Hi, not sure if this is in the right section, but i couldn't find anywhere it fits or what exactly the problem is.

I have been trying to copy text from the web, by highlighting it, and right clicking and selecting copy. The problem is that there is no copy option. I try using Ctrl-C, but to no affect. This has been happening a lot lately, randomly, and never used to happen. So i doubt it is about the text being copy protected, and i am not sure all of the stuff i am trying to copy is. The biggest problem is when trying to copy web URL's, as i have to type the whole thing out.

I am using Firefox 3.5.5 on Windows 7 Home Premium

Does it happen in IE?

Have you removed all addons and started with a fresh install of FF?
