After updating Firefox 19.0.2 to my iMac Desktop 10.8.2, Lion, I can no longer drag or cut and paste anything to anywhere, anymore. Please help. Thanks!
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
Thank you kindly for your assistance. Unfortunately, restarting Firefox in Safe Mode did not solve the issue. Please let me know what else I can do. Thanks bunches!
Does this also happen if you try to copy/cut and paste text in a text area like "Post a Reply" on this forum?
Try to reinstall Firefox.
Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the disk image (dmg) file to the desktop
Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data if you uninstall and (re)install Firefox.
Happily, I was able to copy and paste the above Mozilla web address into this box. What I cannot do is copy and paste into Twitter reply boxes. I wrote Twitter about this. They sent me to you instead.
Do I still need to reinstall Firefox?
Try to use the keyboard shortcuts if the buttons on the web page or other methods aren't working.
Hmm. Sadly, it didn't work. I've gone back to the Twitter folks and asked them about this again. I will let you know what they say. I really appreciate your help. Thank you again!
Is that a plain text area like on this forum or a rich text area that also accepts HTML code?
Yes, that sounds reasonable.
