MakeLink adds a right-click context menu item allowing easy copying of links to the clipboard in HTML, forum-code or straight-down-the-line "text (URL)" format, cutting-out the fiddle-farting around. It works 3 ways: by using a right-clicked link's own URL & link text for the new link; on a selected block of text it uses the page's URL as the new link URL & the selected text as the new link text; or clicked anywhere it uses the page's URL & title for the new link. Basically, this thread in the Make Link 2.0 - MozillaZine Forums (I just used the third Makelink function to paste that!) will explain the details, but the Firefox 1.0 compatible version is available here (save that .xpi to disk & open in firefox to install it) or go to page 5 of the thread to grok. So far, I've had no issues with it. It is also configurable from what I can see, which I haven't played with, yet. Off ye go. I love Firefox.
Firefox Extension: Makelink 2.0 - this is really good if, like me, you love Mozilla Firefox & you post a lot of links on blogs like this one! See inside for more details.
