For example, I cannot paste a long description into the description box when selling an item on ebay. I don't know if it matters, but the description I am trying to paste contains a lot of HTML. The text I am trying to paste averages about 8000 bytes. When I try to paste the text, the browser pauses for a second, and then nothing happens (nothing at all is pasted). Small amount of text pastes fine here. Netscape 4.x also pastes fine here. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Place a large amount of text in the clipboard from another app (text editor). 2. Try to paste into description box when selling item on ebay. 3. Actual Results: Browser briefly pauses, then nothing happens, nothing is pasted. Expected Results: Should have pasted the text! I don't know how much text must be in the clipboard before paste fails, but small amount of text works fine.
