      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.

More and more evidence to start using mozilla, opera etc. As said in other posts, a fully patched IE is not going to help you.

I absolutely agree... IE has become very insecure nowadays, it is better to avoid it. Plus count all your EI patches and calculate how much disk space they have taken up...



I have calculated that various IE and Windows patches make approx. 10 MB in some three months. If not more...


Opera is for example around 17 MB. So why wasting your bandwidth? :scratchhead:
