RapidCopy is a free Firefox add-on that helps to auto copy text to clipboard. That means, whenever some text will be selected by you while using Firefox browser, it will be copied instantly to clipboard. Without using Ctrl+C hotkey or right-click context menu, required selected text will be copied automatically. This extension also works for selected hypertext or a link, but only plain text (not URL) will be copied to clipboard.
This add-on is handy when you have to collect information from a webpage by copying the text content multiple times. You can also enable/disable this Firefox add-on in just two mouse-clicks.
In above screenshot, you could see options provided by this add-on.
Note: Undo copying option is available to restore last action. Use of this option is to undo whatever copied and restore item that was copied before the last copied item. But this option is not useful because Windows clipboard stores only one entry. So even if you will undo copying, by default last copied item will remain stored.
We have also covered a similar Firefox extension known as Quick Copy 2.
