    Do I need a special extension for Firefox to be able to select a
    paragraph from a web page so I can copy and paste it else where?

  2. No, it should work fine. I just did it as a test, no problems noted.

    What happens when you try?

    When I go to select the paragraph or any word and let go of the mouse
    button, the selection doesn't stay highlighted. I just can't select

    What extensions have you installed?
    Have you tried restarting your computer?

  5. There is an extension called Auto Copy which will do what you want.

    I have Auto Copy as one of my Extensions. I also have Chatzilla,
    Bandwidth Tester, Autofill, Linky, Infolister, & Magie.
    I must also mention when I right click a web page and select select all,
    nothing selects. When I left click anything to select and let go of the
    mouse, the selection is not highlighted anymore.

    OK, I figured it out guy's. There is a setting in Options that was
    checked so as to unselect after copy. I unchecked the box and it works.

    Thanks anyway!
