I just tried it on another computer, which only had firefox (no chrome). It worked fine - i could once again cut and paste. As a test, i downloaded chrome onto that computer, and low and behold, it did not work.
Now i am back on my own computer, and can successfully get it to work with firefox. I guess chrome must have updated in the last week, and something is not working now. I had not thought to try another browser, since I had the functionality on chrome previously.
Anyways, problem solved for me, i will just use firefox!
Thanks again for your help.
Thanks for the update!
I do see similar issue with chrome (after updating to the latest version), we will investigate this problem. Good to know that firefox works fine.
Just to update, the problem seems to be related to the new flash player version in latest Chrome, where you can copy/paste plain text, but not form fields. Will work with Google and flash player team to fix it.
