Copy (using ctrl-c or copy from context menu) quite often doesn't work

Posted

Quite often i cannot copy anything from Firefox (it's not about a page), sometimes i need to try 10 times...and finally it works. I try by ctrl-c or context menu and nothing, there is still old value in a clipboard.

What site are you trying to copy from? Sometimes sites prevent one from doing such actions for legitimate reasons.

Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.
