Recently, I think it was yesterday when I updated FireFox developer to 88.0b2 (64bit) on my OS Windows 10 Pro (x64) 22H2 19042.870.

Firstly I noticed "take screenshot" option dissapeared from "3 dots" on the URL bar. Secondly, the "paste" (right click or CTRL + V) stopped working.

I cannot paste text neither from my Notepad or some Text Editor as usuall to some input field or textarea on some Website.

I can copy text from some input field of an Website, but cannot paste the text inside it from a Windows Explorer or whatever.

What is that wrong with FireFox stable/unstable versions?

I've had problems on "normal" FireFox, now I got them either on "developer". I really like this browser, but more and more it seems I would need to switch to some other just because.

Chosen solution

Okay, fixed - Eset NOD32 Internet Security -> Web access -> Banking & Payment protection - I have had an option "Protect all Web browsers" enabled with "all extensions".

When I turned it to "diasbled", copy-paste of large chunk text as before is working back again.

This option prevented pasting large text into textarea of my Firefox web browser.
