Copied text from Firefox, closed Firefox with menu > Quit -> text could be pasted.
Copied text from Firefox, pasted the text, killed the Firefox process -> test could still be pasted.
Copied text from Firefox, killed the Firefox process -> The clipboard was empty. You couldn't paste the text copied now, nor the one copied before.
