Chosen solution

Sorry! Firefox 44 reduced the number of different formats placed on the clipboard, getting rid of some older ones that used non-Unicode character sets. Users have since reported that at least one old application (Word 97) cannot access any of the more modern formats on the clipboard and thinks the clipboard is empty.

We had one previous report that CorelDRAW could no longer read text on the clipboard from Firefox, so I suspect you have the same situation: After updating i have problem with FireFox Clipboard. I don't know why CorelDRAW doesn't read the newer formats, but that's neither here nor there...

Firefox 45 is scheduled to restore the missing formats, but that won't be out for a few weeks. Until then, the workaround continues to be pasting into an intermediate application, selecting the pasted content there, cutting, and then pasting into the old application. Unless someone comes up with something better in the meantime.

Does this work if you first paste the text in another application and then to corel?

The current Firefox version places Unicode on the clipboard and this can cause issues with Unicode unaware applications.

Yes, if I first copy in another app and than to corel it works... but that doesn't look like a everyday solution to me.

So glad to hear the formats are being restored, it has been a nuisance having to paste into notepad and then copy & paste into Word - but a few more weeks isn't major. Thanks!!!! :-)
