    This has been one of the most informative threads regarding computers, programs, browsers etc., how they work, and how to fix problems with them, that I have read in quite awhile. Thank you for the info Todd.  Thumbs Up

      To use copy and paste in Chrome or Firefox, you need to use your keyboard:

      • Ctrl + X = cut
      • Ctrl + C = copy
      • Ctrl + V = paste

      That is a limitation of the web browsers, not Lottery Post.  It is a security feature that prevents web sites from accessing the contents of your clipboard.

      The keypresses above work anywhere in Windows.  They are standard keypresses, not something unique to Lottery Post.

      The hardest lesson to teach is what someone thinks they already know. 

      My directory realitist.com a php LD directory uses an internal admin editor that looks very much like the one on LP.  Only on Firefox I can't copy and paste, and have wasted tons of time trying to follow their instructions to allow copy and paste on a particular site, which I have never been able to get working.  Always the error message: Copy and Paste does not work on Mozilla.  Just tried the Ctrl XCV (and likely A) works like I used to use on netscrape.  Why on earth do they give all that worthless nonsense about enabling a particular website and right click security nonsense if Ctrl works, totally stupid.

      Computer genius was never ment as a slight, though you might not understand why I don't care for being labeled a "Guru".

              I am running Windows 8.1 Update version, with IE 11.  JAVA 7 Update 65 is installed under Programs in my Control Panel.    I thought this was the most recent version of JAVA that I Do need to keep.  Nothing else relative to JAVA is installed under programs in Control Panel. The JAVA Updater Control Panel Box is located at the bottom of the page on the right hand side, under the Hidden Icons arrow [it is a Gold Box,with a coffee cup].  I have tried to turn the Java Box off from this location, but it automatically turns itself back on again, every time I restart my computer.  It's as if "On" is the Default, and it will Not Allow me to turn the JAVA Box off permanently.

              Is JAVA really necessary in the first place ??  Will Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer 11 function properly Without JAVA ???

              I just discovered from Java.com that the most recent Update of Java, is Java version 7 Update 67.

                      This is dated but a quick and useful read about java. BobP

                        Java shouldn't be switched on standard in the browsers. A website will tell you if you need java. I used to play chess on Internet and needed java for it. You need to tell Windows where java bin is, to make java programs work on your computer. You can change the java settings by using the java panel.
