Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

What I want to do is from Firefox drag the desired link to a gedit window and let the URL be pasted instead of downloading a source code (as now gedit does).

Actually I'd appreciate any faster way to copy URL than from a browser than right click on a link -> copy option -> change window to gedit -> ctrl + V. That is a lot of work when repeated. A simple drag would be great.

I have sadly failed to find an answer in Google or in gedit plugins.
