Other thoughts are, try a different browser. If currently using a browser that isn't Edge or IE, try updating it to the latest version.

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.
Yes, highlight, then ctrl+C, then finish my response and hit quick reply.

If I go back to try and edit it out it doesn't show (quotation marks) . Looks normal but then shows back up in the reply.

It does it all the time now but just on this site.

Don't really want to use a different Browser but I guess it's worth a try.

Not saying you should but, it may help the coders behind the scenes figure out what is going on. Sometimes browsers will act differently.

Yeah, that is a head scratcher.

One last time to make sure I am doing it the same way you are. Do you do it this way:

1. Highlight the post you want to quote and hit CTRL+C.
2. Do you then use the quick reply box at the bottom of the page or do you hit the red reply button first here????
3. CTRL+V to paste it into the box.
4. Type your reply.

Or do you start with step 2 above (assuming you use the red reply button), then find the post you want to copy from there?

So your last post (15) wasn't from a different browser?
