I am trying to use the firefox copytoclipboard addon, or the google chrome capture table addon.   When, I go  to ontariogasprices.com, the table contains an update and I want to grab the prices.   So instead of the price I get the word update.

  A friend needs to record data for some time so I thought these utilities would be great.  However the task goal is not being achieved with these addons.

Any suggestions,

Thanks,
Nigluc

nigluc--I went to the site.  Each price offers to be updated by clicking on the price.  I did that and went to a login site.  I think what is meant by update is that you can update the price based on new info you have.

If you want to put the price into clipboard, you would hope to use the usual left click/drag across the data to be copied and then Control+C.  But that site does not allow that.  The price cannot be copied.  (Everything else can be.)
