Unable To Paste Text While Commenting In Blogger Blogs ? [Problem Fixed]

NOTE: If you haven’t yet found any problem in pasting text, while commenting in a Blogger based blog, then you may ignore this post.

I used to face this problem in the previous version of my Internet browser and till date some of my readers do complain that they are unable to paste text/code in the comment-form while commenting on BloggerStop and some other blogs.
In Blogger blogs (Blog*Spot), comment-forms are separate frames (webpages) embedded in to the blogs. And if you are using Firefox v 3.5.x, then you might have experienced this problem too…

The best way to avoid this problem is to upgrade your blowser to the latest version of Firefox (v 3.6). Download and install it from here.

But for any specific reason, if you don’t want to upgrade, then in your present browser, i.e. Firefox 3.5.xx, while commenting, you just have to separate the comment-form frame from the blog (then you can easily copy/paste any text in to it).
To seaparate the frame, while commenting simply right click inside the comment-form, then go to “This Frame” and click on any of these options: “Show only this frame“, “Open frame in new window” or “open frame in new tab“.

Once you open the comment-form frame in a separate tab/window, you will be able to comment normally.

  1. Yeah, actually the problem is still there, for those who are using Frifox version 3.5 and older. Although I don't know the exact reason(s) behind it, but I'm glad it's not there anymore in the latest version of Firefox 🙂

  2. thanx for the solution……….I face dis problem in your blog lots of time but I didn't complain about it…

    I thought dat u hav put restriction on ur blog…..

    1 request….

  3. Hi Divya,

    Glad I mentioned this to you – I thought it was only ME! Glad others who have had this problem now can find the solution or workaround.

    Also in the comment box the navigation keys don't work (home, end, etc.) – so it is better to open frame in new tab.

    I too thought you had disabled copy and paste on your blog…

    You are such a wonderful and helpful Blog Master!

    Talk to you soon,

    p.s. Still haven't changed my post descriptions to unique ones yet…will let you know when I do.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Oh, thank you! I was trying to edit the HTML coding to no avail! The box takes up a lot of vertical room. I wish there was a way to make it smaller. I suppose I could just use the basic button instead of the box. When I have more people liking my site it should look good though, so I'll leave it for now and see how it goes. Thanks so much!

  5. in fact this is used by most bloggers as a good mode of moderation, how? easy many spammers use only one comment, so this mean that probably they copy and paste this comment many times, with tihs you avoid this problem, of cours this is totally annoying to other users.:-t
