How do you paste and match style in Firefox?

Posted

I do a lot of blogging and noticed that there is no "Paste and Match Style" function under the "Edit" tab. I really need that and am hoping you know of a workaround. Thanks.

Could you try "Paste as Plain Text"? Then Firefox should only insert the characters and not any formatting from the source. The keyboard shortcut is:

Command+Shift+v

instead of Command+v. I don't think that is on the menu anywhere.

Does that work?

YES! That worked. Thanks so much. Weird there's no option in the drop-down menu for this...
