Hi,

I cannot copy text from aliexpress.com. I can do that on IE and Chrome. Why is that?

Best regards

(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 CLIPB and pause while the list is filtered

(3) If the dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled preference is bolded and "modified" or "user set" to false, double-click it to restore the default value of true

I can copy the product description text without problems.

The text you see under a product is part of the image as you can see if you right-click.

I just tried it in Edge and here's the result :

Never had this problem in Firefox before and can't explain it ......

Let's wait for someone with better working braincells to come to the rescue here.

What context menu do you g if you try to select some text and right-click?

It is possible that you do not get the highlight color, but that the text is selected in case you haven't tried this.

None, I am going to reinstall

You can create a new profile to test if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.

Hi Cor-el..

A strange thing: I reinstalled Firefox > with removing every Firefox folder from %appdata% folder and Program folders.... After reinstalling I could select text in order list and copy etc.

When I open the order itself I could select the text anymore. Very strange.

So it is partly solved.. I remember getting a popup with a question when I put in text in search: Do you want to sent insecure data..... etc.... Ring any bells?

BTW on my other virtuel machine I can select in both ways

Greetzzz

Uh... My bad... Text part should be "When I open the order itself I couldN'T select the text anymore."
