STEPS TO REPRODUCE Set "middlemouse.paste" to true (or use unix) Load Mozilla Right click on a link Middle click on the document instance EXPECTED RESULTS You navigate to the page whose URI you copied to the clipboard ACTUAL RESULTS Component returned failure code: 0x80004005, nsIClipboard.getData in JS frame :: chrome://navigator/content/navigator.js :: readFromClipboard :: line 1542, data: no. The exception is caught and silently dropped, and we fail to paste the link. This was tested on Windows 2000 using a Netscape commercial branch build from Oct 30 2000. From browsing LXR it seems to me that on the trunk the code will only get called if you middle-click on a link, because of a regression that I think was introduced by Blake recently. I don't know if there is a bug on that.
Is this a duplicate of bug 58333?
i think so... *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 58333 ***
Perhaps nobody really uses middle-click pasting on Windows... This bug is NOT fixed (on Windows), and I don't believe it's a dupe of bug 58333. See 111337 comment 19 - there it surfaced again. I get the exact error message that is mentioned in this bug's description.
Changing to the component that I believe is appropriate for this, based on the component descriptions, and reassigning.

WFM on trunk (SM & FF), windows XP - can't find what fixed it.
