I have to paste/special/text when copying from Firefox and pasting in Word or Excel
When copying data from a table on IE, I just have to paste (ctrl-v), and the data is pasted into appropriate separate cells.
In Firefox, I have to "paste special" and click "text" to separate the fields. Otherwise, all the data is pasted into a single cell or in the case of Word, one paragraph.
Is there a setting that can be designated to allow paste as in IE or as within Word or Excel?

The Dafizilla Table2Clipboard extension should help with this.
