The idea is good but it doesn't work on links (e.g. like "Copy Link Location") or in the adress bar (ff 31 ubuntu) and I couldn't wither manage to get the shortcuts working... Not sure if that's a missing feature or a bug.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168-signed).
The copy link menu is not modified by this addon. That's not a bug if nothing shows. I'm on FF31 and W7 and the menu still appears in the address bar. It should also appear in the adress bar with FF on Linux.
Great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I just woke up at night with the same idea, and I was about to to start developing a totally similar tool, but instead I found this great extension. Exactly what I needed.
Thank you, it's awesome !
Too much text in Filter pane, though (in French translation). It's a good practice to provide help but, in this case, it clutters the interface. In my opinion, you should provide documentation only in the addon's details page and/or webpage.
Thanks for the comments ! I'm afraid the English and German translations are as long as the French (original) version.
I'm too lazy to build a web page :-)

I need COPY FILTERED in address bar, input box and text link too. Add COPY menu please, Thank you.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed).
Copy filtered in address or form field
You could copy the url(s) in a file and use a perl script or vim or whatever tool to modify these ?
What the point of copying (and changing) a string in a form field since you just typed that string ?
Adding the copy-filtered menu in the address bar or in a form field would clutter the interface.

Exactly what I was after, THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH
I use it to put quote marks around a copied text. It's useful for Google search if you're looking for a "specific phrase"....

Almost what I need, but I think it would be much more often useful to *copy in the clipboard* a filtered text rather than filtering a text already in the clipboard.
You might happen to have something in the clipboard coming from another program that you want to filter out but I think it is more common the opposite situation. It would be great if you added a command in the context menu of any selection to "copy filtered".
By the way the shortcuts seem to work only if you find one that has nothing else assigned to it; you should maybe allow to choose other combinations in addition to ctrl+shift+; I think this combination is also the reason why I can't use characters that require the alt-gr key. I don't know if this is wanted but with this ctrl+shift combination at least for keys other than the alphabetic ones you have to insert the character produced when the shift key is pressed, for example "!" instead of "1" if on your keyboard pressing "shift+1" outputs "!", otherwise the shortcut will not work.
Another thing, the url option is not clear, you should call it maybe "Menu" (and you should probably check it initially for the newly added filters); it might be useful to also have an option to disable filters entirely ("Enable").
Other thing I've seen, a blank space is always added at the end of the pasted text, it would be better to leave the user type it if it needs it.
Finally, for more complex uses the interface seems confusing, it appears that you mixed a function to extract text (used when the substitute string is not given) and one to replace text (used otherwise), you have to read the options' notes carefully to understand how it works. I think for a future version (the "copy filtered" is more important) you should separate the two functions, maybe even simply with a check column, this could also allow more uses.
The most useful usage of this extension I see is (would be) to extract the fragment identifier of a url (with "(#.*)" ), it is useful with local copies or different versions of a document, for example the W3C specifications (a thing which may deserve an extension of its own).
