Fixes & Solutions / Internet

Why can’t I paste into youtube comments on firefox?

Solution:

go to your address bar and type “about:config” (or copy and paste the text without the quotes)
then press the “I’ll be careful, I promise” button
next type “dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled”  (or copy and paste the text without the quotes)
then double click it so the value is false.

Now try to paste in Youtube, you don’t need to close the page or reload/restart Firefox, it should be instant.

Please let me know below if it worked for you 🙂

I started on computers back in the days of the Sinclair ZX81 and Spectrum, back when people were coming to terms with how great their new digital watch was. Even though I worked in DIY Shops, Fancy Goods, the building trade, DJ’ing etc, my main interest and passion was always in coding, graphics and games. I decided to take the plunge into computer shops in the mid 90’s and in 2003 set up my own computer business.
I have a simple work ethic which is I prefer to make a little money often, rather than charging a fortune and losing customers. This has proven to work for me and my customers. In all the years I have traded I have never advertised and yet each week, I get new customers through recommendations – there is no higher praise :)

What are your thoughts?
