Why does Firefox prevent you from copying the HTML of other people's websites?

How else are you suppose to learn to make a website.


Answer by  SashaDarkCloud (5764)

Because the code used for a website is considered personal property by that web site. The way you learn is to study html code online and learn through practice.

Firefox prevents you to copy HTML of other people's website because the HTML code is copyrighted and copying it would be against the law.

Firefox, itself, is not the reason you are not allowed to copy HTML. Individual web designers can disallow right clicking or viewing page source on their own website. Otherwise, Firefox should allow you to view and copy the page HTML source.

It probably isn't FireFox stopping you - some websites have JavaScript which tries to stop right-clicking to view the HTML code. If you want to learn, your best bet isn't to copy existing sites as they can be a bit too complex - rather search online for free tutorials and templates.

Well people spend a lot of time or pay people a lot of money to design code for there site and don't like people coming along and copying there design. If you want to learn the are a lot of HTML websites out there to show you what to do.

Firefox does not prevent you from copying HTML from one website and applying that source code to another, newly-created page. From within the browser, right click within a site and select "View Source. " Generally, it is frowned upon by developers to simply "plagiarize" code, tag for tag. However, most are forgiving if code is utilized for educational purposes only.
