Drag Dropping from Chrome into Firefox creates garbled text and chinese characters
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0 Build ID: 20160210153822 Steps to reproduce: From any chrome page I.E. Wikipedia English is a good candidate select a section of text. Drag and drop that into a content editable in Firefox. Notice the result is a bunch of garbled Chinese characters. Note if you look at the drag drop event the getData('text/html') also returns these Chinese characters where getData('text/plain') seems to give you correct text without all the formatting. This bug is related to: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=900414 It is present in Firefox 44.0.2 Actual results: Garbled Chinese characters. Expected results: Dropped html text from chrome.

Component: Untriaged → Drag and Drop
Product: Firefox → Core
It seems this was fixed by bug 586587 which landed after 44 branched. Can you please try to reproduce in Nightly and then again in Beta?
Firefox 46a2 (Firefox Developer Edition) has this bug fixed. Do you know where I can obtain a copy of Firefox 45 Beta so I can retest this on the next outgoing version?
Thanks for verifying in devedition! You can download beta builds here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/channel/#beta At this point I'm just going to mark this as a dupe of the bug where this was fixed.
