When trying to paste text on certain websites, no text is pasted. In previous versions before updating to 8.1 with IE 11 the paste function worked but since updating to 8.1 with IE 11 it no longer allows the paste function to work.

Thanks for sending us feedback!

This issue is currently caused by issues external to Internet Explorer. performs user-agent string detection to offer users different site functionalities based on the users' browser type. In this case the site wasn't able to correctly detect IE11's new user-agent string. We're scheduling to provide outreach to the site.

If you believe the problem is due to Internet Explorer, please re-activate the feedback.We continue to welcome more feedback, so please don't hesitate to report other ways that we can improve Internet Explorer.

Best regards,

The Internet Explorer Team
