[thelist] Copy text with links in brackets

I need a way to copy text in web pages that include links so that the
links get transformed to actual destination urls when they are sent to
the clipboard.

Sample tools are Blogger [http://blogger.com], Yola [http://yola.com],
LiveJournal [http://livejournal.com]

So I can paste the text into a text-only note taking application.

Is there a Firefox plugin/addon that would do this? Its very tedious
to copy the text, then right click on links and choose copy link
location and then paste them individually next to the anchor text they
refer to.
