Thank you so very much for the big brother approach to my security concerns.  I am old enough and mature enough to determine what site I want to cut and paste from.

I set up user.js as directed and cut, copy and paste still do not work.

Following is my user.js

user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "allowclipboard");
user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.sites", "http://www.northcountryridermagazine.com");
user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.Clipboard.cutcopy", "allAccess");
user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.Clipboard.paste", "allAccess");

I have also tried setting the sites to "http://www.northcountryridermagazine.com/cms" which is the cms portion of the web site and that does not work either.

Any help would be appreciated.  I like Firefox but if this is going to be an issue then then I will be forced to switch browsers.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log into a site with rich text editing
2.Highlight some text
3.attempt to copy and get the pop-up stating that copy and paste are not supported.
4. Shutdown Firefox and remove from tool bar.
5. Find the Firefox profile directory and create user.js
6. Restart Firefox.  
Actual Results:  
Copy and past still not supported

Expected Results:  
Should be able to copy and paste
