What would you like to do?
Paste Enabler, remove attributes from form text fields that restrict copy and paste operations. Tested to be working on many financial websites, though on some it causes duplication (workaround: undo).
attrs = ["onpaste", "oncopy", "onfocus", "onblur", "onkeyup", "onkeydown", "onkeypress", "ondrag", "ondrop", "onclick", "onmousemove", "onmouseout", "onmouseover", "onchange"];
for (var i = 0; i< attrs.length; ++i) {
var it = document.evaluate("//input[string-length(@"+attrs[i]+")!=0 and (@type='text' or @type='password')]" , document, null, XPathResult.ANY_TYPE , null );
var l = []; var t;
while (t = it.iterateNext()) {
for (t in l) {
for (var j = 0; j < attrs.length; ++j ) {
l[t].onpaste = function(e) { = e.clipboardData.getData('text/plain');

@haridsv, I was testing your bookmarklet on, but it didn't work. The console spit out these two errors:

  • VM2940:1
    Uncaught ReferenceError: Raw is not defined
    (anonymous function) @ VM2940:1
  • pasteEnabler.js:10
    Uncaught TypeError: l[t].removeAttribute is not a function
    (anonymous function) @ pasteEnabler.js:10

This is in chromium 51.0.2674.0 on Windows 7. Any suggestions?
