PM Cannot Cut and Paste Content Other Browsers Can Do

Unread postby paddle59 » Tue, 16 Jun 2015, 21:27

PM does not let me copy eg. a link from a web page and paste it to the search bar.

eg. theres a link on a web page. I want to copy the text the link shows. I hi-lite the text of the link and cut and paste into the search bar (that's usually next to the location bar).

But if I try to paste it to a text editor it seems to work - a bit confused right now as a switch to PM Browser in my Win7 partition.

Copy/Paste works OK on Linux firefox but not PM as stated above. Also works (no copy/paste problems) in my PM in Win7.

What's up w/this? Can anyone recreate this?

Thanks

Version: 25.5.0 (x86)

Are you using the right way to copy and paste?
There are different:
  • Ctrl-Ins—Shift-Ins
  • Ctrl-C—Ctrl-V
  • rightclick-menu—something
Not all are available in every GUI and app.
