Description

It is not possible to paste text into text boxes. When I click on the text box, the tabs for pasting text disappear and I can only manually type in new text.

Does Ctrl-V work?

#2 Updated by Ralph Harbach 8 months ago

Control V works but I still do not have use of the buttons for pasting text. The buttons disappear the moment I click on the text box. The buttons only work if I click the button before clicking in the box, but this only allows text to be added to the end of existing text. It is not possible to paste text into existing text.

I checked this with Ralph, and we discovered that this is the result of a security feature in Firefox.
