Copy ShortURL 4.0.1 Compatible with Firefox 57+
by Fred Wenzel
Copy ShortURL lets you instantly create a short URL for web pages that you visit, so you can easily share links with friends.
About this Add-on
A number of major websites expose their own short URLs for any entry on their webpages, among these: youtube (“youtu.be/…”), flickr (“flic.kr/…”), Wordpress.com, Arstechnica, Techcrunch, and many more.
If, however, the site does not name its own short URL, the add-on automatically falls back to making a short URL using is.gd (or a user-defined shortening service).
Either way, after a fraction of a second, you end up with a short URL in your clipboard, ready to be used in tweets, emails, forum posts, or wherever else you please.
Feedback is greatly appreciated!
Created with Mozilla's new Web Extension interface.

Note: I am not in any way affiliated with is.gd and have chosen their service for the fallback functionality purely arbitrarily because they expose a convenient REST API for me to use.
* re-enabled goo.gl shortener (generate your own API key for free with Google)
* multiprocess compatible
* (soon) available for Chrome AND Firefox
This add-on is not compatible with your version of Firefox because of the following:
