The issue is fixed after removing an unused CSS class in a0f6ad33987aefd24dd7df5e41894f97aed789c7 , .invisible, whose functionality is setting the element’s visibility to hidden. The class was created since the very first few commits of Gitako at about 3 years ago and soon deprecated. I forgot to removed it in time so that it was kept until today.

When copy event is triggered inside the diff panels, GitHub’s script will append a new table element into DOM to sanitize the text to be copied. By coincidence, the element is of the exact same class name mentioned above, invisible.


Thus the table element is not actually rendered, which is Chrome/Chromium’s way of handling elements of visibility: hidden I guess, and the copy action fails.

What a bug.

The patch has been released in v2.7.2.
