It works again! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I did a refresh of Firefox and it works again! :-) Too bad Firefox breaks so easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Migrating from QuoteURLText, I just installed this addon and it works beautifully.

If I may tender a suggestion, %date_short% variable (gmt_date or, even better, option to customize date/time templating in general) would save some editing effort.
For example: "Donnerstag, 18. August 2016 01:56:18" (dateTime via machine) => "2016/08/18 1:56am CET"

Thank you!

Great with CSE HTML Validator Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent add-on to use with CSE HTML Validator. I've created a page recommended this add-on ( Unfortunately though, there doesn't seem to be a variable that will return the same HTML source as 'View Page Source' does. Could this be added?

Thanks for the compliment. I've replied on the support forum but just to recap here: You should be able to copy the HTML using %html_source%. Just create a new template using %html_source% and set the Type to text instead of html. This should copy the plain HTML.

Hope this helps and is what you were looking for.

Brilliant. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Many thanks to the developer for creating this essential add-on.

I've moved my entire cache of links over to OneNote, and since then I've been looking for a way to get entire links (title and URL) into OneNote quickly and easily.

As it turns out, most solutions just get the URL, which is far from optimal. This add-on does the job, getting me the entire title link -- in just two clicks.

The only thing I would like to see is a toolbar button to get the title link. That would get it down to 1 click!

Nice work!

Waterfox 46.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Prefect add-on, but Easy Copy is no more functional after upgrade of my Waterfox to the version 46.0.1.

Thanks for the compliment. I just tested Easy Copy against Firefox 46.0 and it's working for me.

I see you're using *Waterfox*. I've never tested Easy Copy against that browser (or any other browser) so unfortunately I won't be able to give you a lot of support.

But I'd be willing to see how far we can get if you log an issue at the support site and describe the issue that you see so I can see how far I can help you. Eg. are the menu items not appearing or do they not work when you click on them? Did it work with a previous version of Waterfox? Is there anything in their latest release that might affect addons?

spacing issues Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great Add-on, but can't get the spacing % to work for me - re-installed new version, still having some issues. Overall, however, does what it says and saves a lot of time for me weekly.

Thanks for the compliment and glad you're enjoying Easy Copy. As to your issue, I'm not sure what you mean by "the spacing %".

If you could post an issue to the support site then I can try and help you. On there, can you please explain what you're trying to do and what problem you're getting (eg. a screenshot of what you're seeing or the template you're using).

well thought out extension!

one >tiny< niggle so far...

when clicking in the template input control, auto-clear the "Enter template here" string

freezes Firefox 43.0.1 when I click Options button
no escape except to close Firefox process
(added Feb 5)
I made a post at as you suggested but nobody replied. In the meantime I've kept Easy Copy installed but Disabled on Firefox 43. On a wild hunch I decided to Enable it again. Now there's no freeze when pressing the Options button. A mystery. It will take awhile to see if everything is working normally, starting with zero knowledge.

Don't know if it can help me or not. I've got a private collection of 2000+ movies in a MS Works database and would like to figure out the easiest way to import the IMDb ID for each, a 7-digit number. Entering the movie title at IMDb brings up the URL to the movie with the ID included, preceeded by "tt". For example:
So what I need is a rule to clip off everything prior to "tt" and everything after the next 7 digits, leaving the bare ID in clipboard. Actually it would work best if I could insert a single parenthesis symbol " in front of the ID. Then it could be pasted into the database. I suppose I'll have to enter each movie title individually because IMDb usually pops up several selections, but it would save quite a bit of mouse clicking and dragging.
Added Feb 11
Tried it and confirmed that copy/paste from Firefox into my MS Works database does not work, which was the main reason for my interest. That's not the fault of your add-on but some kind of interference by Firefox with Windows clipboard.

I've tested Easy Copy against Firefox 43.0 and the latest 44.0 and the Options button works in both versions without freezing Firefox. I'm on Windows 8.1.

It may be that one of your other extensions is causing the freeze. You can also try opening Options from the Firefox Add-ons screen (Ctrl+Shift+A) to see if it works from there.

However, the reviews is not meant as a place to help with issues, so please start a post on the Easy Copy support thread at:;amp;t=2421905

Please provide your OS, Easy Copy version and a list of other extensions that you're using.

EDIT (07/02/2016): I've replied to your support forum post. Thanks for updating the review.

