When using a wordpress blog (  my blog  using wordpress ver 2.3.1)  or a forum ( using vBulletin) both these allow users to enter a link into a post.
  When clicking the link button a box pops up that allows you to enter a link URL  that will be included into your blog or forum post.  
Text that has been copied into the clipboard cannot be pasted into this box.  Typing text works ok

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit a wordpress blog or vBulletin Forum post
2. copy a URL to be used as a link
3. click the button to add a link
4. Paste the URL into the pop up box 
Actual Results:  
No text pasted into box for URL

Expected Results:  
The URL is pasted into URL

This works ok in Firefox
