Trying to insert a hyperlink now fails as I cannot paste into the pop up box.

This worked in beta and still does on other stack exchange sites.

    Yeah, it works if you delete the http:// before pasting Jan 30, 2011 at 22:31
  • Thanks for that Griffo - I've just been clicking ok with the http:// url, and then pasting my own link after that. Kind of a pain, but should be an easy fix

The fix will be in the next deployment.

  • This must be the absolutely weirdest browser bug I've ever seen (it only happens in Chrome). This was caused by a CSS rule that has nothing to do with anything even remotely related to that input box.