EDIT (11/02/2016): Thanks for the update and I'm sad to hear the pasting didn't work. I see the review has 1-star. Was that just because of the default when you went to update the review?

exccellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

just need an feature.i use this command
now let say i copy some text with this command.
then i go another tab.and use same command.
now clipboard will replace with text in second tab
i want the text in second tab appended to first tab text
with one line space between them.
is this possible to adding?

edit:thank you for replay.sorry to say that but no it not what i want.hope some day you add such as thing
this can save alot time,when copy pasting

I'm glad you're enjoying Easy Copy. I've thought about a feature to append text to the clipboard but it just has too many things to think about to make it worthwhile for now.

In your case, you might actually be able to use the Copy All Tabs feature that comes with Easy Copy to do what you want. Under Easy Copy Options > Copy All Tabs, set the setting "Include the following tabs" to "Choose Tabs from All Windows".

Now you can open the Copy All Tabs menu from the right-click menu (just below the Easy Copy menu) and copy your template. You'll get a dialog that allows you to choose the tabs you want to copy and once you click copy it will copy all templates from all tabs into the clipboard, one after the other.

See for more details.

It might not be exactly what you want but will hopefully be good enough.

:( EC context menu won't even shown up on my old FF3.5! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

v2.5.1 don't work on my old FF3.5! so i've to revert back to v2.4.0 in order for it to work properly...

edit: v2.5.2 work as it should even on my old FF, thanks for the quick fix... :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on ( 

Thanks for reporting this. I think I know what's wrong and I suspect anything from FF 12 and older would be affected. I'll check whether it's something I can fix for the older versions, disable certain (new) features or require an upgrade.

For now, I'd also suggest your workaround of going back to v2.4.0. I'll update the support forum with the outcome, hopefully in the next couple of days.

EDIT (30/12/2014): Easy Copy 2.5.2 should work again for FF 12 and under. Please reinstall and try again. Normally I would recommend and favour upgrading over fixing an issue for older versions but since the change was small, easy and doesn't impact core features, I've made an exception and fixed it for older versions. See the release notes for more information.

Very good, but one think I need is ctrl+A across entire tabs. I havent been able to find such a addon for long :(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on ( 

Glad you enjoy Easy Copy. When you say "ctrl+A across entire tabs" do you mean you want to be able to copy all tabs with a shortcut key or just in general? Easy Copy does have a Copy All Tabs on the menu but it isn't integrated with Keyconfig yet (only single page copy can be done by shortcut key).

I have copying all tabs with a shortcut key on my todo list but I'm not sure when it will be done. Please follow the blog or support forum for updates. BTW, if you were talking about something different, please continue the discussion on the support forum as it's difficult to help out from reviews.

Hangs FireFox Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Easy Copy 2.4.0 - Blockes FF when about:addons opened. FF v32.0.2. Detected without doubt by disabling it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on ( 

I've tested Easy Copy on FF 28, 32 and 33 and everything works fine, even if I go to about:addons. I haven't heard of other users experiencing this type of issue either.

Could you please be a bit more specific about what the issue is when you say "it blocks FF". What about Easy Copy is blocking FF? Is it when you're copying a link or using the options dialog? And what do you mean by "blocks"? Does FF hang or are you taking about a dialog blocking FF?

It would help if you log an issue at the support site and if you could please provide more details as I can't really help you from the reviews.

how to add newline into text template Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am trying to create a text template "Title and URL" in which the title is separated from the URL by a new line:


However, this does not work.
There is no spacing whatsoever.
I tried \n but that did not help either.
And I do not want to use &amp;lt;br&amp;gt; as I believe that would force HTML output rather than plain text.

Any way to introduce newlines into text templates?


------- EDIT ---------

it was notepad i pasted into indeed, the newlines work in Microsoft Word for instance. thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on ( 

As long as your template type is "text" and you've entered a newline (Enter) between the two lines, then there should be a newline in the template when you paste in into another editor.

However, there is an issue with Notepad (on Windows) where the newline doesn't get picked up. But pasting it in any other editor should work, eg. Textpad, UltraEdit, Notepad++, Word, etc. For more details, see the support site (, specifically my reply on 19 May at 13:55).

If it's not Notepad that you're trying to paste it into, then please log an issue on the support site as it will be easier to help you with your issue. Please specify your template settings, what operating system you're on and which application you're pasting into.
