A while ago I could'nt copy and paste from Ancestry to this site. My oh changed my browser and it was ok for a while but now it has happened again.

I have tried refreshing both pages to both sites but still my work comes out all spread out and it is so frustrating. GGGRRRRR

I had IE and oh downloaded (or whatever) Mozilla Firefox and it was ok for a while but then it started again.

I can't really get on Familysearch either properly.

It is the main reason I don't answer so much. Before I edited my copy 'n paste somebody has already found the info.

Personally I find it very hard to follow any message which has huge white line spacing. Being considerate I think of others like me.

I have no problems whatsoever using Chrome, plus it's the safest browser according to reviews and comparisons.

Yes Sylvia it does matter which browser. I tried an Anc'y record using IE9 and it was spaced, the same record using Firefox was normal.

Thanks, Ken


so does that mean it is an IE problem or a GR problem?
