When I Highlight, Clip Help/Spell copies to clipboard
« on: April 30, 2012, 01:35:38 PM »
Every time I highlight something, it automatically goes to clipboard.  Seems to interfere with Liquid Words.  Been through all the preferences and can't find anything.  I'm using Firefox.  Any help?

Do you mean that everytime you highlight something in any program, or in firefox, or only when you highlight text from within Clipboard Help+Spell?

Any thing I highlight while using Firefox, I get the nice "blurp" sound and the word or phrase automatically shows up in the clipboard - no ctrl-C required.

OK so you must have a plugin for firefox (or a setting i don't know about) that is doing this, automatically copying to clipboard on select -- it's not CHS doing it.

I think you're right.  I'll go through my add-ons one by one.  It doesn't clip highlighted words when CHS is disabled, however.  Firefox is getting buggy.  I'm using Opera more.  Thanks for the replies.

@wkerby: Not sure if this will help: there is a Firefox add-on called Auto Copy 1.0.1 which does this, except it should copy automatically regardless of whether CHS is enabled.
If "Firefox is getting buggy" then it may be that you have some bad or conflicting add-ons.
I say this because Firefox otherwise is generally stable as anything - even the latest ß versions, which I run all the time.
I use a lot of add-ons and Greasemonkey scripts, and the only time I get any problems is when one of them starts to play up (usually because Firefox has been updated!).

By the way, Auto Copy works fine for me (I use CHS also).
