Do you often copy and paste URLs from the Firefox address bar? If you do, then don’t you think it’s a hassle to long-press on the URL bar first before you can copy and paste the URL to another tab? How about when pasting a URL to Firefox from another browser or app? The same process applies and you even need to delete the existing URL in the tab.
Isn’t there any simpler and quicker way to do so? Actually, there is. With the “Copy Paste Location” add-on for Firefox in Android, you’ll be able to add a Copy/Paste button to the address bar. With the Copy/Paste button, you can easily copy and paste URLs in Firefox in just one tap!

How to copy a URL
- Load the tab or page first and when you see the URL, simply tap the Copy/Paste button on the URL bar. That’s it. The URL will be automatically copied to your clipboard.
Pasting a URL
- First, copy a URL from Firefox or from another app. Once it’s been successfully copied to clipboard, select an existing tab from Firefox or open a new tab. On the URL bar, tap the small arrow next to the Copy/Paste button and then select “Paste and Go” or “Paste In New Tab”.
It’s as simple as that.
