I highlight text from internet, then copy (either by key command or right click), then go to paste in a word doc. and the text does not paste into the doc. Copy and paste from website to website does work - only fails when I try to copy paste from the web to a doc. In fact, the word doc will remember the last thing I copied from a non-web source and paste that.

Note - I have restarted with add-ons disabled, I have restarted in safe mode. I have made sure that about:config setting for javascript and clipboard are enabled.

Did you try if Paste Special is working in case the default Paste isn't working (i.e. the clipboard content isn't recognized)?
