    Something odd I've noticed, when I try to paste something in the reply box another box pops up and I get this msg:

    Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window.
    Please paste inside the following box using the keyboard (Ctrl/Cmd+V) and hit OK​






    I'm using FireFox, any idea what I need to change to stop the box appearing? It's annoying and takes time to load while it's thinking about it and I have to paste everything twice.

    Any help appreciated.

    Either inter your text in the box provided when you try to paste or simply use the Ctrl/Cmd+V paste. It only happens to me in the Reply box. Plus, you can look at this https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/welcome-to-byc
    it is about the new BYC.

    On Firefox you can change your preference to "allow clipboard." I think there may be an "add on" available, too, but not sure on that. Here are instructions on how to change your preferences:

    Personally I think Firefox is a huge pain in the neck...

    Oh I love Fire Fox! :D

    Thankies for the help all. For some reason when I switched to BBCode so I could use the browser spell check it solved the paste problem too. I don't understand but it's all good! :lol:
