I can highlight something, hit Ctrl-C, and then try to paste elsewhere and it isn't there. Same with Right-Click/Copy. Ctrl-X still works.

Suggestions, please.

Oh, and "PC, Windows 7, 64-bit operating system, etc."

BTW, this seems to happen only in browser, Chrome and Firefox. "Curiouser and curiouser."

yes, on your browser it won't work. Use the right click context menu.

BTW, the right click context menu has a great feature, where one choice is search Google in a new tab. Use it all the time.

Don't forget to select/ highlight first.

I did mention I'd tried the Right Click/Copy feature in the OP.

IIRC, there is code that can be inserted into a web page to disable (easy) copying.

you must have a weird setup. ctl-x does not work in the browser for me.

Turns out some websites block copying. Others have found similar problems to yours. Here's a discussion, although it's a bit old.

Good luck, and let us know the fix.

Ctrl-V works, it pastes the last thing it "remembers", not the last thing I tried to copy. If I Ctrl-X something that will remain in the cache.

Most often I'm copying the URL from the URL bar, but not always.
