I need to copy/paste URL from browser into Free Download Manager. I copy it find but it pastes blank. I opened notepad and pasted there and it pastes fine in there.

What could cause this?


You can configure FDM to be "aware" of a browser (IE, Firefox and others) and also to automatically copy the URL in the clipboard. Go to Options | Settings and under Downloads | Monitoring, enable Monitor clipboard and any browser listed that you use.

  • Didn't help. Still can't copy paste and it doesn't recognize my clipboard. – Cory Nickerson May 5 '15 at 0:18
  • Apparently Webroot anti virus is doing this. Pasting worked when I shut off AV... – Cory Nickerson May 5 '15 at 0:23
  • @CoryNickerson: You should add that as an answer for future readers instead of leaving it as a comment. – Karan May 5 '15 at 4:06
