Why can't I paste into youtube comments on firefox

已張貼

I don't know when this happened, but today I noticed that I cannot paste text into youtube comments on firefox. It still works just fine on Chrome. I tried to use an addon to copy plain text only, but that didn't help, nor have I ever needed it before.

Is this google's latest monopoly trick or something, or what is going on?

被選擇的解決方法

"I have a fix. go to your address bar and type "about:config" no quotes, and then hit the "i'll be careful, I promise" button, next type "dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled" then double click it, so the value is false. And that should do the trick." - pcdude234 (tomshardware)

Worked :P


(added by moderator)
Warning! Setting the preference dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled to false in the Firefox Configuration Editor (about:config page) can cause problems pasting on other sites, such as strange glitches with the Facebook comment box or frustrating silent failures.

Thank you for the answer but the question still remains: a month ago I had no problem. 4 years ago when I started using Firefox I had no problem.

Now suddenly without any explanation, this quirky problem shows up. I really would like to know why? Why only on selective sites? Why Firefox but not Chrome? To me the answer as to "why" is just as (or more) important than how to fix it.

Would would a 3rd party script be needed?

What is the 3rd party script doing to fix it?

What are these websites doing that causes the problem in the first place?

Thanks

Hi matt621, why does YouTube intercept the paste command, and why does the code it runs upon interception prevent the paste from happening in Firefox 40-41?

I can't answer these questions. Google's scripts tend to be very complex and I couldn't follow what they do. I also don't know how much Google cares about its sites working in Firefox.

The Greasemonkey user script works by blocking Google's scripts from detecting that there was a paste so that it cannot be intercepted.

Thank you. That helps me understand the issue much better. I ran into this on a .gov website as well. And of course Facebook. So it looks like they may be trying to stop spamming, okay, but then why do they exclude Chrome? They think spammers don't use Chrome? ;-) <sarcasm>

Which makes me wonder more. But I do say thank you for the reply. That answers my question!

my easy guess is they want to stop link pasting. Youtube comments were recently disconnected from Google+, which DID allow link pasting.

Perhaps they only want chrome users to be able to do this, to further its race against FF.

Either way, Google is constantly changing things, making it a moving target and hard to keep up with.

Yes this worked great for me also. I just suddenly couldn't paste to youtube one day a couple months ago, probably some ffox update did it.

This is one thing I sure like with ffox over chrome. I had to switch due to chrome maxing my cpu in a minute or two (on more than one pc) and could get no help from anyone. The forums/community there is just a place for us to all bitch. You get near zero help from google, yet I have found solutions or got personal help here every time I have had problems. Firefox works great for me. Thanks.

Hi helpful55, if you discover sites where paste suddenly does nothing or causes strange effects, you may need to switch this setting back to the default and try the userscript approach instead. (This has been observed on Facebook, pasting into comments.) For that see: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1080597#answer-783815

I looked at the userscript. I am not familiar with Grease Monkey.

Do these 2 commented lines in the script limit the script to only effect YouTube?

If you don't want to install Greasemonkey, you can make a simple toggle for this (and any other) about:config value with the PrefBar extension. Paste the following into a text file, give it a .btn extension and import into PrefBar (right click on the customise window and select import).

{

 "prefbar:info": {
   "formatversion": 3
 },
 "prefbar:menu:enabled": {
   "items": [
     "prefbar:button:clipevents"
   ]

 }

Hi SafeReader, I don't know whether anyone has dug into Google's scripts deeply enough to identify what would need to be changed in Firefox. Even if someone does that, depending on the complexity of the changes, it may take a couple versions to get it released. I suggest using a workaround for now.

I want to report that I've had the same problem of not being able to paste anything into YouTube comments.

At first, the fix of setting "dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled" to false worked, but since then, the problem seems to happen on and off randomly.

I am also having similar problems in Facebook. (I have reported this on another thread.) When I paste text into Facebook comments, the comments box becomes really glitchy and the text cannot be edited.

Until this moment in Firefox you can use only the temporary method mentioned in this video https://youtu.be/gskZZLjGM6I The fix of setting "dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled" fix ONLY the youtube problem but create problems to Facebook. So reset it to default to work ok your Facebook.

Hi MartyJames, another workaround is to use an add-on. Specifically, a user script that blocks YouTube's paste interception script. This involves a combination of two installs:

(1) The Greasemonkey extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/

(2) This userscript: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/12433-fix-paste-on-youtube
