I go to this website: 
To copy and paste content that I created with Notetab. I get a message stating
to click on OK to go to and see a technical document on how to
activate the clipboard. 
I follow the instruction to create a user.js file. close Mozilla, restart it, go
back to the same website and I get the same message.
It's very aggravating and I would ask that in future version, users have an
option to check on/off the clipboard. the user.js is an ineffective kludge.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  
It should've pasted my content from Notetabe to Moveable type's interface

The reason you can't is that it opens up a security hole to enable this
functionality, in general.  As a result, only users who really know what they
are doing should be able to change this setting...
