Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:23.0) Gecko/20130521 Firefox/23.0 (Nightly/Aurora)
Build ID: 20130521004018

Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to www.wired.com
2. Touch-and-hold on a link, intending to copy the text of the link


Actual results:

Link option box appears but no option to "Copy Link Text" is available


Expected results:

An option to "Copy Link Text" should be present to allow me to copy the text of the link
An add-on can fulfill this request but this is more than likely not something UX would want in the product.

Not sure I understand the issue here - how is this different from "Copy Link" which we already have?

<a href="http://mozilla.com">Mozilla</a> - Copy Link Text would copy "Mozilla", Copy Link would copy the URL.
Thanks Aaron.

Sadly, context menu space is already in short supply, and I can't see this feature being very useful for a more general audience. As mentioned in comment 1 this would probably be more appropriate as an add-on.
