Hello Roncor, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Not sure what you mean, but when you have the Restricted Sites window open, you will have to open a separate IE window to copy the address from instead. It would be best to copy the address first (ex: from IE address bar), then open the Restricted Sites window to paste it in, or just type the address in it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
