Due to certain security settings in Firefox, you may have trouble pasting text into FCKeditor when you try to right-click and select Paste. Earlier versions of Firefox may not allow you to paste using Ctrl-v either. To resolve these problems, choose one of the solutions below:

- Using a text editor, create a file named
user.js in that directory.
