Does anyone know why I have these issues? I had them on my desktop and thought it was isolated, but have it also on my notebook computer.

Most of the time If I type fast the letter will not appear.

I can't seem to copy or paste also.

Got anti-virus software installed on your computer? Is it up to date? If so and your scans come back clean then I'd check the task manager, assuming you're running Windows. See if you can find a process that's chewing up all your CPU. If you don't know what the process name is then Google it to see if it's something you can safely shut down.

If all else fails, can I interest you in a real operating system? Main Page - Linux Mint

No issues here, running firefox for my web browser. My phone on the other hand... yeah, that is sometimes very slow.

Oh, you mean on this site? Sorry, didn't catch that. Definitely try a different browser. If you're running IE do yourself a favor and follow djv38's suggestion and try Firefox. I run Google Chrome and it is also fine. Seriously, guys, IE isn't worth your time.

It is only a problem on this site. I thought that maybe the site did it purposely so that you will have to become a supporting member, but I guess not.

I did try chrome and it did the same thing.

What works is if I type someplace else and copy and paste.

When you post... click the "switch editor to source mode" button. The very first button that has the small black "A" and the big blue "A".
I was having the same problem and found this works. You will also be able to copy and paste and use the :? smiley buttons. :mrgreen:

I had this issue on another site, just that one site, and finally fixed it by switching to another browser. It turned out that IE was creating a loop with the browser software. Switching to Firefox cured it.

The above recco is not my preferred option. It might work, and cudos for recommending it, but having to manually switch your editing mode is a workaround, it is not a solution. The problem shouldn't be there in the first place.
