Titles Extension

This is the homepage for my Titles Extension, which is a Web Extension for browsers and is available from Mozilla Add-Ons at Titles Extension for Mozilla Firefox and Titles Extension - Microsoft Edge Addons for Microsoft Edge. If you want to see the source code, then hop over to GitHub - glawrence/titles-extension and see what you think. You can also get the source code from Mozilla Add-Ons but most developers will find GitHub easier to work with.


The easy way to install the Titles Extension is to go to the Mozilla Add-Ons website or Microsoft Edge Store and search, or use the links above. However, you can also search via the Add-Ons button off the standard Firefox menu or the Extensions page in Edge.
If you want the button to be easily visible then click the Firefox Menu and select customise, from where you can drag the button to the main toolbar across the top of Firefox or you can add it to the menu.


Once you have the button installed, you simply browse to the website you want and click the button. A dialog will appear, looking similar to the image below.

Relative Path with No Target

At this stage you can adjust the Title or URL and see the result in the preview box. You can also change the target if necessary. When you press the OK button the contents of the preview is copied as plain text to the clipboard.

Privacy Policy

The Titles Extension requests three permissions as follows:

  • activeTab - for access to the currently active tab, to get the page Title & URL
  • clipboardWrite - to put the output into the system clipboard
  • tabs - to access the URLs of all the tabs

The only data read from web pages is the Title and the URL and the only place this is "sent" is the clipboard. At no point is any data sent to any other device or even stored or logged on the device running the browser. If you have any concerns then please check the source code and if necessary log an issue on GitHub or contact me.

No personal information is accessed, collected or transmitted, other than as described above.

Whilst the Titles Extension is good at getting all the tab URLs from your browser, you might want to open those URLs in another browser, possibly on another machine. In which case, I would recommend Open Multiple Addresses which I have found to be very useful. It is basic, simple and does the job, and the code is at wagnerand/open-multiple-addresses: A webextension that opens multiple addresses at once if you are interested.
