Open Bug 1771600 Opened 8 months ago Updated 8 months ago

XA_PRIMARY cleared on exit


(Core :: Widget: Gtk, defect)

Firefox 100





(Reporter: hier-bei-mir, Unassigned)


Steps to reproduce:

  • Open Firefox
  • Select some text with the mouse
  • Close Firefox

Actual results:

selected text gets deleted from XA_PRIMARY when firefox is closed

Expected results:

selected text should, identical to XA_CLIPBOARD data not be deleted when firefox is closed.
Actually it is more of a question if this behaviour is by design or a bug?

Happens for me on Firefox from Mozillateam ppa deb package.

EDIT: Even if this is by design, I do not see any reason why XA_PRIMARY should behave differently than XA_CLIPBOARD in this regard.
