this is a limitation of FF. We should probably add code in the toolbar plugin to remove those buttons on that browser.

see http://dojo.jot.com/WikiHome/SetupCopyPasteForFirefox

probably we shall add that link to a warning message for FF?

those instructions are completely out or reach for any user who needs WYSIWYG HTML editing. It's best to just remove the UI.

yeah, i agree. let's just not display the buttons on FF.

comment:5 Changed 12 years ago by liucougar

after further discussion with Bill, we decided to issue warnings

how is that a better user experience? You need to justify providing options that the user simply cannot take advantage of in any resaonable sense, and no one has provided that justification so far. User experience must drive engineering, not the other way around.

This is so the user doesn't get confused (and stuck) thinking "where are the cut/paste buttons? how do i cut/paste?" It's also how other editors work, like TinyMCE and Google (nee Writely).
