Re: Can't copy paste into or save any edits to my post

I brought up the same thing in the Standard Editor Thread: https://forum.dvdtalk.com/forum-feed...l#post13644054

My dialogue with IBJoel begins in about post #16.

Short answer: It's the spoiler/content in that post. Something with a recent update has thrown things off. You can't use the old spoiler tags anymore [ spoiler ]...rather, you can, but you won't be able to edit afterwards. Instead, use the new spoiler tag.

Ah, but I can't edit away the old spoiler tags, they don't show up when I click SOURCE

I can't recall exactly how I did it or I'd explain it to you. But it took a few minutes of playing around with my old post before I managed to delete the old spoiler and re-created it with the new tag.

Haven't been able to copy paste in this forum from Firefox on Mac in the past week or so. Anyone can help on this issue?

Have you tested on other browsers?

Yes, and it's only giving me issues on the latest Firefox.

Try bypassing your cache and see if that works. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipe...ass_your_cache

If not, does it still prevent you from copy/pasting in Private FireFox browsing?

It now allows me to copy paste but only from where the cursor is blinking. If I try to right click copy/paste anywhere else on the reply area it won't let me do it.

This definitely sounds like a browser issue, since we didn't change anything. Is anyone else experiencing this?
