without alt text Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hello. I use this add-on a lot, but I do not need the "alt" text after the link text which sometimes really annoys me. I could not find a option for that. After unzip your xpi, I changed the code by just commenting the alt part of your overlay.js file. Could you update this feature or offer a option without "alt text" ? Thanks. I can send you my modification. Or if you do not agree with this feature, can I submit this add-on based on your code on this add-on platform? I am looking forward to your official update. Thanks again.

Already in works

I've already made a new (restartless) version of copy text which is awaiting approval of some patches I sent to Mozilla (to ensure people can still use the accesskey via the new SDK APIs) and that new version addresses your request by avoiding the alt text inclusion by default (while still keeping it as an optional preference). The pull request I am still waiting on is https://github.com/mozilla/addon-sdk/pull/723/ . (I am still getting over a cold or I would have already submitted a test for the patch...)

question on difference? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

hi: i could not find a way to contact you. you website does not have any email or any contact link.

I have not installed your add-on yet. But from your blurb I could not see difference.
>what is difference between the options in context menu.
>copy link location (standard ffox)
>copy link text (your addon)???

-----
i wanted an addon that allows me to use option key (or cmd key) and click on link, and it grabs the link location.i looked thru your add-ons and the ones you use, and saw nothing like this.seen anything?

Explanation

Hello Sea, Did you try either option? My addon lets you right-click to copy the text of the link. For example, if the link says "Go to Yahoo", it will copy "Go to Yahoo" to the clipboard instead of "http://www.yahoo.com". "Copy link location" already does what you want it to do (e.g., it would grab "http://www.yahoo.com"), though not through the exact way you wanted. But I think "copy link location" should work just as well; click on it or use your arrow keys to get to it once the menu is open. You can also use the letter underlined within the menu item's text to jump directly to that item...in this case you can type "a" to go directly to "Copy link location" as the letter "a" is underlined in that text (though you may need to click "a" multiple times if you have installed other context menu addons which also use "a" as their access key).

Does the job! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just updated to 1.5.3 and it now functions. Thanks to the developer for putting the work into this!

1.5.3 fixed an issue with 1.5.2. Try upgrading.

This add-on does not work. When I do copy selected text, I get some javascript in the clipboard and not the link text.

Unfortunately, as others have said, Copy Link Text has stopped working with the latest FF updates.

This is a great little add-on, and we would love to see it updated and working again.

Thanks

Have clumsily highlighted and copied link text zillions of times over the years, and this extension is a little big improvement over that. Tried to donate the very reasonable $1.50 as thanks but PayPal refused to let me log in via this site's payment dialog ('if you receive your security code via text message, you won't be able to complete the transaction'). May be worth considering accepting donations via Flattr.

Nice extension, but I found it makes exactly the same as Copy Link Name addon but with twice the size of that. It is working fine on FF 7.0a1 (nightly) after editing maxversion into install.rdf file.Also, for your info, CoLT addon is a richer feature addon of this kind.

It's amazing how incredibly useful this really is. One of those small little features you wouldn't normally think about having until you realize how annoying it is to try and highlight and copy a link.

It's simple, works very well, and doesn't bloat up the browser.

This is so basic and so needed. Lots of times block elements cant be highlighted, maybe with great difficulty. This addon should be restartless but 5 stars.

Has a slight bug and doesnt strip all tags and white space however.

Great job. I developed a similar context menu extension for IE years ago, and it's very convenient.

Helpful, works well Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a useful, simple add-on. It works so well, I often copy link text even when I don't have to. (Okay, I'm just kidding—but hey, this is the suburbs, so it's believable.)
