Default 4.2 bug - can't paste in browser

Please Login to Remove!

This is something I have only noticed on my 8700 since upgrading to OS 4.2. I have tried the Chinese and German versions and the problem is the same - if you click the wheel when in a text box in the browser, no menu comes up so you can't paste etc. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a work-around, maybe a ctrl-v type shortcut that works as paste on BBs?

I too have noticed this. The work around is to press the NUM key and the click wheel at the same time to paste the copied text into the text box.
