I went to http://twitter.com/ after pasting in your link www.twitter.com if you are referring to the links at the bottom, right-click on the link and choose "Copy link location" then paste where you want it with "Ctrl+V".

If you can't copy from a site in your normal manner, try

  1. Edit > Copy of a selection
  2. "Ctrl+C" keyboard shortcut
  3. turning off JavaScript to block their blocking using JavaScript Tools > Options > JavaScript, or under "Advanced" there un-check Allow Scripts to: Disable context or replace context menus.
  4. Turn off CSS style formatting View > Page Style > No Style (don't forget to turn back on)

Real example of where to find what you are talking about -- the url and the what to look for -- that does not require any log-in would make for a better question.


You can copy multiple selections at the same time from most web pages. You can not copy multiple selections encompassing multiple frames or complicated divided areas. Try to include a space at beginning/end of areas that you copy to make your editing afterwards easier.

hi, i tried it that way and it works, but i still want to copy the entire twit, including the url and that way makes me waist time and is a bit uncomfortable...

for example, i want to copy this: Can you name this ruins?? http://pic.twitter.com/BzmjnEST

but instead i get this: Can you name this ruins??

here is the url of this twit: http://twitter.com/#!/zcolonial/status/136443297790038016

i just want to know if maybe this is something i can deactivate in the options or maybe if is an error of the system that can be solved by uninstalling and installing again.

thanks.
