Ever came across irritating sites that have their copy paste shortcuts or commands disabled, I mean what on world do think of themselves. Seriously, in this Open source internet freak world why on earth they have to do this, what crap they are protecting and from what. To prove them idiot i am here with a trick that will fail their agenda and make you agree on the fact that anything can be done through internet. Guys hope you know about dark world of internet. Internet is so vast anything could be done using it and I challenging everyone it’s like an iceberg the part you see there is more to it deep down.
Oh no wait we are not deviating from the topic we may discuss that later but for now let concentrate on enabling copy paste i.e. to be able to do copy paste of the selected text from the sites that don’t allow us to do it. I have personally face this issue on sites where I had to submit my assignments. I believe assignments are meant to be copied, those who don’t they must get their facts clear. For this reason I found out this trick. To save my precious time ha-ha. 

For your information guys I am must tell you disabling copy paste for user is a myth they just use our own browser to stop us do that. It’s like someone preventing us from doing something at our own place. Why the hell we will tolerate that. So now we will retrace their steps and use our browser to enable copy paste.


For this trick we will need Mozilla web browser so guys if you are using chrome then please install Mozilla Firefox to get started. Once you are done installing open Mozilla then open the website that is haunting you with disabled copy paste as now we will haunt it. After opening the website open new tab type about:config in it. It is showing you some option to select you must agree to it yes I will be careful I promise. Then type dom.event in the tab it will open up some screen with options here you have to enable the clipboard event by setting its value to false. This is all that was preventing us from doing copy paste on the website.
  1. In Firefox, type “about:config” in the address bar, then press “Enter“.
  2. Select the “I accept the risk!” button.
  3. Type “dom.event” in the “Search” box.
  4. Double-click the “dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled” line to toggle the setting between “true” and “false” as desired. Set it to False

Other Options :

So, if setting the clipboard events to false doesn’t worked, then no issues we are having another way i.e. disabling the browser java-script
Warning !! It might degrade the site performance .

Firefox :

  1. Follow Above Step 1&2, used for enabling clipboard events.
  2. Type “javascript” in the “Search” box.
  3. Double-click the “javascript.enabled” line to toggle the setting between “true” and “false” as desired.

Google Chrome : 

You now need to hit the ⋮ button in the top right corner, then “Settings (F1) -> Debugger -> Disable JavaScript” to get to this option.
So guys now you realize when we don’t know things it’s so difficult to do even simple things. Concepts that are unknown to us may be appear like some rocket science but it’s not true nothing in this world is difficult you just need to know things. Figure out solutions be a learner always keep learning and keep tricking with this we end here and will come back to something more interesting next time hope you people are liking my work please do let me know if anything I can improve upon or anything more you want me to share as sharing is caring and knowledge always increase when we share it. Be a knowledge spreader and share by blog and help do any good I can do.
