Cant paste into a forum, dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled
sorry for maybe bad english.
i found i cant paste stuff from the clipboard into the edit windows for a forum. Forum ist http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/
I can copy stuff, i can paste it anywhere else but not in the edit windows. The forum sems not to see there is anything in the clipboard. right-click context menue has no paste button. Bug seems only to happy with firefox. Check with IE, Edge.
"Fehlerbehebungsmodus" safe mode? dont fix it. The error seems new. im shure i uses copy /paste on that side at least last wednesday.
Google lead me to "dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled" false it works with that setting. question: can i leave it with that setting or have to expect trouble on other sides?
is this a know bug? any idea what happen here?

One common reason for problems with pasting into rich text editors is if you disable their ability to detect pastes in their scripts. Could you check this setting:
(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.
(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste CLIP and pause while the list is filtered
(3) If the dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled preference is bolded and "user set" to false, double-click it to restore the default value of true
If you changed that, does it help?
If that preference already had its default value, do you want to give an example of a site or two where pasting doesn't work?
Paste only works if dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled is set false. The Site is http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/forum/82-gameplay/
My questen is, can there be somne side effects with dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled false? Or may i just keep it?
answer my own question: yes it had side effects. Yes its broken
no need to hurry switched browser.
