Intermittently unable to copy (or cut) and paste address bars (website addresses)




Sometimes when I am using Brave and I have a website open, I want to take a copy of the website’s address for use elsewhere. I select the URL and press Copy or Cut to take the URL.

Steps to Reproduce

I do not know how to reproduce this error, however it has happened a dozen times.

Actual result:
The paste and Cut do not register. The last copy/cut item is pasted instead.
Cut is more obvious as it does not even CUT the URL from the bar as expected.

Expected result:
Cut/Copy to paste the URL where required. Have tried Notepad/Email (Outlook)/PowerPoint/Create Link (desktop shortcut)

Reproduces how often:

Brave Version

Brave 0.22.721
V8 6.6.346.32
rev bfe7cdd
Muon 6.0.12
OS Release 6.1.7601
Update Channel Release
OS Architecture x64
OS Platform Microsoft Windows
Node.js 7.9.0
Brave Sync v1.4.2
libchromiumcontent 66.0.3359.170

Reproducible on current live release:
i believe this is the current release

Additional Information

You can fix this by closing the browser (with tabs reopening) and copy/cut


Hi @DG412

We’re currently tracking this issue on this thread: Copy and Paste not working

We have an item logged in GitHub

Additionally, many users report that if you disable tab previews this helps to alleviate the copy/paste issue. You could try this and see if it helps.

I’m going to close out this thread as we’re tracking this issue on the one I linked. Thanks for reporting this issue!
