Possibly with my laptop again but I'm not sure.

I went to the database to the plant, Pachycereus marginatus and wanted to link to it on a thread but something is going on because the link at the top just says garden.org so I can't past a database link to the plant.

Hope that makes sense. It might be my laptop because I seem to be having issues lately. Seems like I can't copy/paste the little emoji's again so it's probably my computer. Grumbling

Well, I see the emoji worked that time, let me try the database link www.garden.org

I'm using Firefox and for some reason cannot copy and past a link from the database unless I open a second window using Chrome:

Trying from this page (using Firefox): www.garden.org

Using Chrome: Coral Honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens)

Thought maybe it was the version of Firefox I'm using, maybe I need to update but now it's not letting me past a link from Chrome either. Blinking

@dave - looks like there might be an issue with the URL parsing in the latest version of Firefox? I haven't tried recently, so here goes as a test:

Okay, so that worked for me on FF 50.1.0 on Windows 7.

@plantladylin - is it possible you have an addon in Firefox that is messing with the URLs and the clipboard (copy+paste functionality)?

I have a Macbook Pro (with Mac OS X operating system) at least I think that's what my husband once told me the OSX stands for. LOL, I'm really computer illiterate and have no idea what you mean about a possible add on in Firefox that is messing with the URL's and clipboard functionality but the copy/past function seems to be working now: Plumbago (Plumbago auriculata)

I'm pretty sure I need to update Firefox; I just checked and I have Firefox version 48.0.2. and for the past few months I haven't been able to open Utube videos or e-cards from friends and family ... I've been getting messages that I need to update to a newer version.

Hi Lin,

If you can't watch Youtube videos or view e-cards, then Firefox is probably telling you that your Adobe Flash plugin is out-of-date and needs to be updated (which shouldn't be affecting you copying URLs into your posts). I'm not sure what the process is for Mac OS X, unfortunately - perhaps your husband can update it for you?

Joshua, The copying and pasting of links is working fine now so I'm not sure what was happening with that earlier.

D'Oh! *Blush* Aha, Adobe Flash Player Plugin out of date... that's the message I've been getting lately, not about Firefox being outdated. I'm going to have my husband update the Adobe thing on my laptop since I don't have a clue how it's done. Thanks!
