SUMMARY: The AutoCopy plugin for Mozilla Firefox automatically places selected webpage text into the clipboard without you having to do anything.
Let's face it - most of the time when you select text inside a webpage viewed via Firefox, your next step is to copy it to the clipboard for pasting inside another web page, word processing document, e-mail message, etc.
If you copy a lot of text, why not skip the copy step? Automatically have Firefox place selected text in the clipboard without you having to do anything with the "AutoCopy" plugin.
As there are times you do not want the clipboard to be accidentally overwritten, a status bar icon is added to Firefox that, when clicked, temporarily disables AutoCopy. Right-clicking the icon and choosing "Options" lets you configure settings including blinking this icon whenever AutoCopy runs and configuring an alternate keyboard copying shortcut.
