    how to enable copy and paste in firefox 18

    Apparently this isn't a new problem but its the first time I've run into it. Is there a particular way to enable copy and paste without an addon?

    thanks,

    Hello,

    First, when you highlight something, can you not right click it, or can you and the paste/copy part is just grayed out?

    Can you copy and paste things outside of Firefox? Try opening up LibreOffice or a text editor, make some text, copy and paste it. If it doesn't work, then it isn't Firefox that is the problem.

    Do you have any other add-ons enabled? If so, what and is one of them Stumble Upon? Also make sure you have Java installed and enabled.

    Running version 18 here:

    Code:
    andrew@skamandros~$ firefox --version
    Mozilla Firefox 18.0.1
    and no trouble with copying and pasting. Images, text etc all fine...
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Never heard of this problem before.
    Users can easily damage their systems by using sudo su if they aren't experienced enough.

    Perhaps this will deal with the problem:
