Clipboard cut, copy and paste operativity is not working.

I cannot copy website addresses from Firefox tabs and paste them in other windows or tabs. Erasing AppInit_DLLs only solves the problem temporarily, then it reappears. There is no malware (pushow or new.net) in the system.

I have noticed that my clipboard goes AWOL every time i use a facebook game

For me it seems that no copy/paste functionality works at all. The copy and paste menu items are clickable but paste does nothing. If I copy in FF 4.08 the paste menu items are disabled in every other windows application.

That is exactly what seems to be happening. Patch, anyone?

I get a Firefox warning box (twice) stating:

GetLastError Not enough storage is available to process this command

My clipboard dies everyday, it's driving me crazy, lol. Same system details as OP

Read through Clipboard not working and the linked http://kb.mozillazine.org/Clipboard_not_working article (if you haven't already) and also check for malware.

Thanks Alice.... I spent 4 hours last week checking malware, finding nothing.... but still FF gives me "let's get back to IE" nightmares. I spend more time trying to get FF to work properly (without much success) than I spend on browsing... whatever is bugging us? There's always some problem everytime I upgrade FF...
