• Hi - if you have tried to donate and found that it hasn't worked please can you hit me up in PM? (Freya) I am trying to figure out with paypal what the issue is and they are asking for more data. It doesn't seem to be affecting everyone. Thank you so much :)

Copying text eats it...

Gah it happened again and now I need to retype everything (it will make sense soon).

I'm using Firefox on Win7 in private mode. Try this:

1) Open a thread or start a new one
2) Type something into the quick reply/new post area
3) Select all - Ctrl+A
4) Copy - Ctrl+C

The result - the entire text disappears. It's NOT copied into the clipboard, it can't be pasted nor can the action be reversed (Ctrl+Z).

If you're asking why I would do that, It's a reflex I've developed for the case the web site bugs out during posting. Which is, BTW, the case of SF as well, because the server times out so often. Well my protection against such problems just causes me to lose my text in the first place. Ironic.

Note if I select the text and copy using the context menu, it doesn't happen. Neither if only a portion of the text is selected.

Any clue what's going on?

You might need to type some longer text. The issue might be triggered only after draft is auto-saved but I'm not sure.

I don't have server issues here and am not sure how to solve this. Perhaps someone will come along with an idea. Seems like a lot to go through to save text *dunno

Test your keyboard if key C sometimes doesn't work or has been assigned some other function by a program or virus ?

Well, I've heard everything, but blaming it on the keyboard...

But no, it works just fine in literally every other program, web site, forum and text entry field except on this page. I mean, you get that it's not about Ctrl+C not working - it does 'work', it just does something else than it should.

Like I dunno maybe it's a specific thing triggered by the FF/Private mode/W7 combination or like I said maybe by the editor saving. Try typing a long text, waiting a while for the editor to save and then copy.

Also what's up with Ctrl+Z not working? That's also specific for this forum from what I can tell.

..works for me and agreeing to what you said it could be Firefox or Private mode. Why don't you try to rule them out first by testing in normal mode and trying on browser other than firefox

Sorry you're having issues. They don't seem to be related to the forum specifically though. Seems to be an end user problem.

Frankly I can't be bothered. If nobody else is having the problem, due to everyone being on W10 or Mac and using the spywareo-o-tron Chrome, I'll just let it be. I just found it to be amusing, even though frustrating sometimes. Not the end of the world tho.

Yea just that you know, I'd worked as web apps QA and tech support for 10 years and this is not what you call an end user problem (unless you just mean that the end user has a problem with your service), not before you rule out other possibilities. Even though that's what the mindset of big corps always teaches us ("Can't reach this one specific web site. The problem must be your internet.").

But like I said I can't be bothered by this sooo okay.
