When copying text from Microsoft Word 2002 or Microsoft Excel 2002 cells with
either text or numbers, the information will not paste into Mozilla mail.

I can paste the information into Windows notepad version 5.1 and then copy the
information from Windows notepad into Mozilla mail.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start Microsoft Word
2.  Enter some text and select Edit/Copy
3.  Start Mozilla mail
4.  Type in the send to address
5.  Leave the subject line blank
6.  Either press CNTRL/V or Edit/Paste

Actual Results:  
Sometimes the cursor appears to jump a little but nothing appears

Expected Results:  
The text should have been pasted in from the clipboard.

I have this problem in 1.7b. Actually, the text _does_ paste, but it doesn't
display in the mail composer window.

Text pasted from MS Word ( Microsoft ) won't show up in incoming e-mail messages
either. Recently received e-mail with formulae pasted from Word, but I couldn't
see anything. The mail was sent to a Yahoogroup and in the plain-text version of
the message viewed through the Yahoogroup's website, the text was present
[showing that it was actually sent, but just not displayed by the Mozilla mail
client]. Various symbols came out wrong on the Web site, viewed in both M1.7b
and IE6.

Is this bug a duplicate of anything? This is a serious problem for me and I'm
surprised it hasn't attracted more attention.

Do you see this with a recent build such as Mozilla1.7.6 ?

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
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
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
