This only occurs on one of my banking sites (URL specified above) Good Luck, Thanks, John Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. goto https://www1.royalbank.com/cgi-bin/rbaccess/rbunxcgi?F6=1&F7=IB&F21=IB&F22=IB&REQUEST=ClientSignin&LANGUAGE=ENGLISH 2. attempt to paste any number into the account number field 3. No paste occurs. Actual Results: Nothing Expected Results: incerted the copied number.
Pasting works fine using the menuitem. It doesn't work with Control-C, however (it would have been nice to clearly say how you were pasting). The reason Control-C does not work is that the web site explicitly cancels most keypress events for that text input (note that Control-X doesn't work to cut, you can't type letters in the textbox, and so forth). Over to evangelism; Mozilla is doing exactly what it should be given the JS on that site.
Using CTRL-V for paste works in all cases when using IE. If Firefox is to take the world, It will have to do all and then better it! Thanks for your input. John
> Using CTRL-V for paste works in all cases when using IE. Two things: 1) The page runs very different JS in Firefox and IE. I didn't bother digging into the exact differences in their event processing code for the two. 2) Given the code that _is_ run in Firefox, its behavior is correct. If the IE code is equivalent and IE does something different, that's a bug in IE. "Taking the world" shouldn't mean creating an identical clone of IE, including all possible bugs.
Works for me - SeaMonkey 1.1.9 (linux).
