I'm a geek, a role-player and a biker.

I work for Diamond Light Source, developing open source scientific software for the UK national synchrotron facility. In the past I have worked in the robotics, mechatronics and laser micro-machining industries.

comment How can I selectively disable paste blockers
Thanks mvark, that's a great workaround for Chrome. For Firefox I have installed Disable clipboard manipulations and Pinned the Add-ons Manager so it is easy to enable or disable.

Please consider tidying up (deleting) obsolete comments. The comments so far don't really help me improve my question and you should all know that comments are not the same as Super User Chat.

comment How can I selectively disable paste blockers
Thanks mvmark. Investigating further, it looks like the specific page I was having a problem with uses some other method. I have updated my question, and I think an Stack Overflow question might be needed to come up with a definitive list of possible methods, so a bookmarklet can be written which covers them all.

@downvoter if you've have asked (commented) rather than just downvoting, I'd have updated my answer sooner.

A little investigation revealed that Quizo was the original developer, and the sourceforge project was the fork. See my answer for details.

comment What is the “Google Update” Firefox add-on?
@Brian True, but it is still the responsibility of anyone who does have enough rep to down vote answers which are bad, sacrifice for the greater good of the site and future visitors. Remember too that if bad answers get deleted then you get back all of that lost rep. *8')

comment Is there a way to specify separate scaling factors for multiple monitors in Windows 8.1?
I have a similar problem, and suspect it is down to poorly set up monitor 'drivers'.
