You can paste the data no matter what, but on certain configurations support retaining the HTML formatting when you paste. Safari to Mail.app HTML pasting works fine. Firefox to Thunderbird HTML pasting works fine. Firefox to Mail.app HTML pasting loses the formatting. Safari to Thunderbird HTML pasting loses the formatting. Clearly Mail.app and Firefox have the ability to cut+paste HTML so I assume the problem is in how Firefox presents the clipboard to Mail.app. Mail.app doesn't realize that the clipboard has HTML in it perhaps? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Use firefox to select and copy some HTML to the clipboard 2. Compose a new message in Mail.app and paste. Actual Results: The text is not pasted as HTML but rather as plain text. Also notice that the Paste as HTML menu item (under Edit) is not highlighted. Expected Results: Paste as HTML should be highlighted and by default HTML should be pasted into the Mail.app message rather than plain text.

Um - that kinda sucks. I will probably have to switch to Safari. Not being able to cut+paste HTML between browser and the native Mail application is a big problem. And it's probably a fairly simple drag+drop negotiation fix ...
