This request came up in my TODO list recently, and I had a think about it. My first thought was that it doesn't seem productive. Most users will simply copy link from browser url, which is already quick and easy with [select + cmd-c]. I don't think it is reasonable to expect that visitors will look for a "copy link" feature in a website-specific toolbar when the visitor already has an existing behavior for this. All in all, it doesn't seem like a worthwhile X3 feature, but I decided to add it as a non-default option in release X3.25.0:

Toolbar clipboard button

Simply add the following item to Settings > Toolbar > Items:
Code
{
  "id": "clipboard",
  "icon": "clipboard",
  "label": "Copy link"
}
You can change icon and label, but id must be "clipboard".
