If you are comfortable altering the Firefox configuration file, you can enable Javascript cut, copy, and paste with mouse context menus.&nbsp; Please see this [http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?locale=nl&forumId=1&comments_parentId=190951 Mozilla page] (external link) for information on how to allow Javascript access to your clipboard.&nbsp; There is also an Add-in that will do this automatically.&nbsp; This has security implications and you should only enable this option for web sites you trust.

==== Using Firefox Context menus and Spell Checking<br>  ====
 
  
The Keyboard shortcuts for Cut (Ctrl-X), Copy (Ctrl-C), and Paste (Ctrl-V) are enabled by default, but the mouse context menu is not.&nbsp; The context process does not allow sharing the context menu.&nbsp; Older versions of Firefox and other browsers did not allow "sharing" of the Context menu.&nbsp; More recent versions of Firefox do allow sharing of the Context menu with Javascript. &nbsp;&nbsp; This is not recommended because some Table Editing and Link Operations in the Wiki will be blocked.&nbsp; This option affects all web sites.
 
  
On older Firefox browsers, Click on "Tools", "Options", "Content" tab.&nbsp; To the right of the "Enable Javascript" check box, click on "Advanced...", then put a check mark in the "Disable or Replace context menus".
