Is there a way to copy text colors and background formatting in firefox?

Posted

Something I do at work fairly regularly is copy and paste an entire page from Chrome to MS Word, by selecting all with Ctrl+A and then pasting. When doing this in chrome, the page text, text colors, and background formatting and colors are copied. When I do the same thing in Firefox, only the plain text is copied. Is there a way to make Firefox mimic this behavior? The two screenshots I have attached demonstrate what I mean. If needed, I can provide more info, or additional screenshots!!!

Thanks in advance!

Firefox only copies inline style rules and not CSS rules added via a style sheet to the clipboard and you would have to paste this in an HTML capable editor (text/html).

You can check this via "View Selection Source" in the right-click context menu.

That makes sense. Thank you. Are there any addons that can change this behavior? If not, I guess I'll have to stick to chrome at work.
