Fixed Investigate Edge URL pasting behaviour


Well-known member
Looks like Edge changed something in recent updates and it now copies URLs with title tag from the address bar. God knows what they are thinking.

Fixed - Furling fails when a URL is copied from Chrome address bar | XenForo community

This is how it pasted the link copied from the address bar in Edge. This was not processed by XenForo. It pastes this!

Update: Good thing this can be disabled. Apparently, there is a setting edge://settings/shareCopyPaste.

not a bug. edge made a new feature out of it that can be disabled from settings! was just posting here as a fyi in case edge users are confused about pasting urls copied from edge address bar! it's not xenforo specific as links are posted along with title in all rich text editors.

As I said, it might be something we wish to look into and workaround if possible. We would like to investigate.

I've moved the posts to a new thread.

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.3).

Change log:
Extend handling of pasting content from the Edge address bar to ensure only the URL portion is pasted.
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
