    Default Copy & Paste

    Is it just me, or can you not paste anything in the body of an email in the web UI? I can copy fine, but have no option to paste. Thanks for the help & info.

    There is a pretty big/widely known bug with firefox where the clipboard doesn't work.

    Because it doesn't always happen, some have speculated that it's spyware or something.

    In any case, if you're using FF, it's likely that that's it.

    Default A possible workaround

    You might have some luck with the following edits to your FF's user.js conf file as found here: http://www.pbworks.net/?Useful_guide...ste_in_Firefox
    Please note that there seems to be word of a new issue with copy/paste in recent FF 1.5 releases and as such this method comes without warranty.

    The instructions for those who don't want to click through:

    1. install chromEdit extension and restart Firefox
    2. go to the Firefox' "Tools" menu > Edit User Files > cick on the "user.js" tab
    3. add the following lines in the "user.js" file:

    user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "allowclipboard");
    user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.sites" , "http://www.site1.com");
    user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.Clipbo ard.cutcopy", "allAccess");
    user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.Clipbo ard.paste", "allAccess");

    4. change "http://www.site1.com" with the website's url you want to grant access and restart Firefox

    If you need to grant copy/paste access to more than one website, then you may add the websites urls separated by a blank space, like this:

    user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.sites" , "http://www.site1.com http://www.site2.com");

    HTH.

    Check-out bug 9269 .. this may-not be anything to do with FF's issue.. since, we can paste anytext into To,Cc fields. Also, as long as you have html-compose set-by-default in options app, you should be able to paste in compose field too.

    The problem appears to surface when we use use 'Options' menu of mailCompose and then change the compose mode from PlainTxt->Html.

    What about users on IE? For example, I need to copy/paste from Paint quite often but can't seem to make it work on Zimbra...
