Copying a table from a web page using Ctrl+Select allows to select the information, but any copy/paste operations totally ruin the original table structure making it linear.  Copying a table should try to preserve the original layout of the data, so that any other program (like excel, google spreadsheets, etc) would easily paste it.

cell-1-1   \t   cell-1-2   \t   cell-1-3  \n
cell-2-1   \t   cell-2-2   \t   cell-2-3  \n
cell-3-1   \t   cell-3-2   \t   cell-3-3  \n


Reproducible: Always

Hmm, the patch in bug 236546 didn't fix this completely?
