Whenever I select some text, whether it's multiple lines or not, if the string contains any combination of single quotes, it simply will not paste into any other program, though the string will paste fine into any text boxes in Mozilla. As far as other programs go, whatever was previously in the clipboard is erased, and nothing new is copied to it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Browse to www.newscientist.com. 2. Select some text with at least one single quote in it. 3. Attempt to paste the text into another program. Actual Results: The string allegedly copied to the clipboard will not paste into any other program except Mozilla. Expected Results: The string should be pasted properly into another program instead of leaving the clipboard blank (as far as other programs can tell).
worksforme with linux trunk 2005060905 and 1.7.7 copy/pasted "whether it's multiple" into gedit without problems please try a trunk build from .mozilla.org
