    For some reason I can not use cut, copy, paste on Firefox. This has just started today, as I used it yesterday and it worked. I have rebooted, cleaned cache, and just don't know what else to do.

    Note: Cut, copy, paste does work on my old internet explorer browser.

    I really am technologically challenged and need very simple instructions, or I just can not figure it out.

    Can you help me?

    Thanks!

    if you're not using the latest version update it and see if that makes a difference, there was a bug that caused this problem in an early version.

    is it just a problem in firefox? if not might also be worth scanning for malware, that can interfere with the clipboard sometimes.

    Thank you. I did just install this a couple weeks ago, so I assume it is updated. I also just scanned for malware, and that hasn't helped. Hmmm, maybe I should uninstall it and try something else. [​IMG]

    yeah google chrome is good. if reinstalling doesn't change anything, which, if it's a new bug, likely won't, i'd recommend it.
