MultiCopy Adds Multiple Text Copying to Firefox

Firefox: MultiCopy is a simple Firefox add-on that allows you to copy multiple chunks of text sequentially, thanks to a now extended clipboard memory, and then paste that text in the order you copied it.

If you work within Firefox with text a lot it’s a big time time saver. You can easily toggle the feature on and off from the right context menu. To use the add-on you simply copy and paste within Firefox, no special menu or keyboard commands required. The biggest limitation is that it only works within Firefox (it doesn’t extend the system wide clipboard at all).

MultiCopy is free and works wherever Firefox does. Have a better clipboard manager either for Firefox or your greater OS of choice? Let’s hear about it in the comments.

    I’m a big fan of Clipboarder gadget for windows

    I use the “AddMoreTextToClipboard” Firefox addon. It allows additions in line, append with new line, and clear clipboard commands as well. It does need a version update to the install.rdf file to use it with 7.0.1. I’ve been using this addon since it came out, and it works great

    I have been looking for a program for Windows for years. Its quite similiar, except when right clicking on a file, it allows choosing copy1, copy2,paste1,paste2,cut1,cut2. Meaning I could copy one file from directory A, cut one from B and paste both of them (paste1, paste2) to directory C. Can anyone help me out with suggestions?

    I don’t know how any one can use Windows without Clipboard Recorder Pro.

    I’ve been using ‘Clipple’ for ages. You can store about 50 on the clipboard manager.

    I use “Sticky Notes” Accessory in Windows 7 and available on the web for my XP machine. Works great to cut and paste into, either one sticky or multiple stickies. Plus I get to see them and copy and paste in any order later. Just my opinion. Like anything, whatever fills your need and that you find comfortable to work with. Plus at least Sticky notes in Windows 7 are there even after a restart.
