Ironic. There are four people in this thread alone that I would have hooked up if I could.
Context menu copy/paste in the postbox is not something that can be fixed.
I beg to differ. I understand how FF handles this. Frankly, I never thought this was enough of a problem to warrant this iron glove solution. It's just throwing the baby out with the bathwater, IMO. In any case, there is evidently something that can be done, and I can prove it.
A couple of weeks ago, late at night, The forums were acting strangely. Lots of the 'code pigeons' dialogues. This may indicate that there is work being done on the site(s), and I'll often check functionalities. C&P is at the top of my list of forum annoyances, so I went there first.
I chose a long quote, and one where all of the font paramaters were different: larger size, different font, different color. I chose to pull it from another website, rather than from my own files, and gave it a whirl. It worked like a charm. Here is the link to that very post. http://forums.demigodthegame.com/343005 Note that I did this with the mouse, not the keyboard. Note also that I still can't insert it as a hyperlink, as the buttons remain greyed-out.
Something was done that allowed me to C&P that quote, and that something could be done again.
@Kryo- Thanks for letting us know that the keyboard shortcuts still work. I always just assumed they were non-functional as well. +1 Karma for you...oh, yeah. Still doesn't work. Oh well, here's one of these. You might suggest to Stardock that they edit the error dialogue to reflect this. It might save a bit of grief for the next Joe.
