Re: Sometimes I can't use a long password

Sometimes it does, sometimes devs go to great lengths to keep your keyboard from working right. For example Google (groups? forget) likes to catch "/" with JavaScrape and move your cursor to a search text box, so you can't use it there to trigger FF's quick plaintext search like you've been doing forever, so you have to hit Ctrl+F, which was ...insulting. Anyway, ITYM Ctrl+V? On the side, drag-select = copy and middle click = paste, in the other clipboard. Give *nix a try.
