"Copy to clipboard" option in code tags on javaranch doesn't seem to work on my computer or even on my laptop for that matter.
I use XP professional(with latest updates) with Firefox 3.5.2
Is this a problem with my computers or what?

Thanks

That feature doesn't work in all OS/browser combinations, and even where it works you may need to alter some settings. Somewhere in this topic is a lengthy discussion on how it does and does not work, and what to do to make it work on Firefox.

There is an option at the top of the code block something like "view plain". Try that, then ctrl-C.
