This tutorial explains how to convert hyperlink into plain text in Firefox.

Link Stun is a handy Firefox add-on that let you convert any clickable URL into a plain text so that you can copy a particular word available in that URL. Normally, you can’t select a word in a cliclable text. In that case, you need to select the whole text, copy and paste it into a text editor, and then get the required word. This takes multiple steps and is time-consuming as well. This add-on makes it easy for you to grab a word from a hyperlink easily, without even leaving the active web page.

You can turn multiple web links into plain text one by one and can copy a particular word or search for that word online. Just two clicks are needed and a hyperlink of any web page can be converted into a normal text using this add-on.
