You have to use the edit menu on firefox, at the top of the screen. 

I hate that too and it is only that way with Cafemom.  I have no idea why but I copy and paste on other sites all the time.  Hope this helps.

I don't know if this will help you, but I have noticed that I can't just right-click and copy or paste. I have to highlight what I want to copy and press ctl.-C to copy and then what I want to paste it I have to press ctl.-V.

This is what i did.....when you try and it pops up that stupid little window saying you cant get a peice of paper and pen and write down the instructions cuz you can have firefow open to do it and you have to do something on your computer to change it. It drove me crazy too

What you're experiencing is infection related.

I suggest joining Computer Moms - Computer Heaven group here on CafeMom.


I can help you out with clean up of your computer, and suggest a regimen of maintenance for the future.

i'm having issues too! i JUST posted something about this in another group and reported to CM. my problem is a lil different though. i can't upload in safari or edit text. i CAN in firefox but now firefox wont let me log in! it says that i'm not a registered user. which obviously i am because i'm logged in using safari! EDIT- i use a mac and mine isn't infection related because my last mac did this... plus macs dont get viruses

Macs do get infections.

In fact, MAC recently sent out a major bulletin netwide telling users to get software to protect themselves from malicious codes/virus/spyware/infections. After years of seeminly poking fun at Microsoft's use of protection tools for Windows.

It's not that MAC is not vulnerable to infections...they are only 'less' likely because bad guys usually target the most used of the items they wish to infect havoc upon. (Windows, IE...etc.)

These platforms are more used therefore they are more likely to be targeted.


"It's not that Mac OS X is inherently more secure against viruses than current versions of Windows (although it was clearly more secure than Windows prior to XP SP2); the numerous vulnerabilities reported and patched in recent years are just as exploitable as their Windows equivalents. But most security experts agree that malicious software these days is driven by financial incentives, and it's far more profitable to target the most dominant platform."
