Clipboard Observer Ver.2.0.2013052901 for Mozilla Firefox

What's this? ...abstract

This can load URI texts copied into the clipboard automatically. (You should not use this together with another application which observes the clipboard. This combination may cause troubles.)

And, when you open new tab, you can load the URI in the clipboard into the new tab instead of the default one.
