Hyperlink not being removed from quoted post

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Browser, version and OS: Firefox 80.0.1 64bit

 

 

 

What happened? Copied a username from a different website and pasted it into a quote. It came with a hyperlink so I went to remove said hyperlink. Regardless of clicking the "remove link" button when inside the hyperlink editor, nothing changes.

I feel like it shouldn't go away, if anything I like that it keeps the links.

This isn't about pasting keeping links, but about attempting to remove those links failing.

 

 

As a workaround you can paste unformatted text with Ctrl + Shift + V.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I have managed to come across the same issue.

 

@colonel_mortis Do you know of a workaround, other than to just copy and paste the link text from the link dialog into the main post and then delete the entire link manually?


Hi there! If you know about upgrading old machines with SSDs, I could really do with some help over in this thread. Any assistance would be appreciated - thanks! :)

Thanks for reading all this by the way!

By the way, my desktop is a docked laptop. Get over it, No seriously, I have an exterrnal monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset, ethernet and cooling fans all connected. Using it feels no different to a desktop, it works for several hours if the power goes out, and disconnecting just a few cables gives me something I can take on the go. There's enough power for all games I play and it even copes with basic (and some not-so-basic) video editing. Give it a go - you might just love it.

If you don't want to copy links etc. over then select paste as plain text from the mouse right click menu (Ctrl+Shift+V)

 

Sorry I do not know what the equivalent Mac command is.
