This is a strange behavior and only reproducible on the Firefox browser, (surprisingly not on IE6 ;)
Details of the issue:
Here are the list of issues when using the comment form text area.
A temporary workaround:
1. I have observed, this issue gets resolved as soon as you log in to google account before starting to enter comment.
2. I have seen this issue only on the Firefox browser, IE6.0 does not have any issue even if I am trying to enter comment without login to google account. So you may want to try IE until this issue is resolved.
Possibly related Firefox Bug:
I came across this link on google Firefox Copy & Paste Bug , which also mentions about the copy/paste issue due to two reasons.
- First reason was a bug in Firefox which was resolved long back.
- Second reason is a malware. In this post they have mentioned about a Malware which could be causing this, but I didn't see a matching Malware on my system and I am still able to reproduce this issue on my Firefox browser. So there is a possibility that either Malware removal details may have changed or the old bug is re-introduced in Firefox recent releases. If its a bug then it seems to be a very old bug which was resolved long back.
Note for the Readers:
Dear blog readers, till I figure out the solution for this issue please try to use already logged in google account in case you want to do copy paste and other keyboard activities in comment textarea.
If possible, Please post your comments/suggestions from different browsers and let me know if it works fine.
Any Suggestions please:
Readers,Bloggers please post your suggestions/ideas to resolve this issue on my blog as this is annoying to our blog readers and many people are not leaving any comment just because of this issue/bug.
