rdf and repack to *.xpi, Firefox says file is corrupt.
  • Also works with Firefox 5 after changing install.rdf as described by vladimirr. Verry nice ;-)))
  • http://xsidebar.mozdev.org/modifiedmisc.html#copyplaintext
    Works with SeaMonkey 1.0 - 2.1.*, Firefox 2.0 - 3.7.*, Thunderbird 2.0 - 3.1.*
    For latest versions of browsers edit maxVersion in install.rdf
  • Now I have my Copy Plain Text back in FF4! WOO HOO!!!
  • copy plain text 0.3.5 :

    (The page is "under" Linux but it works perfectly with my Windows 7)
  • Found a work around - Extended Copy Menu with fix version for Firefox 4.0
  • Very useful. A must have. So far it's worked perfectly with FF 4 RC.
  • I've been using Copy Plain Text version 0.3.5 with the latest Firefox 3.6.10 (currently 3.6.13) for a while now, and haven't noticed any problems.

    I couldn't remember where I got it so searched in Google & found a few links; this one works:

    I compared ("diff") the contents of each file contained in the .xpi from that link with those in the .xpi I had installed and they were all identical, so it should be safe. It's a useful little extension.

  • This was an awesome addon. No longer supported. For those of you looking for this functionality, I recommend you use "Extended Copy Menu". Has this feature and more.

  • This extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/134/), as well as the update at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/14006/ does not work on my copy of FF 3.6.11. (From the comments I've seen, I'm not alone.)

    HOWEVER, there is a revised version (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/129688/) that seems to work OK for me (on two of my machines, so far). The author seems to have had some trouble with the extension title and that almost made me skip it. It appears to work fine, though.

    I wonder what happened to Jeremy?
