Fix My Inputs

Description from extension meta

Re-enables any disabled oncut / oncopy / onpaste / oncontextmenu / ondrag / ondrop events for all input text elements in web pages

Image from store Fix My Inputs
Description from store This is a Chrome / Chromium extension that re-enables cut / copy / paste / contextmenu / drag / drop events in any web page where the website author has decided he/she knows better than you and you apparently have no want / need for that functionality to work. This extension can also optionally re-enable disabled mousedown / selectstart events that publishers sometimes use to try to prevent selection and pilfering of their online content; a futile thing to do with public HMTL content. To be fair I do completely get why web devs and the companies they work for go down the route of disabling this stuff but at the same time find it annoying and downright counter productive from time to time so this is why Fix My Inputs exists. If this drives you mad too and you want an unobtrusive way of re-enabling these disabled events in the web pages you read then this is the extension for you. The Options page includes 'whitelist' functionality and any domains added in here will be completely ignored by the extension.

  • (2018-09-23) Timofey Danilevskiy: This extension blocks Drag & Drop. Please fix.
  • (2017-10-27) Philip Reich: I like the concept of this extension, and it has been helpful to be able to cut-and-paste text from sites that decide to prevent this from happening. However it doesn't always work -- the most recent instance was on Facebook, when someone shared a link to a vimeo video, and the facebook "preview" that appeared had text at the bottom, but it could not be selected. Instead a grayed-out image of the link's URL could be seen being dragged around by the mouse pointer. Hopefully the dev can fix this somehow.
