I cut a whole paragraph, and then I copied another sentence. When I pasted the copied sentence, it worked; when I tried to paste the cut paragraph, it did not.

I want to find the cut paragraph, so as to post it, w/o having to retype it. It is a legal matter, and I don't want to change anything on it. Please tell me how to retrieve it, to paste ASAP. Thank you :)

So you cut something, then before you pasted it you copied something else? The thing you cut is gone then, as by default Windows will overwrite whatever is in your clipboard with the next thing you put in it. There may be third party clipboard management programs that work around that, but regardless this isn't a firefox problem.
