    I just did a regiular copy and paste of your question. I first copied it, then I opened a reply and pasted it into the reply. If this is not whatytou, mean, please explain what you want to copy & paste.

    I'm using IE7, and once I copy (using the mouse), I open a reply and using the mouse again, I paste whatever I copied. I'm confused when you say "then hit reply and it pops up a box that has cut copy paste and none of these work with IE7 or IE8[​IMG]"

    Are you saying that you see cut, copy, paste from within the tool bar? I just use those functions  with the right-hand side button on my mouse.

I had the same problem until i saw yours and tried it again. For some reason i clicked on the "source" button and it then allowed me to paste..

    if you look at where the reply button is to the left of it is a " click that and it will do the quote of the post

    Can you use the EDIT function at the top of your IE where you see File Edit View Favorites Tools Help?

    It's popping up a security box for me, too, and I'm using Chrome. [​IMG]   If I try to right-click and then click on "paste", I get the box that makes me paste it again and then hit okay to insert it in the box.

    However, if I copy the text I want, click in the "reply" box, and then hit Ctrl + V, it bypasses the problem and pastes the text.   See if that works....
