Firefox & IE - Copy Context Menu Plugin
I have created a set of browser plugins that are pretty helpful for developers and I thought that I should share them. I have created basically the same plugin for both IE and Firefox. What it does is add a "Copy As Html" and "Copy As Plain Text" to the context (right-click) menu. It is useful if you want to copy the text or underlying html from a web page into word, outlook or visual studio. Below is a setup file that sort of automates the installation. It will install the IE plugin completely and it will copy the file for the Firefox plugin. You will have to manually open the firefox plugin using firefox and choose "Install" to complete the firefox plugin installation. The plug-in should be installed here: "C:\Program Files\Fillmore Technology Group\Utilities\Firefox\copyMenu_- 1.3.0-fx.xpi", but the actual location will be on the bottom of the last form in the setup wizard. Since there are plenty of resources on the web that explain how to program these, I am not going to go into any detail on how it was accomplished. I will say that the end result was pretty simple to do, but finding all the information took a little time.

Update: The Firefox plugin can be installed from the Firefox Add-on site (It now works with 3.6): https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/4554
