As the title indicates, copy/pasting does not work.

I'm on Windows 10, have installed Firefox about two days ago (I've recently switched to it) so the version of FF is up to date. I've looked up a few fixes before posting and they didn't work:

- Tried booting FF on safe mode and it didn't fix the issue - it clearly isn't caused by an add-on (and I've never had this issue in my previous browser with nearly the same add-ons installed). - other people seem to have had the exact same issue multiple times and it's lasted for years, so it's clearly a problem on FF's end.

Here is the issue described more specifically: Copying things from a tab from FF and into the online version of Word does not work - when I try to, the intended selection: - disappears a few seconds after I've pasted - or it does not appear at all - or when it does, it erases the entire sentence it was pasted next to it, which you can imagine is absolutely bothersome.

I've also tried to copy/paste statistics from a site called archiveofourown.org onto another FF tab. - What ended up being copied is only the last character of the entire content I was trying to paste, which I think suggests there's some issue with what's contained in the clipboard.

I'm mentioning these two websites because I'm guessing that something about them is probably conflicting with the copy/paste feature, however I'm hoping no one will have the gall to tell me it's those websites' faults and that I should just stop using them.

When pasting (while having hopefully copied the former selected content- and no, it wasn't the case), it always pastes the content which was last copied into the clipboard prior to that very attempt, which shows that the clipboard's content was not refreshed with the last selected copied one.

I'm surprised to see that FF has had such a glaring issue for years and for many other users, and updates have never given a fix for it. I'd like this issue to be fixed properly, because I'd hate to have to switch back to my previous browser. FF sports so many nice features that other browsers don't have, and it'd be a shame to ruin the experience with a bug so basic as the copy/paste feature being broken.

Where are the security settings for the editor?

After years of being able to copy and paste directly in FF, it seems that I'm unable to do so now. Now I have to right-click, select Paste and then Ctrl+V into the box. This is the message at the top of the box:

Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window. This really slows me down.

I use Firefox 97 on a Windows 10 desktop. One of the things I do with it is edit the modules on displayed web pages of a Joomla 3.10.5 site, which I manage. When I try to highlight something - to copy, or cut, or delete - the highlighting is so hard to see that I can't always tell what I've selected. It seems to be a very faint gray. This is especially annoying when I'm trying to edit the code in a module. How can I control how highlighted text is displayed?

Just to encourage you, I've tried the identical edits on my laptop, where I run Microsoft Edge, and the highlighting is perfectly clear. I'd rather stick with Firefox, but if I can't modify the highlighting, I'm going to migrate to Edge.

I used to be able to copy text in a youtube comment by long tapping on the comment and then dragging the handles to select the text.

This method of selecting text no longer works with Firefox for Android. It still works with other browsers such as Opera, Duckgo and Adblock Plus for Android.
