User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:21.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/21.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130511120803

Steps to reproduce:

I copied some text from the address bar but it was not available after Firefox was closed. Windows 8, Firefox 21.0

Open Firefox -> New tab -> Enter some URL -> Copy it with Ctrl+C -> Open the URL.
Open notepad -> Press Ctrl+V -> text got pasted.
Now close Firefox and try to paste the text again to the notepad. It will not work. WTF?

Actual results:

Clipboard is cleared when Firefox is closed.

Expected results:

The content of the clipboard must remain even after Firefox was closed.
Also reproducing on the latest Nightly on Windows 7
