Paste Quote is a Firefox Add-on that is designed for old phpBB / vBulletin style web forums, to help to quote individual sentences a little bit faster.

When you paste using Paste Quote, it simply surrounds the text you're pasting with [quote] and [/quote]; the BBCode markup for a block quote.

This Add-on has largely been superceded by technologies moving towards Markdown but I maintain it for the people out there that still have a use for it.

How does it work?

Just install it and restart Firefox. You will get a new right click menu option to Paste Quote whenever you right click inside a text field and have previously copied some text.
