Copy/Paste not working


#1

This is in reference and follow up to threads on previous board: https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/202192448-Copy-Paste-not-working and https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/239423168-Copy-and-paste-not-working-in-R-Studio-but-works-in-R.

CentOS 7.4
RStudio 1.1.442
FireFox 61.0.1

There was a workaround in a browser setting in FireFox but after a while, it reverted back to not being able to copy and paste. I was using a text editor as an intermediate step; not having copy and paste is a workflow efficiency killer.

Switched to Chrome 67.0.3 and copy and paste is working.

Would appreciate any input or feedback and even link to where in FireFox the setting is.

For the copy paste to work in Firefox, I need to activate an option about clipboard in the browser. You can go to config by going to about:config as url in Firefox. Then on mine I need to enable ....clipboardevents.enabled to true.

I think I need to do that after every update.

Hope it helps.
