When I copy text from other websites, I'm not able to paste in the text field of Whatsapp Web. I'm using Firefox Developer Edition Browser in my laptop. But when I copy text from Whatsapp Web itself, I am able to paste in the text field.

This issue started happening just a few days ago.

Here are my specifications:

Browser: Firefox Developer Edition 117.0b8 (64-bit)

OS: Pop!_OS 21.10
