Does anyone have a greasmonkey script or know of a firefox addon that blocks website scripts which try and disable the ability to paste into forms.  I find it infuriorating that I might have to say fill out an address form but cant cut and paste the details because the website uses what I presume is some javascript to block.  Ive already made sure javascript cant replace context menu's.

Does the site require javascript to submit the form?  If not you can use noscript to block the entire offending script.  Typically there will be code somewhere in a .js file that's doing something with e.KeyCode

I use the Web Developer addon for Firefox which, amongst other things, allows you to easily turn Javascript on and off.

Using Javascript to try and stop your visitors from copying your content is pointless as you can turn Javascript off rendering it useless, or use screen capture software to photograph what you need on screen.

If you don't want it copied, don't publish it on the web.

Yep anyone wanting to take your javascript knows enough to know how to click view source or use something like wget to save the whole page.
