    I use both FF and Chrome .. the problem is not the browser ..

    as I understand it is a java script that blocks copying form some websites ..

    try this page from Snopes .. can you copy paste ?

    http://www.snopes.com/autos/autos.asp

    a workaround in FF is to disable java script

    or

    Go to the web page you wish to grab the content from.
    Copy this code and paste it on your browser address bar: javascript:void(document.onselectstart=null)
    Press Enter.
    Copy and Paste whatever text you wish!
