Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Copy the text 2. Try to paste into another app. for example, Dreamweaver 3. Paste into a plain text editor 4. Copy the pasted text 5. Then paste into Dreamweaver or whatever app I'm using. Actual Results: nothing Expected Results: text pasted
I have observed that Cmd-C does not work when copying from a web page, but works OK for content in text fields. This might lead to the perception of the clipboard working "intermittently". The Edit menu always works.
Reproduced this with: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:2.0b9pre) Gecko/20110105 Firefox/4.0b9pre Updated the summary to reflect the reproduced case: Steps to reproduce: 1. Select read-only text in a web page (not a text field or text area). 2. Press Cmd-C to copy the text. 3. Try to paste anywhere you could normally paste text (e.g., text editor). Expected result: Copied text is pasted. Actual results: Previous content of clipboard is pasted. Workaround: Copy using the Edit menu (tedious and low a11y).
