Maybe its just me, but if I press shift + insert in order to paste the contents
of the clipboard nothing happens and pasting with Shift+Insert works anywhere else.

However, using CTRL+del to cut and CTRL+Insert to copy works fine for me as well
as using CTRL+v to paste, but shift + insert doesn't work at all.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put something into the clipboard by copying or cutting some text
2. Go to URL
3. Press shift+insert in the editor window
Actual Results:  
nothing happens

Expected Results:  
text should be pasted from clipboard

this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not

Still broken (or mine is a different bug) in SeaMonkey 1.1.3 in Windows XP.

To reproduce, go to GMail, and compose a message using the Rich Text editor, then try to paste some copied text using SHIFT+INSERT. Nothing will happen. CTRL+V and other paste methods still work.

Switch GMail edit window to plain text, and SHIFT+INSERT works fine.

In IE 6, SHIFT+INSERT works fine in the GMail Rich Text editor.
