I am using Firefox 1.5.0.8 and cannot copy any text or links by right click and copy, or by copy on the edit menu. Whenever I do this, the paste option is not available. I have tried this function with IE and it works fine, so this is just a Firefox problem. Also, I use Firefox on all my computers, and this function works fine everywhere but my laptop. Is there an option somewhere that I'm missing?

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

This problem is usually caused by malware. Read the discussions in the link I provided to understand how to search for evidence of the malware "advertisemen" and info on how to remove. You should read the entire info before searching.

You might also consider upgrading to FF2.0
