      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

You can't hijack Mozilla. However, if this is an old version, you'd be able to see .xpis from known CWS manufacturers pop up. Go to about:config and turn XPI.Install off to stop these.


Mozilla is immune to hijackers. It is that simple.
