I use FF at planets.nu ... with version 36.x I was able to select text from a message pane on this site.

After updating to 37.0.1, FF don't hightlight text within the message pane. I cannot copy 'n paste the text into clipboard.

I read a lot about old "copy 'n paste errors" in former FF versions. I checked the mentioned settings under about:config ... change nothing there. Everything was fine.

I checked also, if other browsers are not able to copy n' paste the message content. No problems there.

I checked the CSS settings for the HTML structure ... no settings found that prevent copy 'n paste.

No idea whats going wrong or where to start the search for a solution.

Some web sites / pages send a signal to not allow right click.

Run your mouse over the page. Does the cursor change shape when running over test / blank area? Does it not change at all?
