When I copy text from one of my mails via web-based mail agent, then create new mail and trying to paste text, I got pop-up with text "Unprivileged scripts cannot access cut/copy/paste programatically for security reasons. Click OK to see a technical note at mozilla.org which shows how to allow a script to access the clipboard". The pop-up has two buttons, "OK" and "Cancel". After pushing OK button as requested the pop-up vanishes and text is normally pasted in the new mail. But the pop-up is annoying and I would like to switch it of. How can I do it, when not able to get to those technical note?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login to your mail account on Centrum.cz (big fremail provider) - eventually create one testing account.
2.Open any received mail for reading and copy text from it.
3.Click "Write new message" and try to paste the text into its body.

Actual Results:

After pushing OK button as requested the pop-up vanishes and text is normally pasted in the new mail.

Expected Results:  
Get the text pasted normally.

Can you attach the source code of the write mail text to this bug here (save the page as text only and then attach here)? Did you paste the text into the textbox via Ctrl+V, Edit-Paste or how did you do that?

HTML source code requested

Was quite uneasy to save the source code, as saving the page as text file always resulted in empty (0 b long) file. However displaying the page source code and saving from there worked finally.

However it seems to show only the main frame, not the source of the frame we are interrested in. I am not able to find how to watch the frame source HTML itself, even clicking mouse just into the text and right-clicking there and opening Show page source from there still gives just this main frame code.

I am sorry to give up, but if you want another part of code, please send me some clue how to get it...

Too bad, that seems to be the wrong file. Normally you can get the Frame source by right-clicking in the frame and then "This Frame->View Frame Source" (or you can try "Save Frame As...; Web Page, HTML Only").
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!
