User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0 Build ID: 20180310025718 Steps to reproduce: Using Debian Jessie amd64. Run 3 terminals in x session with the following commands: watch -n1 xclip -o -selection primary watch -n1 xclip -o -selection clipboard watch -n1 xclip -o -selection buffer-cut Highlight text in firefox, text highlighted is show in xclip primary and can be pasted back into firefox with middle click Highlight text in firefox and Ctrl-C, text highlighted is show in xclip primary and clipboard and can be pasted into firefox with middle click or CTRL-V Highlight text in remote VNC window, xclip primary and xclip clipboard now show empty values and the text highlighted is show in xclip buffer-cut. Neither middle click or CTRL-V will paste the content of the buffer-cut into firefox This usecase was working in Firefox 58.0.2 although I have not reinstalled 58.0.2 and confirmed that the buffers were working in exactly the same way. Actual results: Text in the buffer-cut xclipboard is not pasted into firefox. Cannot paste text into URL bar, or text field/text area. Expected results: Text in buffer-cut xclipbard buffer should be pasted into firefox
Confirmed this is a change in behaviour between version 58.0.2 and 59.0

I can confirm this bug, but I don't think it's a duplicate of #1446785. The steps in #1446785 does not reproduce this bug for me, but copying text into a VNC session does not work with firefox, but does with eg. a text editor. Copying the text locally on the VNC host works fine in firefox. And it definatelly happened in 59.0. Have not tested with nightly though.
Can reproduce the bug in Firefox 61.0a Nightly (downloaded March 26).
I have also reproduced this in Firefox 61.0a Nightly downloaded 26th March and also do not think it is the same issue as #1446785.
@rob, given that this change happened somewhere between 58 and 59, could you please try to find a regression range using Mozregression tool? Information on the tool is available at http://mozilla.github.io/mozregression/.
