A firefox does not copy information from outside. It copies only from the browser. why is that? I can not copy the information from the telegram and paste it in firefox.

but on other browsers all works.

If the problem returns, let us know. Then we can work on it.

Note that the usual steps to try in cases like that is to close (quit) and restart Firefox or reboot the computer.

Let's make sure your system is clean.

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

You can check for sandbox security issues.

You can set this pref to 2 or 1 on the about:config page to lower the sandbox security setting.

  • security.sandbox.content.level = 1
  • close and restart Firefox to make the change effective.

If '1' still doesn't have effect then try '0' to disable the sandbox.

If this didn't work then undo/reverse the change and reset the pref via the right-click context menu to the default value.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

could it be a one-time bug?

The clipboard is part of the operating system, and it's possible that Firefox lost access to it temporarily for some odd reason. If it doesn't happen regularly, it's difficult to figure out what could be causing it.
