(Whiteboard: p=3)

Tested on 2013-08-02 using I noticed that pasting large selections made the text disappear in the text area, but eventually the text reappears. It just takes a while. This could be hardware dependent, because I haven't seen this in other hardware.

1. On Acer Iconia W3, open Firefox Metro
2. Go to
3. Long-tap on one of the text areas and "Select all"
4. Tap on the other text area, and long tap to Paste

Expected: Text is pasted without delay.

Actual: All text in the text area disappears temporarily, and a few seconds later it appears.

Tested on 2013-08-06 with the latest nightly.

This happens only in Metro Firefox. In desktop nightly the text is pasted instantly.
