URL Link is a small Firefox and Thunderbird extension that allows you to select a non-URL in a mail/news message or web-page, and open it in a browser window.

For emails, it reconnects links in emails which have been broken across several lines, and also replaces spaces with the URL character code so that you may follow emailed network 'file:' links (which it auto-detects from Windows "X:" or servdir references).

For web pages, it also allows you to select textual links/URLs in web pages or edit boxes, and follow them as if they were real links.

URL Link will always let you follow links and also analyzes mailto: links.

URL Link has a preferences dialogue allowing customisation of the 'not a proper URL' sub-menu which converts, e.g., "sometext" to "www.sometext.com", so that locale-specific conversions can be added (like 'www.*.co.uk').
