I sure do. Check the setting on copy and paste in the virtual cursor options found in the Adjust JAWS options dialogue box, accessed with JAWS key+v. By default it's set to copy the full content exactly as it appears on screen, including any highlighted text. You can set it back to the original behaviour, which is to copy from virtual cursor by pressing space on the option and then pressing enter once the correct setting has been identified. This is a permanet setting unlike some other options. Hope this helps.

Subject: copy and paste from firefox

Heya folks,

For a long time now when ever I copy any text from a firefox webpage and
paste it in a notepad or word document the text is not correct and all over
the shop with what I actually copied. Am using jaws 8 and 9 both do the same
, does anyone else have a similar problem?
