Copy to Clipboard freezing page

Posted 12 February 2013 - 08:39 AM

I looked to see if this was posted and didn't see a topic on it and since it's happening on 3 different machines for me, I thought I should post what is happening.

When I click the copy to clipboard link in a code window FireFox freezes. I cannot scroll or do anything with the page until I close the window and reopen it. Didn't know if this was something you guys were aware of.

Windows 7 64bit
FireFox 18.0.2

EDIT: something I just tried was to click the firefox menu and when I did and switched back to the tab I received the message that it copied to the clipboard.

From what I can tell the javascript popup isn't visible. Once you click 'copy to clipboard' and it appears to lock up click the space bar. In theory that should be already on the 'ok' button that you can no longer see.

Thanks modi, that's a better work-around.

The version of the code highlighter used in code tags, use flash for the copy feature.
Shame that more update versions doesn't work will on DIC.
