Using Firefox plug-ins I had a plug-in called Copy Plain Text v0.3.3 that stopped working with newer versions of Firefox several releases ago.

Does anyone have a replacement for this that works with the latest Firefox v10?

The plug-in adds a context sensitive menu to allow copying text from a web page with out any formatting, i.e. as plain text. When I copy from a web page, I almost always just want the text and not any formatting, so this plug-in was a real big help. Now I must paste into something like the search bar and copy a second time to strip the text of any formatting.


In the current Mozilla plugin repository, there are several similar options that work with FireFox 10.x:
