I've typed a bunch of text into a web page in Google Chrome. Suddenly, the page freezes. How can I copy the text to somewhere else, since I can't select it? The page also stores the text in a variable if that helps anything. I am running Linux Mint and the text is not all visible.
If the page has stopped responding this might not be possible, but you could try opening Chrome's developer tools (View->Developer->Developer Tools from the menubar, or right-clicking and choosing Inspect Element from the context menu) and attempting to locate the text you entered. For example if you are entering it in a
<textarea>, then if you select the text area in the element tab, then the text you've entered should be available under the "value" property on the right-hand side of the window.
