I managed to reproduce the issue on a fresh portable installation. I just made sure these options were checked:

1) mIRC Options > Other > Confirm... > Confirm when pasting 10 or more lines of text
2) mIRC Options > Display > Options > Editbox lines: Single

The next pass is to connect to an IRC network.

Then copy text longer than 10 lines. I tested with more than one text. I'll leave this text below as a test:
Code
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
cccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc
ddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff
ggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg
hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
jjjjjjjjjjjj
llllllllllllllllllllllllll
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
oooooooooooo
ppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp
qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq
rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
tttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt
uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Finally, ctrl + v in a window and confirm to send. Here most of the time it doesn't ship. However, I don't know why, sometimes it sends. When it is not sent, the ON INPUT event is not triggered.

Thanks for your bug report. I have not been able to reproduce this issue here so far.

Tested with a clean copy of mIRC, with the changes you mentioned in your post: confirm when pasting > 10 lines, and single line editbox. I used a small script to count the number of pastes using on INPUT:

Code
alias resetpastecount {
  %pastecount = 0
}
on *:input:*:{
  inc %pastecount 1
  echo 4 pastecount: %pastecount
}

After repeatedly pasting into different types of windows, including channels, queries, dcc chats, status, etc. the pastecount was correct for the number of times I had pressed Control+V.

Which version of mIRC and Windows are you using? Are you using any applications that modify/monitor/etc. the clipboard?

I cannot reproduce with the two options set (not a clean install).
It indeed looks like mIRC is not receiving anything, just curious, if you set your editbox to multiline, where it would fill the editbox with whatever you paste, can you reproduce mIRC not displaying the lines at all in the editbox? If you periodically check the content of the clipboard with $cb(), does $cb sometimes also gives incorrect result?

Thanks for the answers.

I discovered the culprit, it was the Free Download Manager, which I had installed yesterday.

Problem closed.
