Basically I have a Mac and the copy and paste function doesn't always work in safari (web browser). To be more specific its pasting in safari - I can copy from safari and paste into word document. I have tried resetting safari however this hasn't changed anything. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

This sounds rather odd. I'm not sure if you can do it on a Mac but export your bookmarks so you have a backup of them and then uninstall and reinstall Safari.

Yeah. I can paste from safari into a word. But word/ safari into safari seems to have problems.

On a Mac its command instead of control (cmd c and cmd v). But yes it sometimes works but not always.

I might consider this if I still have problems. Maybe an update might sort it?
