Copy-and-Paste in Firefox with OmniUpdate

One of the very first pieces of feedback we’re hearing from users about the new content management system is that the copy and paste buttons in OmniUpdate’s rich text editor don’t work in Firefox, but the keyboard commands (CMD+C and CMD+V on a Mac, CTRL+C and CTRL+V on Windows) do work. This is due to a security concern on the part of the Mozilla team.

There is a workaround to enable this functionality, but it is a little complicated and is not officially supported by OmniUpdate, the Mozilla Foundation, or IWU ITS. You can read more about the Firefox plugin you’ll need to do this, AllowClipboard Helper, on OmniUpdate’s support site.
