As the second choice you mentioned putting the links into a text file. That method allows you to create documentation for research, and to email the links with titles, and descriptions (or other meta data), creating your own choices of what you want to copy and how you want it formatted. You can use Multiple Tab Handler (Firefox addon). I will just show what I use for copying into email, as I think creating an unordered list of links with buried urls in hypertext would not show up well here. The first two pages did not have descriptions, so I threw in one of my own. If emailing I might manually boldface the titles, and remove the "::" when there is no description. (*) links are messed up because of posting requirements limiting to two links, remove the extraneous asterisks.
Is there a method to export the URLs of the open tabs of a Firefox window? - Super User
