Can't copy and paste. Answered

I cannot copy and paste on this site.
I noticed this when replying to a comment to one of my Instruactables: Knex 'Puzzle' Ball lift.
(now I need to manually type the URL)
https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-ball-lift/
I am using Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7.

EDIT
I have swapped to Google Chrome and I do not have the problem.

Have you tried using CtrlC / CrtlV ?

Yes. When I do that, the text appears for less than a second, then disappears.

If I have already typed something then press Ctrl+V, the text appears at the start of the entire text field (regardless of where the vertical flashing line is).

I have noticed the same thing happening .. it only seems to occur when commenting. pasting works fine when editing an Instructable.

Looks like I'm not having that issue.

I'm using Chrome, but I can copy and paste to comments. When I paste the comment, it pastes, but then after a second, the letters become a bit smaller.

This might have to do with font, or something like that...

I have also been having problems with copy/pasting, including using the CtrlC / CtrlV! Its rather annoying.

Especilly when I have to type in URLs
