I was reading a news:thread message that had a url in the body. I selected it and hit copy, I then switched to a browser window and right-clicked on the Location Bar and Paste is not an option. so copy is not copying any text in message display windows. didn't check other areas for copy paste issues.
not sure what correct component this Mail/News window message display (right-click) options falls under.
Component: Browser-General → Mail Window Front End
Product: Browser → MailNews

I confirm this bug as I've been seing this problem for months (WindowsME). Bug 79880 is Linux only. I believe they may be the same problem. If you dup this against 79880, please change that bug's Platform/OS to All/All.

I was using 3 pane message windows. Again no text is copied to clipboard from the context menu's copy command after selection.
I had just selected a www.anyurlhere.com text.. it was not at all a hyperlink.. then as I stated, selected copy on the context menu.
Spam: Just a thought about why these dont work: maybe they are related to the editor's context-menu is not currently implemented and this is a part of that, a partial implementation.
see similar problem bug 108084 with composer.
also see bug 103064
Isn't this a dupe of bug 107635 ? (if reproducible only when context menu is used)
I see this problem recurrently with both context menu paste and Edit -> Paste.
Jacek, I was talking about the context menu Copy command. Reporter said "no text is copied to clipboard from the context menu's copy command". If you use context menu Copy and : - you are not able to paste anything on another Moz window or an external app (like Notepad) - or you paste a string copied with previous succesful copy command - ctrl+c then Paste works for the same text selection, then this is definitely a dupe of bug 107635
Dimitros: Possibly this is really what the reporter meant. But I believe there is another problem with paste not working. You can paste into another application but not into Mozilla. From the reporter's comment I'm not sure which it is.
there has to be a meta-tracking bug for Mail/News Context Menu bugs, because bug 103064 only talks about adding new context menu items for images.. not fixing Edit context menu items. Going to do a search.. and then maybe have to change several bug's dependencies. :0

this bug I'd like to say that you cannot use 'context' menu copy, but copy link address for copying links, and copy for text.
