I have been running IE10 for about two weeks now. I have just tried to re-post a census that I posted to a thread on the 18th with no problems - today I have got the gaps.

So, it looks as if the problem is recent.

Its the same on IE9 Potty....I only noticed it happening yesterday

It isn't happening with copies from familysearch - which has happened in the past. Hopefully just a short-lived glitch?

Google Chrome is the browser that I use. It works fine for me so it might for you.

Give it a go.

As jax has said the C&P for IE is back to normal now, i.e. either use Compatibility View or View Printer friendly.

Remember that IE compatibility view "torn paper" will only appear when IE detects a possible compatibility issue, it will appear for some sites but not for others although you can over ride this on IE10 by going to Tools, then compatibility view settings, then enter the web addy

I'm using IE10 at the moment and on GR their is no compatibility icon "torn paper" in the address bar but if I go to say Freebmd then it reappears in the address bar.

If you copy from one web site and paste into another then this needs to be taken into account,
