Right click the page = right click what action? Right click on the mouse, you mean "select all" then what?
The View (top left of screen) gives facilities for toolbars, sidebar, zoom, page style, character encoding and full screen. (?)

Ah OK...found out how to do this but just get a lot of guff I can't decipher...i.e.

ead> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/> <title>Where is View Source? How can the source code of a website be viewed? | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support</title> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="512x512" href="//support.cdn.mozilla.net/static/img/firefox-512.png?v=1"> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="256x256" href="//support.cdn.mozilla.net/static/img/firefox-256.png?v=1"> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="128x128" href="//support.cdn.mozilla.net/static/img/firefox-128.png?v=1"> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="64x64" href="//support.cdn.mozilla.net/static/img/firefox-64.png?v=1"> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href="//support.cdn.mozilla.net/static/img/firefox-32.png?v=1"> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="//support.cdn.mozilla.net/static/img/firefox-16.png?v=1"> <link rel="search" type="application/opensearchdescription+xml" title="Firefox Help" href="/en-US/search/xml"/> <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" href="/en-US/questions/973832/feed" title="Recent answers to Where is View Source?

Depends on the website on how far down the actual story or content you want to find is ?
Post a link to the webpage,
Cheers.

Thanks for your persistence with me but I am not following your train of thought very well. I am fairly new to all this. Is it that you want me to paste the page where I try to copy isolated sentences and fail? Or just any page with a view source? What does the view source tell you?

A feature of the last 3 or 4 versions of Microsoft Word has been the ability to add multiple bits of selected data in its clipboard. Word's clipboard holds more individual items than the one item the Windows clipboard is limited to, I think 26 is the latest.

Depends

It depends on the software.
Excel has had the ability since at least Office 2000 (the earliest version I've used).

I can't select non-contiguous text in PM25 on this forum.
If I hold "Ctrl" down and then try to select some additional text, something else gets selected.

Same here for this site. I've tested on other sites and it works fine. Not sure what would be causing other people to have this problem though.
