(Keywords: regression, Whiteboard: Cut, copy, paste buttons intentionally broken in bug 1159490 by Ehsan Akhgari)

>>>   My Info:   Win7_64, Nightly 49, 32bit, ID 20160526082509
STR_1:
0. Move Cut-Copy-Paste toolbarbutton to toolbar
1. Open http://snag.gy
2. Press PrtSc key to make a screenshot
3. Right-click on the page, paste copied image to the page

AR:  It's not possible to use "paste" menuitem, because browser disabled it.
ER:  Either X or Y
 X) Everything should work just like before regression 1159490:  Step 2 - All items Should be disabled
 Y) Step 3 - all items should be enabled, i.e. Ehsan Akhgari should at least make his terrible design
    of Cut,Copy,Paste (that is illogical and doesn't make sense for people who use the browser) work
    as HE expects. I.e. should just finish the job. Or don't even start. I hope this concept is clear.

Okay. But now you're blocking the new API by hiding menuitems completely.
