does a firefox extension exist for this already?
a way to copy (to clipboard) a row or column of text from an html table?

right now, im copying the entire table, then having to manually go through and edit it to get the data i want - big pain.

try this:
ctrl+click on the first box (column), then ctrl+shift+click on the last box, then ctrl+c to copy.
If you find a good solution and become attached to it, the solution may become your next problem.

What is Table2Clipboard:
Mozilla applications allow to select rows and columns from a table
simply pressing Control key and picking rows/columns with left mouse button.

The selection can be copied to clipboard but the original table disposition is lost
making ugly results when you paste the text on datasheet applications (eg excel).

If you want to paste data in Microsoft Excel on OpenOffice Calc
with correct disposition simply use Table2Clipboard
