Is there an add on for quickly sending links to other firefox users?

I email them now, but it's really annoying. I often browse with people (friends and family) and send them links to solve their tech problems because they're lousy at searching.

I want a one click solution, with my link quickly popping up on my friends firefox window/bar/or wherever. I keep finding email to add ons, but I want something more. I would use Pocket (read it later) which has a sidebar that pops up and share my account, but I have personal things saved on it.

Any other non-firefox solutions are also welcomed, but I prefer firefox. Thanks, and sorry if this isn't really the place to ask this and it's more for problems/errors.

Thank you, but no, it's not what I'm looking for. The person receiving the link still has to go, open their email, etc. Cuts out my side of the steps but not their's.

That's really the only thing you can do. It's not that much work to open an email up and click a link. Or just open up facebook or some IM client and message them the link. You can't just have things magically appear on someone's PC.

It's not that much work if you only do it once a day. An IM client was my last resort. I find they're bulky and slow my PC.

And yes you can, as I said, Pocket would be the answer, you sync and the link is there, were I not already using it with an account. I'm going to have a look at similar services.
