Build. Hack. Play. It's just what we do.

Just in case anyone wants to try. I noticed that doing a ctrl-v (paste) in Firefox— even in 2018—- is still not working right. <-unless one of you guys have a fix.

In order to paste, say, plain text into a gmail message (like an url), I have to first

- make sure the focus is in the message body

- tap the TAB key once

- then, shift-TAB to get the focus back

*then*, ctrl-v works.

It’s a little thing. But it bothers me, has for a long time, but I’m not going to leave Ffx in order to see it gone. So by accident I found the trick laid out above. It’s a rickety workaround but I’ll use it for now. Hope someone else can.
