If you are reading a PDF, DOC, PS, PPT or an XLS document in your Firefox browser and want to instantly add it to your catalog add this javascript code

javascript: var array = document.URL.match(/amazon\.(.*?)\/.*?\/.*?\/(.{10})/); var str ='_add_item.php?'; if (array == null) { str += 'url_path=' + escape(document.URL); } else { str += 'asin='+ array[2] + '&ext=' + array[1]; } str=escape(str); str = '' + str; var x =, '_blank'); x.focus();
