copy link broken on firefox embedded web browser

There was an article posted in my slack that I opened, which opened in an internal view in slack with the three dot menu indicating it was powered by firefox. This seems akin to the Chrome webview stuff on Android but my terminology may be wrong. I wanted to share this article with a different group so from the three dot menu I clicked copy link and nothing was copied. I got no toasts or notification bubbles it just nothing happened.

Please let me know what other information you need or if there's a better way to put bug reports in, I'm now just migrating over to Firefox.

Hi

So that I can try and replicate this, are you able to share the link that you opened in the webview (not the link that you tried to copy)?

Hello,

Depending on the app, copying links could be disabled. For example, from the UPS app the copy link is not available at all. But from the Twitter app, "copy link" is available and it does work.

To confirm, if you open other links in the Slack app and try to copy the link, do they work? It's just this link you provided?

Thanks

Other links which open with the same intent are not copyable, I tried one from nytimes.com and one from juniperbooks.com. Testing the other options in the three-dot menu, "Share in Slack", "Copy Link", and "Share via..." all do nothing. Trying a random amctheatres.com link in twitter, it does work. And switching my browser to chrome I'm seeing similar behavior. So I guess it's not a FF at all.
