I get an messages staing that my browser won't allow me to paste from my clipboard. I'm able to use this function in other application, Firefox seems to be my only issue. Can you instruct me how to allow the "paste" feature.

Firefox only allows clipboard access if it is user initiated, so maybe the website isn't compatible with Firefox. You should be able to use the keyboard to paste (Ctrl+V).
