    Export pdf files to word files ==> copy url, links to other word file. Save him to html and import to Firefox.

    almost

    if your pdfs are copy protected, you need to start with step 1, if they're free to copy, you can start with step 2

    step 1: convert your pdfs into word .doc: use Adobe Acrobat Pro or an online pdf to word converter:
    Code:
    http://www.pdfonline.com/pdf2word/index.asp
    step 2: copy-paste the whole document into the input window here, you can also download the lightweight html tool:
    Code:
    http://www.surf7.net/services/value-added-services/free-web-tools/email-extractor-lite/
    select 'url' as 'Type of address to extract', select your separator, hit extract and that's it

    Thank you bro. But which means there's no software we can extract URLs from pdf files?
    I have more then 100 pdf files and I think there will be more than 100 URLs per file....

    i haven't seen any yet, but it doesn't mean there isn't any, because i haven't searched for any

    and i forgot to mention that you cannot convert every type of protected pdfs to word with that tool above or with any other which is capable to do that
    (you can protect a pdf different kind of ways/on different levels)

    I know of one. It's originally a tool designed for penetration testing, but it'll do what you want. It should be on one of DefCon's pages.
    Google for "FOCA" it's made by some Spanish guys. Hope that helps
