    Copy/Paste vs. Ctrl C/Ctrl V

    I had an issue recently where i tried to copy/paste into a search bar, and also typing it manually, but it came back with no results both times. Then a friend mentioned using Ctrl C/Ctrl V. Using that, it went through and i found what i was looking for. My question is why did that work and not the other 2?? Never had that happen before??

    If the same text was entered each time (regardless of method) that doesn't seem possible

    Ghosts. Or random errors. Or spelling mistakes. Or you live behind a government firewall. Seems impossible. different search engine?

    Some websites don not allow the cope/paste method. I have experienced this many times, especially where it requires your private information, it doesn't let you copy/paste but ctrl c/ctrl v works.
