Updated firefox on win10 and experimenting ... text from the forums doesn't paste but if you switch to Source and paste there it works.

So it does.... hopefully thats a temporary workaround <g>

Me again! Gunter hit on a workaround - you can copy as usual and then paste AFTER click the Source button on the editor after you Paste then click on Source again to return to your usual posting window.

So strange ... don't see any coding or html in Source that may cause this.

Gunter, this is happening for me too.  This is the message I get:

I could copy and paste just fine yesterday, then suddenly it stopped working.

I'll look through this thread to see if there is a solution.

Relieved to see it's not just me.

I googled the living daylights out of the problem.  No real solutions out there.

Sorry no immediate fix other than switching to Source html to paste ... or using another browser. I've added you to the report.

It's a Firefox problem. Do the following to copy and paste:
1. Select the passage you wish to copy
2. Do Command/C
3. Click the "Paste" icon at the upper left in the editor.
4. Follow the resulting instruction.
