Default Copy, Paste, Strange quote Pops Up

It just started a couple of months ago. When I copy and paste from someone's response in a thread it leaves these stupid quotation inserts.

Example would be here -

https://www.f150forum.com/f118/repla...t-502a-435073/

I believe I'm the second response. I quoted a line from the OP's original post and you can see the [ ] left at the beginning of the copy and past and then at the end of the response.

Anyone know why or how to get rid of it?

No, my 6 yr old Toshiba laptop. What's strange is it just started doing it 5-6 weeks a go. I've noticed a couple of other folks recently that seemed to have the same issue.

Hmm, I also use Toshiba, have been for several years. Never had that issue but what I gather from the post you pointed out, it appears to be the code for changing text color except it's not working right because the end quotation does not complete the code. If it did you wouldn't see the code only the text color change.

Only thing I can think of is you didn't copy the entire line of text to include a complete text color code, or some malware on the pc that's causing it if you did not intend to highlight the copied text in a different color.

What's also strange is it only happens on this site.

What you saw is the same as it is every time regardless of what I C&P from someone's post and as I mentioned I noticed someone else's post a couple of days a go had the same issue.

What happens when you copy and then paste it into something like NotePad? Do they show up there?

Nope,

I C&P'd the thread title I left in my 1st post, it didn't do it there, just from someone's post into my response.

How do you do it? Do you highlight what you want to copy and then copy it. Then do you do the quick reply at the bottom or use the main reply button?

I assume this does it all the time? Just trying to see if I can reproduce it. However, it won't be a true test as I am on an iMac so will more than likely have different results.

Hmmm, just in case dl and run a scan using Malware bytes (Free) version. There could be some whacked code running although I've never heard of it in all my days of doing security work on pc's.

www.malwarebytes.com. I've used this software for many many years on several pc's and have fixed many as a direct result. Oh did I mention it's free?

I'm actually running it already. Just installed their "new" update about a week a go. I'm clean.
