When I'm on youtube sometimes I want to past in a message in the comment section that I've already copied. But when I try to paste my message I can't. With internet explorer I don't have this problem but with Firefox I do. I'm able to paste a comment on youtube when I'm replying to someone though with firefox. It just doesn't work when I want to paste in an original comment with firefox.

What does "I can't" mean? You cannot paste the previously copied text or you can paste it but unable to save/post it because YouTube rejects it? Also always mention any error or message that you see!
Better details and more accurate information means better answers.

I know for a fact that YouTube is really picky and doesn't like some of the special characters (symbols above the numbers). Also, not sure where you copy the text from but there could be some hidden HTML, XML or some other type of code included with the plain text. Best thing to check for that possibility would be to paste whatever you want to put in your reply in a new text (Notepad) document first. The highlight and copy the same text within Notepad and then try pasting it in YouTube to see if it works.

It means I can't paste copied text in the comment section. But it works when I reply to someone. No error messages.

If anyone here uses Firefox. Copy some text and see if it will paste in the comment section of any youtube video.

I like to copy and paste comments I had already typed from other videos to another video dealing with a similar topic. This saves me from retyping.

Sorry, I never had that problem. YouTube never stopped me from pasting just as long as I was signed in. I did, however, run into saving a pasted text.

What version of Windows and Firefox are you using so someone with the same versions would be able to confirm but I would imagine it would be a pretty well known issue if it was not an isolated case.

I'm using Windows XP. Not sure of the Firefox version. I've had it for close to a year now.

Yeah it works for me but only when I reply to someone. I don't see the word "paste" when I try to paste in a stand alone comment.

When I right click in the comment box I only see the words: Back,reload,bookmark,save this page etc.

Ctrl-C to cut and Ctrl-V to paste.

I have this problem in Chrome. I right-click to paste my text in the comment box, but "Paste" is grayed out in the context menu.
