  1. Thank you for the above advice -I cannot see you name actually- but it is too complicate for me and is not worth-while.
    YouTube, Google, whoever shall re-enable the paste in the comments.
    It’s really frustrating!

  2. Nice workaround, but Google still needs to fix this problem since they broke it for Gecko web browsers like Firefox, SeaMonkey, etc. 🙁
