When I search for something and open a Reddit post with recommendations, I might select some text (ex. the name of a recommended thing) and drag/drop them into the new tab area to look each one up.

Reddit blocks this when you are not logged in. I don’t want to be logged in, especially when I’m on incognito or a firefox container since I’m shopping.

Here’s the source of the fix: https://www.reddit.com/r/uBlockOrigin/comments/14h098f/reddit_desktop_embed_button/

Here is the specific UBlock Origin filter you can add (click the popup --> click the gears for Open the Dashboard --> My Filters tab)

    Great tip, I didn’t even realize ublock filters were flexible enough to affect that

      There are filters for all kinds of things! I wiped all of mine some time ago so I’ve been building them back up slowly

      Ah well that would have helped my use case, this should help with anyone copying text to other places I guess
