Shorten URL (

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used this addon happily for quite a while now. The only feature I really use, though, is the "Copy to Clipboard" option (not any of the specific share methods like Twitter, Facebook, etc.). It is a fantastic shortcut for sending the URL for the current page to a friend ... a real time saver!

However, since upgrading to FF29, I no longer have the icon either in the Addon Bar (which I've added back) or anywhere else when only "Copy to Clipboard" is enabled in the Shorten URL options. If I enable other options, Twitter, Facebook, etc., those icons DO appear in my toolbar. But, I would love to have the icon for "Copy to Clipboard" (that used to be in the Addon Bar) back! Some pages, notably Google Maps, don't allow right-clicking to bring up the context menu!


-- UPDATE --

With thanks to the developer's quick response, I did get "Copy to Clipboard" as an icon again. For some reason, the "Copy to Clipboard" icon was not appearing in the "Customize Toolbar" window. I removed this add-on, restarted Firefox, and reinstalled this add-on. The icon didn't automatically appear in any toolbar, but this time the icon DID appear in the "Customize Toolbar" window so I was able to drag it to my Addon Bar, where it used to be.
