I was in a chat box with SKYPE and I clicked on the link to copy the text but it came back with "can't copy because not permitted in your browser"

I can highlight copy and paste from other web screens with no problem.

The chat window however doesn't give access to the lines that have scrolled past the window so highlighting the text won't work. Other chat windows grab the entire text when the user clicks on the copy link or icon.

I just installed firefox and haven't tried other chat windows to see if the problem could be repeated.

Use the keyboard if the buttons on the web page aren't working.

  • Copy: Ctrl+C or Ctrl+Insert
  • Paste: Ctrl+V or Shift+Insert
  • Cut: Ctrl+X or Shift+Delete
