Why the fuck does hitting ctrl+c when typing a reply delete everything I've typed?

I often connect through shitty internet, so I get into the habit of doing a ctrl+a (select all text) followed by a ctrl+c (copy selected text to clipboard) immediately before I click "Post Thread." This way, if there is an issue with the internet, I don't have to re-type my post. I can just refresh, paste, and click "post."

I can't tell you how many times I've done this on stp, only to have my post forever trashed. When I type "ctrl+c" it just deletes everything I've typed. Why?!?!?!

Can this be fixed?

yeah, this is definitely not an issue with StP, but rather something wrong with your computer.

just fyi, stp automatically saves what you type in the reply box every 60 seconds. what is saved stays in that box for up to 24 hours, so (assuming the 60 seconds has passed and you've typed something in the box) you can even reload the page and your typed text should still be in the reply box.

moved thread and added more detailed title

Maybe the browser/OS/keyboard has remapped Ctrl-C to Ctrl-X. You could test this by immediately Ctrl-V to see if the text is pasted back in.

lol. I definitely am hitting ctrl+c. A cut would be fine; it's not in my clipboard at all.

I utilize a lot of privacy-oriented modifications in my browser. For example 'dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled' is set to 'false' in firefox to prevent websites from being able to control my clipboard (ie: copy blockers). I also block javascript on all domains and only whitelist only as needed. And I have several other privacy-enhancing plugins.

I don't really care to debug this further, but it's most likely a malfunctioning script as a result of these customizations.
