This is a very simple trick and most of you know about it already. For those who don't, its a real pain to see Firefox browser downloading any file to your desktop by default.

Suppose you want to copy and paste texts from a web page. Though the data can easily be copied (unless that particular website has copy protection) as plain text and pasted to yours, its painful to take all the metadata alongside it. Suppose you want to copy a part where someone has a quote and an embedded link too. What you will have to do is, copy the text then use quote button for that quote part, use link button to link to the proper address and etc. While all these things can seem rather tedious, Mozilla add-on QuoteURLText can do it for you.
Mozilla Firefox needs no special mention to anyone who is associated with internet. Perhaps the fastest and most reliable browser in this world is the most popular one too as they achieved the Guiness Book of World Records for most download in a single day. The key to their success has been continuous improvement of the browser and large committed group of high-quality developers, which Mozilla Foundation could cheaply leverage due to the open source nature of the product. Mozilla Foundation surely do not believe in resting on their laurels. Mozilla Firefox 4 suits the idiom perfectly as it is coming up with some features we could have never imagined in a browser. So let us sneak into that world.
