When pasting links into other programs, Firefox currently just serves up the raw URL. It would be nice if links could be copied and pasted more like Edge does, inserting a more readable hyperlink to the page in question.
For instance, the link to https://connect.mozilla.org is rendered as Home - Mozilla Connect when copied and pasted from Edge into other applications.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.

When you mark (aka. highlight) the link text then use `CTRL+C` you can then use CTRL+V to insert the link in the format as you want. At least if you paste into applications which support it.
Hope this info helps.
To clarify, I mean in particular when you copy and paste URLs from the address bar (your point does work for links in webpages though)

Oh, ... then you might like this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/copy-tabs/
Note: To enable the plaintext fallback when copying as links set the "dom.events.asyncClipboard.clipboardItem" in `about:config` to `true`
Hope it helps.
