For any website being visited, I cannot copy any portion / all of the text , or even any image and say for example, paste it in word document or note pad. The Edit/Copy does get highlighted, and one feels one has been able to copy, but when the copied text/image is pasted on say for example, a Word Document (here too the paste does seem highlighted on Right Click or from Edit/Paste menu) , but NOTHING gets pasted at all! The Office Clipboard too shows Empty ! Several tries, using various Sites, resulted in same NO COPY / PASTE result.

Reproducible: Always

It should allow simple act of COPY/ PASTE.
