Copy-pasting an indent from Google Docs to Word (or other websites) turns the indent into 5 spaces

It's pretty much exactly as the title says. If I copy formatted text from Google Docs that has indents and paste it elsewhere, all the indents turn into 5 spaces. All other formatting stays the same, though.

It's definitely some problem related to my browser, as I don't have the same problem on Google Chrome. I even tested it with the exact same file/text to be sure.

Any ideas?
