You can file this one in the folder of annoying things you find on the Web. Not to slip into Andy Rooney here, but don’t you hate it when you find a super long link you’d like to visit but it is not hyperlinked? You have to copy, paste, open a new tab and then navigate to it. It should be a simpler task to tackle and thankfully the Copy and Go extension for Firefox makes it an easy thing to do.
Here is what the developer of the extension has to say about Copy and Go:
With this add-on you just need to mark the link, and choose Copy and Go from the right click menu. The add-on will simply copy the marked text URL, and will open it on a new tab. That’s it!
This makes for a great addition to any Firefox installation you might have. You can pick up Copy and Go on the Firefox Add-ons site.
