Pasting in Firefox is blocked by pop-up blocker.

I will have lost 50% of my users around here.

The rest will turn off pop up blocking on the specific site

That hardly gets better. Now I get a pop up window in Firefox asking me to paste in plain text.

Even when I have already selected some plain text this happens. It makes copy and paste very difficult and time consuming and plain right out annoying. Copy pasting is something you do all the time.

huh? I enabled this briefly to try it, but disabled it again. The TinyMCE config says "paste_use_dialog : false". Try a svn up.

-- TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie - 30 Aug 2007

No - It is still popping up on my SVN checkout as well as here on develop. Did you try yourself?

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 30 Aug 2007

Yes, and it is popping up all of a sudden :-/


-- TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie - 31 Aug 2007

The TinyMCE paste plugin has an undocumented feature; when paste_auto_convert_word_content is enabled, it automatically turns on paste_use_dialog, even if you have explicitly turned it off. So I added additional config for individual browser types. This depends on an analysis of the useragent string, which is notoriously difficult to get right, but by following the same algorithm as TinyMCE uses, at least it should be consistently wrong.
